The Ultimate Guide to Choosing a Saint Christopher Necklace: A Gift for Safe Travels

Dog Tag Silver Saint Christopher For Safe Travels

When it comes to travel gifts for loved ones embarking on adventures, few things hold more meaning than a Saint Christopher necklace.

Here at Off The Map Jewellery, based down by the sea in Brighton, England, we understand the importance of finding the perfect piece to symbolise protection and safe travels.

This quick guide will equip you with everything you need to know about Saint Christopher necklaces, from their rich history and symbolism to choosing the ideal design for your recipient.

The Story of Saint Christopher: A Symbol of Strength and Guidance

Saint Christopher, revered as the patron saint of travellers, is said to have carried a child across a dangerous river. The child, who later revealed himself as Jesus Christ, grew heavier with each step, representing the weight of the world.

This powerful story embodies Saint Christopher's strength, devotion, and his role as a guide for those on their journeys.

The traditional Saint Christopher necklace depicts the saint carrying Christ on his shoulders. However, our unique and modern interpretations offer a wider variety of styles to suit any taste and we also have the first non-religous versions completely unique to Off The Map.

Here are some of the most popular choices:

• Traditional Saint Christopher Pendants: Crafted from sterling silver or gold, these pendants feature the iconic image of Saint Christopher.  We have many different styles from matte, polished to oxidised finishes and in different shapes and sizes.

• Compass Necklaces: Our original 'Travel Safe - Adventure Awaits' compass necklaces are by far the most popular, inspiring safe travels without the religious aspect.  Designed and hand finished in our Brighton workshop with custom engraving on the back, they are a best seller on both our Etsy and Not On The High Street stores.

• Rune Necklaces: There's a touch of Viking in most of us, and our unique Rune neckaces are filled with luck and protection symbols to inspire safe journeys.

More Than Just Protection: The Benefits of Gifting a Saint Christopher Necklace

A Saint Christopher necklace is a tangible reminder of your love and support for your loved ones as they embark on their journey, wether it be overseas or just the journey through life. It offers:

- Protection: The symbol of Saint Christopher provides a sense of security and safe passage.

- Encouragement: It serves as a constant reminder of your faith in their ability to navigate the world.

- A Lasting Keepsake: This thoughtful gift will be cherished long after the journey ends.

- A Chance To Make It Yours: Our free engraving service means you can add a truly personal message on the back of most of our designs.  

Choosing the Right Size and Style: Finding the Perfect Fit

When selecting a Saint Christopher necklace, consider the recipient's age and personal style - we have all sorts of shapes and metals to choose from to suit everyone's tastes:

- For Younger Travellers: A smaller, more delicate pendant might be ideal, or a skinny dog tag that's light in weight and can be worn under a T-shirt or sweatshirt.

- For Men: We have Saint Christopher designs up to 27mm wide for those that prefer a statement piece with real weight to it.  Our most popular sizes are the 20mm pendants and our celtic, Storm Guardian and Rune necklaces which measure around 25mm wide

- Consider Their Taste: Do they prefer classic or contemporary styles?   With compasses to runes, in silver or even solid gold, there's something for all tastes and budgets.

Making It Personal - Our Free Engraving Service

Engraving on a St. Christopher has long been a tradition that we love to be involved in.  Sending someone a gift with a discreet and personal message permanently etched makes it all the more magic.

We have a wide choice of fonts for you to choose from, and most of our St Christopher necklaces come in a choice of finish from matte to oxidised to make it truly unique.  We can even accomodate custom fonts, rune symbols and our on-screen previewing apps allow you to lay it out exactly as you want it.
