The Pilgrim Shell Scallop Pendant is the perfect gift for someone going on a pilgrimage (or for yourself if you’re about to go on a pilgrimage). Celebrating St. James the Greater as well as the great tradition of pilgrimage in Christian history, this tasteful and petite pendant will serve as a reminder of the unbroken link the pilgrim shares with the generations of pilgrims in Christian history. At 1 inch in size, this scallop shell pilgrimage pendant is made entirely of polished bronze, radiant with the joy and excitement that suffuses a new journey.
A Perfect Pilgrimage Gift
One of the most important aspects of a pilgrimage is actually remaining in the right state of heart and mind once you’re there. It’s so easy to get swept up in the practicalities of travel, the mass of humanity, and the mundane questions of day-to-day living in an unfamiliar place, that you can be easily shaken from your spiritual goals. That’s why having something as simple as a pendant that is a symbolic reminder of your purpose and of your connection with the generations of pilgrims that come before you can be exactly what you need to cultivate spiritual growth on your pilgrimage. Much more than a souvenir if your pilgrimage, the Pilgrim Shell Scallop pendant can be an important part of the spiritual goals of your pilgrimage.
