This necklace is symbolic of El Camino de Santiago (the 1,000-year-old pilgrimage to the shrine of St. James in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela) and it makes a lovely piece of jewellery with meaning. Some 200,000 pilgrims travel the Way of St James each year from all over the world, and many carry with them a St James cross symbol like this.The addition of the Guardian Angel charm further adds to the significance of this necklace as a piece of protection jewellery intended to pass on wishes of care and safety - especially for travellers. 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. And this can be a powerful aid to staying safe whilst travelling away from home..
Wish your friends or loved-ones well by sending them this meaningful present. It could be the ideal gift for a special event / occasion, or for someone setting out on a new journey or new adventure, or simply as a gift of faith and to show someone that you really care about them and are concerned for their wellbeing.

The Way of St. James criss-crosses Western Europe, arriving at Santiago through Northern Spain. It is generally regarded as a journey of the body, mind and spirit. 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.
