It’s just over a week until Mother’s Day so here are some ideas to make the day extra special!

Give your Mum a gift with a regal touch inspired by our rich history: pendants and earrings that resemble Mary Queen of Scots’ Renaissance jewellery and afternoon tea in the remarkable Edinburgh Castle. The Edinburgh Castle Tearoom is the perfect place to indulge in sumptuous sandwiches and cakes! Gift vouchers are also available.

Mary Queen of Scots’ jewellery was usually made from yellow gold, lavishly decorated with soft enamels, diamonds, coloured gems and white pearls. Make sure your Mum keeps up with the Scottish nobility and European fashions.

Here are some of her favourites:
