Hawthorn Leaf Necklace
A gorgeous and graceful hawthorn leaf necklace on a Sterling Silver chain.
Great presents for that special someone
The Hawthorn is a symbol of protection due to its sharp thorns. It is also seen as a tree that brings good luck and prosperity to the owner.
It looks great with our matching hawthorn leaf earrings or why not combine with our hawthorn cufflinks to make an ideal wedding gift for a bride and groom.
Our hawthorn leaf is taken from the Holy Hawthorn tree in the grounds of Glastonbury Abbey
Did you know...
Probably the best known association with the hawthorn is the legend of the Holy Grail. Joseph of Arimathea was a tin merchant who traded with miners on the west coast of Britain. On one of his journeys he brought along his nephew, the boy Jesus and together they made a pilgrimage to the Holy Isle of Avalon. Years later, it's said that he returned to Avalon bringing the Holy Grail with him. When he stepped ashore, he planted his staff in the ground where it took root and blossomed into a hawthorn tree, known today as the Glastonbury Thorn or Holy Hawthorn.
The Glastonbury Thorn was noteworthy because it flowered twice in a year, once in the late Spring which is normal, but also once after the harshness of midwinter has passed.
The hawthorn leaf pendant is 5.2cm (2.1”) high and you can choose either an 18” or 22” Sterling Silver chain.
The necklace is packaged in a black presentation box and an organza bag.
All our designs are made from solid polished lead free pewter which is non-tarnishing (that was the lead) and are guaranteed nickel and allergen free. We use Sterling Silver chain for its strength.
Because we use solid metal the surface of your hawthorn necklace will never rust or flake. To clean, just wash with warm soapy water and occasionally use a silver cloth on the silver components.
