If you want to wish your friends or colleagues well and show them how much you care, let us send this meaningful present on your behalf. It is the ideal gift for any special event / occasion, particularly for someone starting out on a new adventure in life - like a new job, travelling afar or even beginning retirement.


Dimensions: The beautiful little 14ct gold-filled Camino necklace features a double scallop shell which measures 17mm in length (including the hanging ring) by 12mm in width. It hangs on an 18" 14ct gold-filled trace chain.


The 1,000-year-old Way of St. James (El Camino de Santiago - in Spanish), criss-crosses Western Europe, arriving at Santiago de Compostela in Northern Spain on the Atlantic coast. At least 200,000 people travel to the city each year from all over the world: Some people walk, others travel by bike. Many travellers choose to do the Camino for personal, rather than any spiritual or religious reasons - taking time out from their busy, modern lives and perhaps finding inspiration along the way, whilst reflecting on their lives in a supportive environment. Many carry with them a Scallop Shell like this. Everyone experiences the journey in a different way.


But, whatever somebody’s journey - whether on El Camino itself, on holiday, a business trip, a gap year, trekking, etc, many friends and loved-ones like to pass on a special gift to wish the recipient well on their travels - and safekeeping along the way. This necklace is perfect for that purpose. In addition to any value that the Camino charm symbol has in itself, or the religious faith that it might represent, this necklace can also act as a REMINDER TO BE CAREFUL when travelling. And this can be a powerful aid to staying safe whilst away from home. Would make a perfect Farewell gift.


Gift this pretty scallop shell necklace to tell your friends and loved-ones that you are thinking of them or that you'll miss them, and to take care . . it's a really meaningful gift. Comes gift-wrapped, like all our presents - and we can add a personal message on your behalf
