Camino Finisterre necklace - with heart
A gift for inspiration . . and caring
Skillfully made by silversmiths in workshops close to Santiago de Compostela, Galicia, northern Spain, this beautiful sterling-silver Camino Finisterre necklace features an open scallop shell. (The scallop shell is symbolic of the Camino de Santiago). In addition, there is a tiny silver heart, symbolising affection.
The 1,000-year-old pilgrimage to the shrine of St. James in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela is known as the Way of St. James (El Camino de Santiago - in Spanish). Every year, some 200,000 travellers journey along this Camino, by foot or by bike, from all over the world - often seeking inspiration and/or deeper spiritual understanding.

The Way of St. James criss-crosses Western Europe, arriving at Santiago through Northern Spain. Modern travellers choose to do the Camino for personal, spiritual and/or religious reasons - or simply to take time out from their busy, modern lives. For many, the walk is to find inspiration - improving their outlook on life, bringing them into closer contact with nature and expanding their cultural horizons through contact with other pilgrims. Everyone experiences the journey in a different way.
Gift this lovely scallop shell necklace to inspire a good friend or loved-one. A truly meaningful gift. Comes gift-wrapped, like all our presents - and we can print a personal message on your behalf.
