“Pearls” of Wisdom….

Do you remember that one time your hot, sexy husband gave you pearls?



Well, now you can.

The Administrators of Heughan’s Heughligans are pleased to announce a partnership one year in the making. Together, along with Hamilton & Young, the celebration of our second anniversary continues.
Introducing the OFFICIAL Heughan’s Heughligan’s Outlander inspired Pearl Necklace. THE piece you have all been asking for.


Delicately constructed by H&Y, this beautiful piece of jewelry is inspired by these words in Diana Gabaldon’s novel, “Outlander”:

” … a string of small baroque pearls, those irregularly shaped productions of fresh water mussels, interspersed with tiny pierced-work gold roundels.”

Our necklace contains genuine Baroque Fresh Water Pearls and delicate pierced gold-plated roundels. We feel it is as authentic to the words in the book as it is possible to be.
The necklace is 22” in length – with a short extender at the back to take it to 24”.

It is available on Hamilton & Young’s website right now, at a special launch price of only £32.99 (about $50.00, Euro45.00).

But wait, there’s more! Order with the special code HEUGHANS at the checkout* and not only will 10% of the proceeds go to help fund Youth Theatre Arts Scotland (YTAS), but you will also receive a FREE, matching, gold-plated HH charm to compliment your piece. This is our gift to you for being the BEST FANS in the world. This charm can be worn anyplace on the necklace, or even alone on a chain of your choosing. Please visit Hamilton & Young’s website for more details.


It is absolutely gorgeous front and center, or clipped at the clasp to brush beguilingly along the back of your neck.



What a stunning way to support Sam’s charity of choice and display a piece of exquisite jewelry to showcase your love of Diana’s written word at the same time.

Many thanks to Heughligan, Laken Hamilton, for modeling our first ever jewelry collaboration.


*Code HEUGHANS must be used to trigger the 10% charitable donation and qualify you for the exclusive HH charm. No exceptions.


How to tell her in words, then, what he had learned himself by pain 
and grace? That only by forgiveness could she forget—and that 
forgiveness was not a single act, but a matter of constant practice.

-Jamie in Drums of Autumn, Chapter 48

Diana’s words have touched me in myriad ways, coaxing me to become a better and happier person. Her passages about and deep understanding of the essence of forgiveness are perhaps the most striking examples of this.

Watching this struggle in Jamie provokes such a profound feeling of both hope and peace. If it were easy, it would not be believable and would also seem unattainable.

Happy Halloween

To celebrate Halloween, enjoy some of my favorite spooky/supernatural Outlander series quotes. Do you have favorites that I missed?

“They say I’m a witch,” she said, widening her brilliant eyes in feigned astonishment. She grinned. “But my husband’s the procurator fiscal for the district, so they don’t say it too loud.”
—Geillis Duncan in Outlander, Chapter 9

Some say the hill is enchanted, others say it is cursed. Both are right.
—Claire in Dragonfly in Amber, Prologue

“Witch I am. Witch, and I curse you.”
“I curse you with knowledge, Jack Randall- I give you the hour of your death.”
—Claire in Outlander, Chapter 35

“The White Lady,” he murmured. “She is called a wisewoman, a healer. And yet… she sees to the center of a man, and can turn his soul to ashes, if evil be found there.”
—Magnus the Butler in Dragonfly in Amber, Chapter 20

A very important message from H&Y and Heughan’s Heughligans…


Due to a possible quality issue with our Hamilton & Young collaboration, all orders are currently suspended. If you have placed an order prior to today, you will still be receiving your item.

At this time this issue has only impacted 1 (one) necklace, but Gordon and June Young are taking steps to proactively address the issue.

The Youngs are working hard to rectify this situation and as soon as the problem is identified and resolved, the Outlander-inspired pearl necklace will be available for purchase again. We appreciate their all of their hard work and dedication to bringing Outlander fans worldwide the very best product possible.


A personal message from Gordon & June Young to all Heughan’s Heughligans:

“June has been wearing one of our new Pearl Necklaces for a while now, and we’ve identified that there could be a possible quality issue with some of the gold beads that could lead to a bead falling off. Our first thoughts are always for the fans….we never want any fan to be disappointed or to receive products that are not of the finest quality. So, until we’ve clarified and resolved this matter fully, we have unfortunately had to suspend all ordering and have taken it offline. If you have already ordered one and receive your necklace and are in any way not happy with it, please email me and we will instantly arrange a full refund. I have shown my personal email address below – please feel free to contact me about this issue if you have any queries. We’re very sorry for any inconvenience this is causing, but we are so very keen that none of you are disappointed. Kindest regards. Gordon & June”
