Scallop shell necklace / concha de vieira ~ 18ct gold
A truly striking piece of gold jewellery with meaning
This is something very special indeed: This exquisite, solid, 18ct gold scallop shell / concha de vieira necklace would make a truly unforgettable gift. It has been lovingly hand-crafted by goldsmiths in Galicia, northwest Spain. The shell is the symbol of the Camino de Santiago - the 1,000-year-old pilgrimage to the shrine of St. James in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, also known as the Way of St. James (El Camino de Santiago - in Spanish), and so the necklace has considerable significance and gravitas.
"El Camino" 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 symbol as depicted here. Everyone experiences the journey in a different way.
