Hawthorn Leaf Necklace
A gorgeous and graceful pewter hawthorn leaf necklace on a Sterling Silver chain.
Jewellery inspired by nature
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 Glastonbury.
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.
Each hawthorn leaf pendant is 5.2 cm (2.1”) high
N.B. The hawthorn leaf pendant comes with a choice of two chain lengths. The default setting is the 18” chain, but if you would prefer a longer necklace, please select the 22” chain in the “chain options” box above.
Each hawthorn leaf necklace is packaged in a black presentation box and an organza pouch.
All Glover and Smith necklaces are made from solid polished lead free pewter which is non-tarnishing (that was the lead in old pewter) and are guaranteed nickel and allergen friendly. We use Sterling silver chain and jump rings for their strength.
Because we use solid metal the surface of your hawthorn necklace will never flake like a silver plated necklace. To clean just wash with warm soapy water and occasionally use a silver cloth on the silver components.
All G&S pewter designs are handmade exclusively by us in Salisbury, Wiltshire.
