This magnificent MacDonald Clan Crest signet ring carries the proud Donald clan motto "Per Mare Per Terras" which means "By sea and by land"; the crest is a crown from which a hand in armour is holding a cross. The rings with celtic sides taper along the triquetras. These rings are popular for women, or for men's pinkies rings.
The MacDonald Clan Crest, which all family members are entitled to wear, is from the crest on the top of the Clan Chief’s “Coat of Arms”. The complete MacDonald Coat of Arms is displayed only by the Clan Chief and passes down directly to their heir. The wearing of your Clan Chief’s Crest is a way of honoring your Chief, your Clan association and your Scottish Family Ancestry. The name is spelled in a variety of ways including McDonald.
