What makes a truly meaningful Mothers Day present?

Throughout the world, Mother’s Day is seen as an occasion to give a present to someone special in our lives – someone we truly (and instinctively) care about. It can be the event to gift something a bit more inspirational and meaningful than usual.

It is believed that the Sunday of mid-Lent (towards the end of March) was a day on which, in the past, offerings were made at the high altar of the ‘Mother-church’. Derived from this, began the tradition whereby sons and daughters made visits to their parents – and especially to see their mother, so it became known as “Mothering Sunday.” Indeed, for many years, this special Sunday was reserved so that children and young people living away from their parents could go home for the occasion, taking presents such a cake for their mother, and sharing a meal with their family. This day was particularly meaningful for apprentices, live-in farm-workers, and girls in service, and it was generally accepted that they had the right to have the day off.

Product Details

. . a beautiful gift to pass on wishes of safekeeping

Hand-crafted by specialist silversmiths in Galicia, northern Spain, this sweet little sterling-silver and enamel Guardian Angel charm bears a tiny scallop shell of the Camino de Santiago. The combination of the little Guardian Angel and the Concha de Vieira shell is indicative of both protection and guidance: As a gift to a friend or loved-one, the Angel symbolises a wish to have someone watch over them: The little scallop shell symbolises a journey: PLUS, on the back of this unique and inspiring piece of jewellery, is an engraved Tau Cross of St Francis - the symbol of pilgrims, or people "on a mission" or a journey.

In Spain, some 150,000 people travel to Santiago de Compostela every year from all over the world to find inspiration and/or deeper spiritual understanding. Many carry with them a scallop shell of the Way of St James, a Tau cross, or some other symbol of personal significance like the St James Cross. This necklace (hand-crafted in A Coruña, Galicia, northern Spain) has similar significance.

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.

This sweet guardian angel necklace with its tiny scallop shell and Tau cross, really IS a piece of jewellery with meaning, and is the perfect present to wish someone a 'buen camino' / safe journey . Comes gift-wrapped, like all our presents - and we can print a personal message on your behalf.
