A gift of faith to promote good health and wellness
Countless people put their trust in a symbol of faith at times of crisis to help give themselves a feeling of well being.
This Health-Shield protection necklace combines the protecting symbols of the Shield with that of the Shell, to help engender faith in good health:
The Shell is a symbol of birth, resurrection . . and protection. In addition, in Christianity, this Scallop Shell is also the symbol of salvation (as witnessed by its ceremonial use in Baptism) and, of course, is worn by pilgrims to Santiago de Compostela northern Spain.
The Shield is likewise a protector symbol, whether against actual physical harm, or for protection against bad things in general (in a symbolic way), and the so-called "Shield of Faith" is well-known in Christian theology.
Detail: The shield pendant is made of highly-polished stainless-steel and is 28mm long (including the hanging bail), by 19mm wide. It hangs on a fine stainless-steel cable chain which measures 45cm (17.7") in length - with a 5cm (2") extender. The attached scallop shell is a bonded 14ct gold-filled charm.
Choose: There is an OPTION for a WIDER shield (possibly more suitable for a Man) which 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).
Ideal gift to self or to wish a friend / loved-one good health and inspire them to stay healthy every day.
