This delicate but spectacular 18ct gold shell necklace features two conchas de vieira - or scallop shells. This is the symbol of the Way of St James in Spain and in fact, one of the shells features a tiny St James the Apostle / Apóstol Santiago, while the other has a little cross of St James / cruz de Santiago inside.
Hand-crafted by a family of Goldsmiths in A Coruña, northern Spain.
Dimensions: This fine 18ct gold double shell measures 10mm long x 10mm wide, or 15mm total length including the hanging ring, and is presented on an 18" 18ct gold curb chain.
A really special piece of jewellery with true significance: Friends or loved-ones would really appreciate this beautiful necklace.
