So simple and such a statement - our tiny scallop sea shell is a sweet eye catching piece for all seasons. The gold filled pendant and shell pair beautifully with the colorful inlay.
A positive reminder of the abundance of beauty and gifts life and nature offer us, sea shells are the perfect accessory, like little jewelry that washes ashore. Also a symbol of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of goodness, love and beauty, who was born of the sea.
Another interesting anecdote: for centuries, the scallop shell, which is typically found on the sea coast in Galicia, northern Spain, has been the symbol of the Camino de Santiago, and its pilgrims – los peregrinos. Pilgrims returned to their countries of origin wearing the scallop concha shell over their habit or hat to demonstrate that they had reached Santiago and its famous gothic cathedral. The scallop shell is a metaphor with its lines representing the different routes pilgrims travel from all over the world, all walking trails leading to one point: the tomb of Saint James in Santiago de Compostela.
