In Scotland’s turbulent past it was the custom for Clan Chiefs to give their followers a metal plate of their crest, to be worn as a badge of allegiance which fastened to their clothing with a strap and buckle.
When not in use the belt was coiled around the crest and this convention is used in the clan crest badges of today.
Only a Clan Chief may wear the crest without the strap and buckle.
MADE IN SCOTLAND from Old fashioned Pewter with a plated finish of Palladium which won’t scratch or tarnish.

‘For that is the mark of the Scots of all classes; that he… remembers and cherishes the memory of his forebears… and there burns alive in him a sense of identity with the dead even to the twentieth generation.’
