Camino de Santiago necklace ~ gold vermeil
A gift for inspiration and caring - especially for those on a journey or starting something new
This beautiful gold vermeil scallop shell necklace (concha de vieira) represents the symbol of the Camino de Santiago.
The 1,000-year-old pilgrimage to 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.

It is the ideal gift for any special event / occasion, particularly for someone starting out on a new adventure in life - like a new job, travelling afar or even beginning retirement.
Dimensions: The scallop shell pendant measures 15mm in length (20mm including the hanging bail) by 13mm in width. It is made of 24ct gold-plated sterling silver (gold vermeil) and hangs on a fine 16" gold-filled trace chain. 18"option is also available (choose in Option Box).
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.
Gift this lovely scallop shell necklace to inspire a good friend or loved-one. A truly meaningful gift. Comes gift-wrapped, like all our presents - and we can print a personal message on your behalf.
