Our classic clan crest plaid brooch. This is a traditionally sized, finest quality 3" Clan Crest Plaid Brooch with 4 stones set around the clan crest of your choice.
We have six stone colours to choose from, which are Ruby Red, Sapphire Blue, Topaz Orange, Emerald Green, Onyx Black and Amethyst Purple. Pick your favourite colour, or match to compliment your tartan.
Features cutouts around the crest to accent the tartan below and slightly domed to allow material behind, and to emphasise the crest.
Take your pick from the widest selection of Clan Crests available, with over 240 Highland, Lowland and Borders names. Our crests are founded on the third edition of the Scottish Clan and Family Encyclopaedia, by Romilly Squire and George Way of Plean, the authoritative text on Scottish crests, which is endorsed by the Lord Lyon King of Arms.
When used with a fly plaid, plaid brooches are attached to the dangling portion at the front to act as weights to keep the plaid in place. It’s best not to pin them to the jacket as well (in case the plaid gets snagged on anything). These also make good general wear brooches, and suit a variety of occasions.
Completely designed, cast and finished in our workshops in Glasgow, Scotland. Cast from high quality 100% lead free pewter.
These measure 76mm or 3'' in diameter.
