A unique piece of jewellery as a gift of faith, especially for travellers

This sterling silver necklace bears the symbolic scallop shell of the Camino de Santiago and nestling behind it is a little sterling-silver cross. 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). Some 200,000 pilgrims travel to the city each year from all over the world to find inspiration and/or deeper spiritual understanding. Many carry with them a scallop shell or cross.

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 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. 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 charm symbols have in themselves, or the religious faith that they 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.

This scallop shell necklace with its tiny cross is the perfect present to wish someone a 'buen camino' and a safe journey . . especially when setting off on a new venture, and a great farewell or goodbye present with spiritual significance. Comes gift-wrapped, like all our presents - and we can print a personal message on your behalf.
