Camino de Santiago necklace + earring set
A gift for inspiration and caring - especially for those on a journey or starting something new
This beautiful sterling-silver Camino jewellery set consists of a scallop shell necklace and matching earrings. (The scallop shell is symbolic of the Camino de Santiago . . and travellers).
The 1,000-year-old pilgrimage to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela is known as the Way of St. James (El Camino de Santiago - in Spanish). Every year, some 200,000 travellers journey along this Camino, by foot or by bike, from all over the world - often seeking inspiration and/or deeper spiritual understanding: Many carry a scallop shell token or keepsake . . which is why the Scallop Shell has become a symbol for travellers - or people setting out on a new journey / starting something new.

The Way of St. James criss-crosses Western Europe, arriving at Santiago through Northern Spain. Modern travellers 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.
