These small Scottish thistle earrings are crafted with nickel-free sterling silver and are made for pierced ears. According to a legend, the thistle became the national emblem of Scotland when one night an invading Norse army was attempting to sneak up on a Scottish army's campt. During this operation, a barefoot Norseman made the mistake of stepping on a thistle, causing him to shout a curse of pain and thus alerting the Scots to the Norse invaders.
