    Rose and Thistle Brooch

    A stunning statement Rose and Thistle brooch, inspired by the Elizabeth and Mary: Royal Cousins, Rival Queens exhibition. Created by hand in Bristol by independent jewellery designer Rosa Pietsch, the brooch combines different materials and textures to give a unique finish. Presented in a branded box.

    The Tudor rose (sometimes called the Union rose) is the traditional floral heraldic emblem of England and takes its name and origins from the House of Tudor, which united the House of Lancaster and the House of York. 

    Common throughout the highlands, islands and lowlands of Scotland, the prickly thistle has been Scotland’s national emblem for over 500 years.

    Rosa Pietsch creates strikingly original jewellery designs that mix materials, textures and processes, with every piece lovingly crafted by hand in Bristol, UK. Having developed her own design techniques, Rosa combines laser-cutting technology with handmade and hand-finished processes, resulting in pieces that are truly unique.

    Rosa worked with the British Library to create an exclusive collection inspired by the Elizabeth and Mary: Royal Cousins, Rival Queens exhibition, including this brooch, two pairs of earrings, and a bib necklace.

    Part of the Elizabeth and Mary: Royal Cousins, Rival Queens exhibition range.
