No doubt, this pendant will be downright irresistible to anyone with a Scottish heritage. Can you imagine anything more perfect! The sparkling faceted amethyst gemstone adds just a touch of purple to the mix, mimicking the vibrant hues of an actual thistle flower.
Have you ever wondered how such a prickly bloom came to be the national symbol of Scotland? Legends tell of Viking invaders who were creeping up on a Scottish encampment. Fortunately for the Scots, one of the invaders stepped on a thistle in the dark. His cries of pain alerted the Scots to the threat. The Scots won the battle, and thus the thistle became the floral emblem of Scotland.
Thankfully, this amethyst thistle pendant has all the Scottish bloom's beauty, and none of its bite!
The Amethyst Thistle Pendant is made of sterling silver, set with a genuine amethyst gemstone. It measures 1 1/4" tall, including the bail, and it comes with an 18" sterling silver chain.
I love this pendant, but I'm not Scottish Go for it! Seriously, there are no rules when it comes to jewelry. If you love it, and it makes you happy, then it was meant for you. Period. End of story.
Would this pendant make a good gift? Absolutely! Pendants are one of the easiest jewelry gifts you can give. Ring sizes can be hard to guess, and you may not know if their ears are pierced. But pendants? They're always in style! Perfect for anyone with Scottish ancestry. Or anyone who loves the color purple. Also, people born in February (amethyst is their birthstone). Or... well, anyone really!
