St James cross / cruz de Santiago necklace ~ 18ct gold
An exquisite and delightful gift of faith for strength and hope
This little 18ct gold cross is the Cross of St James (Cruz de Santiago). It is handmade by goldsmiths in Galicia, Spain, and is a truly graceful and fine piece of jewellery. 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). Over 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 St James's Cross - believed to promote strength and hope: “La Cruz de Santiago es un símbolo que favorece el coraje y la esperanza ante las dificultades”

In Xacobeo 2010 - a Holy Year (Año Santo) in Spain because the Feast of St James (on 25th July) fell on a Sunday, over 272,000 pilgrims completed the final 100 km walk to Santiago and qualified for the 'Compostela' or certificate. The Way of St. James criss-crosses Western Europe, arriving at Santiago through Northern Spain. It is generally regarded as a journey of the body, mind and spirit. Modern pilgrims choose to do the Camino for personal, spiritual and/or religious reasons - or simply to take time out from their busy, modern lives. For many, the walk is to find inspiration - improving their outlook on life, bringing them into closer contact with nature and expanding their cultural horizons through contact with other pilgrims. Everyone experiences the journey in a different way.
Gift this truly special St. James Cross to inspire your friends and loved-ones and help them to be resolute and feel safe in their life. Would make a very special present for a Christening, a Wedding, or an inspirational Easter gift. Comes gift-wrapped, like all our presents - and we can print a personal message on your behalf.
