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 unique jewellery gift with meaning

These beautiful sterling-silver scallop shell and turquoise earrings make a unique and eye-catching gift. The shell shape is symbolic of El Camino de Santiago (the 1,000-year-old route to the great Cathedral city of Santiago de Compostela) and, along with the addition of the real turquoise gems, they make a truly stunning piece of jewellery with meaning. Some 200,000 travellers journey along the Way of St James each year from all over the world, and many carry with them a scallop shell symbol like the ones in these earrings. And Turquoise is also said to be a lucky stone, and supposedly a stone of happiness (partly because it is historically a symbol of love).

Wish your friends and loved-ones well by sending them this beautiful and meaningful present. It could make the ideal gift for any special event / occasion. Turquoise has been prized for thousands of years and is said to have a calming effect and to be a stone of protection. As the modern birthstone for December, it would make an ideal Christmas gift for people born December 23 and January 20.

Dimensions: The earrings measure approx 58mm in length including the sterling silver wires. They consist of turquoise gemstones, silver-coated washers and sterling silver scallop shells and earwires.

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. At least 200,000 people travel to the city 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 lives in a supportive environment. Many carry with them a Scallop shell symbol like this. Everyone experiences the journey in a different way.

Gift these delightful scallop and turquoise earrings to inspire your friends. They come gift-wrapped, like all our presents - and we can print a personal message on your behalf.
