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.

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.

:)- Gift-Wrapped

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.
