In the language of flowers, the thistle is an ancient Celtic symbol of
nobility of character as well as of birth, for the wounding or
provocation of a thistle yields punishment. Ours is crafted in sterling
silver in the form of a brooch.
According to a legend, an invading Norse army was attempting to sneak up at night upon a Scottish army's
encampment. During this operation, one barefoot Norseman had the
misfortune to step upon a thistle, causing him to cry out in pain, thus
alerting the Scots to the presence of the Norse invaders.
