Amethyst (February Birthstone) 9ct Yellow Gold Thistle Earrings CE8g, Handmade by Ortak of Scotland


  • £16800

The tough but beautiful thistle is rendered here as a lovely set of 9CT gold earrings with a bright purple amethyst in the center. The gold is the perfect compliment to the stone’s lavender hue.

The national flower of Scotland, the thistle is a representation of strength and resilience. Although these earrings are delicate, their symbol is powerful.

Give this pair to those that love history and legend. Amethyst is also the February birthstone, making these the perfect gift for loved ones born in that month.

Anna (Creative Director) says,
“The shine of the gold and the brilliant purple stone make a bold statement. Wear these earrings with minimal other jewellery for optimum impact. When asked about them, as you surely will be, you can recount some traditional Scottish lore!”
