Camino shield - to guard Camino de Santiago dreams
Shield of dreams
Help someone to achieve their dream of walking El Camino de Santiago with this unique shield and shell charm necklace, and send them a message to say “Guard your Camino dreams” with this meaningful little gift.
This Camino shield necklace combines the protecting symbols of the Shield with that of the Shell, to help engender faith in positive outcomes:
The Concha Scallop Shell is a symbol of El Camino de Santiago - the famous Way of St James which criss-crosses Europe to arrive in northern Spain at the great Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. The shell is also a symbol of protection, resurrection and salvation.
The Shield is likewise a protector symbol, whether against actual physical harm or, in a symbolic way, against bad things in general and the shattering of hopes and dreams. The so-called "Shield of Faith" is well-known in Christian theology.
Detail: The Camino Shield pendant is made of highly-polished stainless-steel and is 23mm long (32mm including the hanging bail), by 25mm wide. It hangs on a stainless-steel ball chain which measures 50cm (19.5") in length - but it can easily be shortened by clipping the end of the chain where it goes into the open-clasp fitting (see image). The attached scallop shell is a bonded 14ct gold-filled charm.
Choose: There is an OPTION for a SMALLER / SLIM shield (possibly more suitable for Lady / Woman / Girl) (28mm long including the hanging bail), by 19mm wide: This hangs on a fine stainless-steel cable chain which measures 45cm (17.7") in length - with a 5cm (2") extender.
Let this symbolic necklace act as “shield of dreams” for someone who wants to walk El Camino de Santiago.
Could be an ideal little gift to self too, to help keep personal dreams alive :)
