ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: England has its rose, Wales its daffodil, Ireland its shamrock, and Scotland has its purple flowered thistle. These thistles are found everywhere throughout Scotland: in the countryside, in parks, in gardens, on the grounds of football and rugby venues, as logos for local and major businesses, social and professional organizations, and even on the uniforms of police officers.
The Scottish Thistle has been an important national symbol since the early 15th century. It first appeared on Scottish currency in 1470AD and in 1687AD, King James commissioned the Most Noble Order Of The Thistle to honor the nation’s citizens for their outstanding achievements in the service of the country. This honor is much like the Most Noble Order Of The Garter given by Queen Elizabeth for outstanding service to the entire kingdom of Great Britain.
To the ancient Celt, the heart represents the center of life as it symbolizes the spiritual, emotional and moral core of being human. The heart was among the most romantic symbols representing the union of two individuals during their eternal journey of life; the continued faith and love between sweethearts. Poets have used it when referring to the soul.
By gifting this beautiful solid Celtic .925 sterling silver pendant to that special soul-mate in your life, you are enhancing the bond that unites you both as one.
