  • Polished Thistle & Red Stone Plaid Brooch

BP05CR Plaid Brooch w/ Red Stone & Thistle (3 1/4" across)


Product Description

This stunning brooch is made of polished silver and features a repeating thistle pattern around the face with a red stone in the center. It measures at 3 and 1/4 inches across. This is a top quality brooch, made in Scotland.




The plaid originates from the historic Great Kilt worn by a highlander.

The tartan fabric would serve both as a blanket and bedding to sleep with, and also as clothing to wear during the day. The tartan was wrapped around the waist and folded in a "pleat-like" style which was held in place by a belt. The material that was left over from the waist was then thrown over the left shoulder.

Today, we honor this historic garment by wearing a plaid of matching tartan which is held in place by a decorative brooch.

  1. Cheap looking, cladp broke

    This is not a heavy large brooch. The stone is flat in the setting. I was disappointed with this pin for my pipers plaid. Clasp broke after a few months.
