A truly striking piece of gold jewellery with meaning
This exclusive 18ct gold scallop shell / concha de vieira pendant / necklace is something really special - hand-crafted by goldsmiths in Galicia, northern Spain (cerca de la ruta del Camino de Santiago). 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).
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. Everyone experiences the journey in a different way.
