Thistle & Bee maintains a longstanding reputation in the design and global manufacture of sterling silver. Established in 1998 to fill a niche for high quality, luxury sterling silver jewelry, Thistle & Bee epitomizes classical elegance, bringing unique design and luxury to the Sterling Silver arena.
"All Thistle & Bee Silver is .925, reflecting the combination 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% copper. While other metals can be used, copper adds the necessary strength without affecting the cool, elegant beauty of silver. All of our Thistle & Bee pieces are stamped with .925 Sterling Silver along with our Thistle & Bee (or T&B) registered trademark.
Over time, our Thistle & Bee jewelry attains a fine patina - the soft, warm glow that appears on the surface of a well worn piece of sterling silver. Even highly polished silver objects develop this deeper beauty over time, and it is one of the reasons that old silver is highly prized among connoisseurs. However, if a bright polish is preferred, a jeweler can restore silver to its original appearance."
