Camino de Santiago scallop shell necklace ~ gold-plated
Hand-crafted by silversmiths in Galicia, close to Santiago de Compostela on the northern Iberian peninsular, this pretty gold-plated sterling-silver scallop shell necklace (concha de vieira) is representative of one of the greatest journeys in the world: El Camino de Santiago. The 1,000-year-old route to the great Cathedral city of Santiago de Compostela is known as the Way of St. James, and this Camino de Santiago necklace has great significance for travellers.
It would be ideal for someone going on a journey or even starting out on a new adventure in life - like a new job, for example.
The gold-plated silver scallop shell measures 22mm in length (including the hanging ring) by 17mm in width and is hung on a16" gold plated rope chain.
Whatever somebody’s journey - whether on El Camino itself, on holiday, a business trip, a gap year, trekking, etc, this necklace says “Have a good trip” on your travels - and safekeeping along the way.
The Scallop Shell of El Camino is representative of a journey - whether a real trip or a metaphorical adventure
