What are family crests?

Family crests date back to the days of knights in shining armour. They were a component of the heraldry emblazoned on their armour, shield and flags to identify them at jousting tournaments or on the battlefield. Overtime they developed and became beautiful, symbolic artforms to represent the family name.

What is Heraldry?

Heraldry evolved in the Middle Ages to identify the wearer of armour in battle and flourished with the popularity of jousting tournaments. Heraldic markings started with simple colours and shapes and became more complicated over time. The descriptions of the various heraldic markings were recorded in Norman English as "Blazons"(see Glossary). The rules which developed under the presiding officers of the tournaments still form the basis of heraldic law.

In the 15th Century the presiding officers formed the College of Arms which is run by the Garter Principal King of Arms. Its members, known collectively as Officers of Arms, have historic names dating back to the origins of heraldry such as Garter, Clarenceaux and Norroy, Apart from the ceremonial duties at important state occasions the main duties of the Officers of Arms are the granting and matriculating of arms and the dealing of all matters to do with ceremony, peerage law, succession to titles, heraldry and genealogy.

Ireland had its own version in the Ulster Office but since 1948 the post of Ulster King of Arms has been combined with Norroy. Wales is represented by the Wales Herald Extraordinary. Scottish heraldic matters are managed separately by the Lyon Court in Edinburgh presided over by the Lord Lyon King of Arms who forms part of the Scottish legal system. The heraldic system used in Scotland is much more complicated than in England. A Scottish Clan badge is usually the Chiefs crest surrounded by a buckled belt bearing a motto.

What is a Coat of Arms?

A coat of arms is the entire heraldic device including the mantling, a helmet, a crest, a motto and, in the case of peers and clan chiefs, a coronet and supporters. They are displayed on a shield and together they identify the owner who has been granted the right to bear arms. A son will inherit his father's arms and quarter them with his mothers and so on making some coats of arms very complicated.


What is a Crest?

The crest sits on top of the coat of arms, often above the symbol of a helmet. This reflects its medieval origins as a means of identification during combat when an emblem would be attached to the top, or crest, of the combatant's helmet. Unlike a coat of arms, the crest can remain the same across generations and different branches of one family.

Sometimes a family's crest is a play on the surname (e.g. the Trotters have a trotting horse) or an emblem of its occupation or trade. A ducal coronet may be added to the crest of a Bishop while a mural coronet can signify a military distinction and a naval coronet a naval one.

However it is not unusual for branches of one family to develop different crests to distinguish themselves. If they are not accompanied by a coat of arms, crests are usually shown on top of a twisted band (a wreath), coronet or cap (called a chapeau) reflecting their historic origin. Traditionally, only crests were engraved on the family's silver in the United Kingdom as the full coat of arms was reserved for larger and more ceremonial items


Family Crest Jewelry, military rings, brooches and the like, are all pieces of jewellery (spelled “Jewelry” in the United States). Jewellery can be made out of just about any material known to man, from very expensive to very inexpensive. The list of possible materials includes precious metals such as gold, sterling silver and platinum. Base metals such as silver plate, brass or pewter can be used. Precious and semi-precious gemstones such as diamonds, emeralds, sapphires, and rubies make jewelry affordable.

Fashion & Costume Jewelry

Family Crest Jewelry has existed since prehistoric times. Often persons of importance during ancient times were buried with their jewellery. Most probably jewelry originated as a form of pinning clothes together and as a way to store and later display wealth. Although it can still be used for those purposes, jewellery is now used almost exclusively for personal adornment or as a fashion accessory.

Jewellery can symbolize membership in a group, such as a Masonic ring or a Christian crucifix. It can be used to denote a particular status, such as a papal ring, a royal signet ring or even a military ring indicating that the person wearing it is married. High-quality jewelry (known as fine jewelry) is made of precious metals and sometimes precious gems. Costume jewellery which is often quite flashy is made of base metals. Synthetic simulated stones such as cubic zirconia or rhinestones are used most of the time.

Custom Family Crest Rings

Family Crest jewellery can be extremely expensive and, since it almost always retains and even appreciates in value. It can be looked at as a form of investment. Goldsmiths, silversmiths and lapidaries are the most common jewellery makers. The methods that they use include forging, casting, soldering or welding, cutting, carving, and a technique called “cold-joining,” which uses adhesives or rivets to assemble the jewelry components. Family Crest Rings are a fine example of fine jewelry.

Gold Military Rings

Most American and European gold jewellery is not made of pure gold, but rather of an alloy of gold – a mixture of gold and some other metal. The purity of the gold used in a ring or other piece of jewelry is identified in karats. American gold jewellery must be at least 10K (a little more than 40% gold in the alloy) and is typically no more than 18K (75% pure gold). Higher percentages of gold are much less common, more expensive, and usually considered to be too soft for jewellery use. Gold military rings are mostly made of 10K gold, as it’s very durable.

Body Jewelry

Jewellery can be used to decorate just about any body part. Most typically these include fingers, wrists, ears, arms and necks, but recently there has been a huge increase in the popularity of “body jewelry” that adorns navels, tongues, noses and other more unusual parts of the body. Jewellery can be a gift for someone you love, a gift that perfectly symbolizes your affection.
