This is something really unique: Finely crafted by goldsmiths in Asturias, northern Spain, this beautiful gold-plated sterling-silver Camino de Santiago necklace features a scallop shell surrounded by an ornate filigree border.
The scallop shell is symbolic of The Way Of St James - the 1,000-year-old route to Santiago de Compostela, one of the greatest journeys in the world.
Would make an ideal gift for someone setting out on a special journey . . or on a new adventure in their life like a new job, a new beginning, or even getting married or starting retirement.
