Scallop shell earrings to wish safekeeping, especially for travellers
These really pretty and delicate scallop shells (concha de vieira) represent the symbol of the 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 (El Camino de Santiago - in Spanish), and it is a renowned journey and adventure, as well as being a pilgrimage for some people of the Christian faith.

If you want to wish your friends or colleagues well and show them how much you care (especially for someone travelling), let us send this meaningful present on your behalf. It is the ideal gift for any special event / occasion, particularly for someone starting out on a new adventure in life - like a new job, travelling afar or even beginning retirement.
Dimensions: These beautiful little 14ct Gold-Filled Camino earrings feature a dainty double scallop shell which measures 17mm in length (including the hanging ring) by 12mm in width. They hang on 14ct Gold-Filled 14mm earwires.
Is Gold-Filled the same as Gold-Plated / Vermeil?
No, it is much better: Gold-Filled is a layer of solid gold, pressure-bonded into another metal. Whereas Gold-Plating is a very thin layer of gold that is 'plated' onto the surface of a metal. (Vermeil just means that the plated item is made of silver: Nothing more; it is still just Gold-Plated.) So, Gold-Filled has a much higher value than simple Gold-Plating or Vermeil because it contains a much greater quantity of gold; and is of higher quality because of the way that gold is included: Once termed “Rolled-Gold” it has a long history - although the modern process wasn't patented until Victorian times in England. It is much more precious and tarnish-resistant than Gold-Plated / Vermeil: It does not rub off or flake or change colour.
The 1,000-year-old Way of St. James (El Camino de Santiago - in Spanish), criss-crosses Western Europe, arriving at Santiago de Compostela in Northern Spain on the Atlantic coast. At least 200,000 people travel to the city each year from all over the world: Some people walk, others travel by bike. Many travellers choose to do the Camino for personal, rather than any spiritual or religious reasons - taking time out from their busy, modern lives and perhaps finding inspiration along the way, whilst reflecting on their lives in a supportive environment. Many carry with them a Scallop shell symbol like this. Everyone experiences the journey in a different way.
But, whatever somebody’s journey - whether on El Camino itself, on holiday, a business trip, a gap year, trekking, etc, many friends and loved-ones like to pass on a special gift to wish the recipient well on their travels - and safekeeping along the way. These earrings are perfect for that purpose. In addition to any value that the Camino charm symbol has in itself, or the religious faith that it might represent, these earrings can also act as a reminder to be careful when travelling. And this can be a powerful aid to staying safe whilst away from home. Would make a perfect farewell gift.
Gift these pretty little scallop shell earrings to tell your friends and loved-ones that you are thinking of them or that you'll miss them, and to take care . . it's a really meaningful gift. Comes gift-wrapped, like all our presents - and we can print a personal message on your behalf.
