Scallop shell earrings with St James cross for safekeeping
A beautiful and delicate gift to promote strength, hope and safekeeping
These delightful sterling-silver scallop-shell earrings contain a tiny Cross of St James (Cruz de Santiago) - symbolic of one of the great journeys of the world - the Way of St. James (El Camino de Santiago - in Spanish).
The route 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 life in a supportive environment. Many carry with them a Scallop Shell or St James Cross. 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, (or perhaps merely the "journey" through life in general), 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. These earrings are perfect for that purpose. In addition to any value that the Camino charm symbols have in themselves, or the religious faith that they might represent, these earrings 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..
Dimensions: The earrings measure 36mm in length including the sterling silver wires.
Beautiful and delicate jewellery with real meaning - handcrafted in the silver workshops of Galicia, northern Spain. These earrings would make an ideal gift for a lady / girl to show that you really care. Lovely Christmas present too, with Christian significance, or Wedding Day gift. They come gift-wrapped, like all our presents - and we can print a personal message on your behalf.
