Browse Women's Celtic Brooches - Traditional and Contemporary Design

 

The brooch has been a part of Scottish and Irish clothing since the Middle Ages. Once used for clasping shut a great kilt, cloak, shawl or ruana, now they are used both functionally and purely for decoration. The same brooch you wear with your wedding day tartan sash can be worn on a jacket lapel or to close your knit shawl on a windy autumn day. The authentic Celtic beauty works with so many outfits.  

 

We are pleased to offer high-quality pewter brooches from artisans in Scotland, Ireland and here in the USA. Each is quite durable with exquisite detail. Choose from traditional designs such as the Lukenbooth or Claddagh or more contemporary celtic knotwork patterns set with beautiful cabochon stones. We even offer the heraldic crests of every County of Ireland (use our tartan finder to see which county your name appears in!).

Celtic brooches such as Irish Claddagh brooches, moon brooches, Scottish thistle brooches and the like all evolved from the ancient penannular brooch or cloak pin which had been used by both men and women since Roman times. Celtic styles first developed by the pagan tribes and druid cultures quickly became quite unique in their use of precious metals such as gold and silver set with semi-precious tones and glass enamel. Later on, Scandinavian Viking raiders and settlers brought their own take on the art to the British Isles. Great examples of the art can be found in grave finds dating anywhere from 100AD to 1300AD and the iconic Celtic knotwork can also be seen in artworks such as the Book of Kells and stone Christian crosses in Ireland. brooches have always been traditional wedding gifts, betrothal gifts and coming of age gifts for girls.
