This neat little necklace resembles an item of jewellery but is in fact a tiny Whistle. It hangs on a 60cm (24inch) sterling-silver belcher chain attached to a 925 sterling-silver bail that features a tiny heart shape on one side, and the ribs of a shell on the other.
The Whistle itself is made of steel and measures 46mm in length including the hanging bail, by 7mm in diameter. Although small in size, the whistle is quite loud and piercing. It is discreetly engraved with the Travellers Cross symbol of St James (placed within the Scallop Shell symbol of El Camino de Santiago, one of the greatest journeys in the world).
It hangs on a 60cm (24") sterling-silver belcher chain.

Symbolism and practicality:
This Travellers Cross Safety Whistle would make a great travelling gift, especially for someone with Christian or Catholic beliefs as a present with a spiritual / religious / Christian significance. But, in addition to any value that the Camino / St James charm symbol has in itself, or the religious faith that it might represent, this Travellers Whistle could also be used in an emergency situation to summon help.
