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.

A golden gift for life's Camino

Handcrafted by goldsmiths in Asturias, northern Spain, this gold-plated sterling-silver open cross bears the symbolic scallop shell of the Camino de Santiago.

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. 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 as depicted on this cross. Everyone experiences the journey in a different way.

Description: The cross measures 34mm in length including the hanging ring by 15mm wide and hangs on an attractive 17.5" (44mm) double waxed cord that fastens with a gold-plated bolt ring.

But, whatever somebody’s journey - whether on El Camino itself, on holiday, a business trip, a gap year, trekking, etc, many friends and loved-ones like to pass on a special gift to wish the recipient well on their travels - and safekeeping along the way.

This scallop shell cross is the perfect present to wish someone a 'buen camino' / safe journey . . sent with all your love. Comes gift-wrapped, like all our presents - and we can print a personal message on your behalf.
