History played an important part in Victorian costume and lifestyle making revival jewelry - Celtic, Irish, Scottish, Egyptian even more popular.

The gaelic word Clan originally meant descendant or family unit and became the political, economic and social groupings in the Scottish highland until the political oppression of 1745. Each clan claims its own "heraldry" in the form of a tartan, kilt, scarf and other insignia
.Loyalty to the clan is fierce and unquestioned.

Large 4" silver clan/kilt pin Argyll and Sutherland encircle a boar's head (symbol of the clan Campbells of Argyll) and a rampant cat (symbol of the clan Sutherland).The center is the monogram of Princess Louise who was the fourth daughter of Her Late Majesty,
Queen Victoria and colonel-in-chief of the regiment until her death in
1939. Thistles around the edge. Still attached to a green plaid woolen square. Most of this information was supplied to me by a kind member of the Monarchist League of Canada
