Easter is a good occasion to gift something really special and inspirational. But where did the event of Easter come from?

Easter gets its name from Eostre, the great mother goddess of the Saxons of Northern Europe. And, in many cultures, eggs are central to the event of Easter. Eggs used to be associated with spring as a symbol of germination and a new life.

So the custom of giving eggs as presents at Easter time, was incorporated into the Christian event as a way to symbolise Christ’s resurrection. Eggs, often forbidden during Lent, were brought to the dinner tables at the occasion of Easter (dyed red) to symbolise the joy of this celebration.

Product Details

A delicate gift with substantial significance

This exquisite little 18ct gold scallop shell / concha de vieira has been intricately worked by goldsmiths in Galicia, northern Spain, close to the ancient Way of St James. It is symbolic of the Camino de Santiago, and people who love to travel.

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.
