Product Description

Scottish Thistle Antique Wax Seal Earrings – Copper Scotland Earrings

ORIGINS:
These earrings are made using an antique Wax Seal of a Scottish Thistle that dates back to the late 1700′s. The national flower of Scotland, one thistle is said to have saved an entire Scottish army. A sharp, pointy flower, the meaning behind the thistle is “No One Provokes Me With Impunity”.

MEANING:
During the Viking’s invasion of Scotland over one thousand years ago, an enemy warrior advancing on a Scottish army stepped on a thistle and cried out in pain. His cry inadvertently woke the sleeping Scotsmen, saving them from a surprise attack. Grateful for the help of a single flower, Scottish King Kenneth III adopted the thistle as his nation’s emblem. The thistle now is known as a symbol for strength, unity and friendship.

SEAL:
This seal is made out of pure copper, and hand stamped with a wax seal of a Scottish Thistle.

Each seal is stamped, sanded, polished and oxidized for an antique look. Because they are hand-stamped individually and made to order, these seal stampings are truly unique, and no two stampings are the same (unlike those cast from a mold).

The seal is then suspended on copper links and attached to surgical steel earring hooks.

DIMENSIONS: The seal is slightly larger than 1/2″ across. This listing is for the earrings ONLY.
