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. Some 200,000 people travel the Camino 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 life in a supportive environment. Many carry with them a Scallop Shell or St James Cross as featured on these earrings. Everyone experiences the journey in a different way.
Wish your friends or loved-ones well by sending this unusual and meaningful present. It is the ideal gift for any special event / occasion, a friend or loved-one going on a journey, or simply to show someone that you care.
Dimensions: The earrings measure 35mm in length including the sterling silver wires.
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.
