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 from Old fashioned Pewter with a plated finish of Palladium (to prevent scratching or tarnishing) each of these Styles are available in over 125 Clans, and there are over 1,200 Scottish surnames related to these Clans as Septs & Dependants (family names that, through marriage or allegiance, became associated to a particular Clan) If you cannot find an association to a Clan name then why not try our ‘Miscellaneous’ styles – available for all to wear. MADE IN SCOTLAND by Art Pewter, approved by the Standing Council of Scottish Cheifs. Please allow 4 to 6 weeks for delivery.
