Clan pendant

Clan pendant

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.

Please note these usually have to be ordered in, feel free to email us or leave an enquiry if you have any questions about a particular name.
