|Irish Blossom Brooch|
The Three Thistle Brooch was confirmed to be part of a set of four pins from The Sultan, and I can't help but notice the common golden and diamond design characteristics, though the Three Thistle did not appear until a few years later (see that entry for more details). Nothing has been confirmed, and that is all mere speculation.
