Jewellery for a new journey, new start or pilgrimage
Ideal for a woman, lady or young teenage girl starting a new adventure or new beginnings, this traditional shell jewellery is symbolic of one of the greatest journeys in the world - the 1,000-year-old Way of St. James (El Camino de Santiago) which criss-crosses Europe arriving at Santiago de Compostela in Northern Spain on the Atlantic coast. At least 300,000 people travel the Camino every year: Many travellers do the Camino for personal, rather than any spiritual or religious reasons - taking time out from their busy modern lives and finding inspiration along the way, whilst reflecting on their life in a supportive environment.
In addition to any value that these Camino earrings have with regard to religious faith, they could also help bolster mental wellbeing when someone is starting something new, or if they are on the road to good health or recovery.
Everyone experiences a journey in a different way and pilgrim jewellery such as this can act as a constant reminder of aims and goals (including our wellbeing) helping us to be more aware of the things that affect us on a day-to-day basis. So on the journey to good health and mental wellbeing, these shell earrings could be ideal.
Detail: The shell earrings are made of 925 sterling silver and measure approx 6mm x 6mm with a silver post and butterfly end.
The mind can have a strong influence on the body, and in some cases, even help the body heal. This ‘placebo effect’ can be very powerful and is much more than just positive thinking. Studies have shown that symbolic jewellery like this can boost people's confidence, and many people admit there’s power in a thought made positive by a symbolic token - being a constant reminder of purpose and desire.
