Product Details

A unique gift with special meaning for a man (or boy) - hand-crafted by artisans in northern Spain

These exquisitely-carved Azabache Jet and sterling-silver cufflinks are in the form of the Concha de Vieira scallop shell of El Camino de Santiago which runs through Asturias in north Spain (where these cufflinks were fashioned) into Galicia and on to Santiago de Compostela (the 'field of stars').

It is said that "Jet purifies and protects", and in Spain it is known as "la piedra mágica" (the magic stone). It originates from the Jurassic period on earth, some 65 million years ago, in the forests of the northern hemisphere - particularly in northern Europe, and jewellery featuring Jet (Azabache in Spanish) makes an ideal gift for someone starting a new phase in their life: Jet jewellery is said to offer protection and good fortune, and neutralise negative energy to help protect people from fear and indecision. Azabache is quite difficult to carve, and specialst Azabacheros and "grabadores compostelanos" (who have trained over generations in northern-eastern Spain) have made these delightful cufflinks.

Pilgrims and other visitors to Santiago de Compostela especially like these cufflinks as a souvenir. Do you want to encourage a friend or loved-one along their spiritual journey through life, or give them something as a reminder of their goals and achievements? Let us send these exquisite sterling silver and Azabache scallop shell cufflinks on your behalf to show them how much you care.

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. Some 200,000 people travel the Camino 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 life in a supportive environment. Many carry with them a Scallop Shell symbol like the ones on these cufflinks. Everyone experiences the journey in a different way.

Description: These special sterling-silver and black jet cufflinks are in the shape of the scallop shell / concha de vieira, the symbol of the Camino de Santiago. Shell measures approx 13 x 13mm and the cufflinks close with a hinge.
