Kilt Pins (Kiltpins)

The kilt pin is a traditional piece in Scottish wear. Although it is widely considered that kilt pins are intended to be worn on a Scottish kilt or kilted (pleated) skirt, they can be worn in other ways. They make a fine pin for a shawl or scarf, or they can be worn on a coat lapel as a decorative piece.

It is not always realized that the kilt pin does not go through both layers of a kilt, but only goes through the top layer. The kilt pin acts as a decoration and also as a weight on the top layer of the kilt.

Please check the size of each piece carefully against a ruler before ordering. We give measurements of all jewelry pieces on this site so that you will know their size in advance; this will save disappointment, returning pieces, etc.

Stone color: although purple is very popular with modern Scots, the most traditional Scottish stone is the smoky quartz or topaz. This is because the gemstones that were mined in the Cairngorm mountains of Scotland in the old days, called cairngorms, were smoky quartz (and possibly also topaz -- there is some variation of opinion on this!). These come in various shades of smoky yellow.
