Thistle Cameo Necklace (large)


Product Information

The thistle sybolizes bravery, courage, and loyalty in the face of treachery and is the perfect gift for those with Scottish ancestry or fans of the Outlander series. The size of the cameo is approximately 1-3/4" x 2-1/4". The necklace is a 24 inch silver plated rolo chain

This humble little flower was adopted as the Emblem of Scotland during the rein of Alexander III (1249 -1286). Legend has it that an Army of King Haakon of Norway, intent on conquering the Scots landed at the Coast of Largs at night to surprise the sleeping Scottish Clansmen. In order to move more stealthily under the cover of darkness the Norsemen removed their footwear. As they drew near to the Scots it wasn't the only thing hiding under the cover of darkness. For one of Haakon's men unfortunately stood on one of these spiny little defenders and shrieked out in pain, alerting the Clansmen of the advancing Norsemen. Needless to say the Scots who won that day were grateful to the thistle!
