Scallop shell with pearl necklace ~ Santiago, 18ct gold
A delicate gift with substantial significance
This exquisite 18ct gold scallop shell / concha de vieira is hand-crafted by goldsmiths in Galicia, northern Spain, close to the ancient Way of St James. It is symbolic of the Camino de Santiago, and people travelling.
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. At least 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 shaped like this. Everyone experiences the journey in a different way.
