Valentine’s Day is the perfect occasion to gift a very personal and meaningful present to the one you love.

Dublin in Ireland is supposed to have a long association with love / romance, and writers such as Yeats and Shaw, drew upon the city’s romanticism to write some of their best lines. And it is in Dublin that you will find the resting place of Saint Valentine, the patron saint of love, in the Carmelite Church on Whitefriar Street.

But of course, the Irish do not hold the monopoly on the meaning of love! Chinese Valentine’s Day is celebrated on the 7th day of the 7th month (in the Chinese calendar) because this is the day that the 7th daughter of the Emperor of Heaven was separated from her orphaned lover. The daughter was forced to move to a star named Vega and the lover moved to the star named Altair. They are only allowed to meet once a year on the 7th day of 7th lunar month. So, on the occasion of Valentine’s Day in China, lovers go to the Matchmaker Temple and pray for their love and happiness and, hopefully marriage.

Another piece of ‘ love folklore ‘ involves the dove. Doves have been thought of as magical birds for centuries and were often used to try and divine the future. If you saw a white dove fly overhead, the event was supposed to be a good omen. If you had a dream about of a dove it was supposed to be a sign that you would be happy. And, when you saw the first dove of spring, you had to make a wish because it was believed that the wish would come true.

A gift from the heart for life's Camino

This lovely sterling-silver and zirconita scallop shell of the Camino de Santiago has a tiny puffed heart nestling behind it. It is representative of a journey, and also symbolic of love or caring.

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. Some 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 like this. Everyone experiences the journey in a different way.

Description: The scallop shell measures 20mm in length including the hanging bail and the lower part of the shell consists of tiny zirconitas that sparkle in the light.

Whatever somebody’s journey - whether on El Camino itself, on holiday, a business trip, a gap year, trekking, etc, many friends and loved-ones like to pass on a special gift to wish the recipient well on their travels - and safekeeping along the way.

This scallop shell with its tiny heart is the perfect present to wish someone a 'buen camino' and a safe journey . . sent with all your love. Comes gift-wrapped, like all our presents - and we can print a personal message on your behalf.
