Inspired with a Celtic Thistle, this kilt pin features an Amber colored stone in the center making it a beautiful addition to any kilt.  Handmade in fine English Pewter.  The plated brass pin on the back is strong enough to support the heavy kilt material found on traditional Highland dress. 

Folklore suggests usage began in the Victorian era, and provides one with a delightful anecdote on its origins. During a visit to Balmoral Castle, Queen Victoria inspected the famed Douglas Highlanders, a regiment noted for its bravery. The wind blew fierce and one young soldier encountered great difficulty holding his position. Kilts are frequently worn without undergarments and the queen noticed the soldier's struggle to appear modest and yet stand still. Taking a brooch from her own clothing, she kindly pinned the soldier's kilt.
