A gorgeous and graceful pewter hawthorn leaf necklace on a Sterling Silver chain.
A great present 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 a cast of a leaf from the Holy Hawthorn tree in Glastonbury.
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.
