The thistle is a widely recognized symbol of Scotland and holds special significance in Scottish culture. Its origins as a symbol are said to date back to a historical event involving a surprise Norse attack on a group of Scottish warriors.

According to legend, in the 13th century during the reign of Alexander III, a group of Norse invaders attempted to infiltrate a Scottish camp at night. One of the attackers stepped on a thistle, which caused a commotion and alerted the Scots to the presence of the enemy. The Scots successfully repelled the attack, and the thistle thereafter became a symbol of Scotland's resilience and vigilance.

These sterling silver Scottish Thistle stud earrings measuring 10mm x 8mm are imported straight from Scotland. Ships from the US the next business day.
