This magnificent Shaw Clan Crest signet ring carries the motto `FIDE ET FORTITUDINE (By faith and fortitude, or fidelity and fortitude)'; the crest shows a right arm holding a dagger. The rings with celtic sides taper along the triquetra designs. These rings are popular for women, or for men's pinkie rings.
There are several spelling variations for the Clan Shaw family surname. Throughout the centuries, surnames have continued to 'develop' often leading to astonishing variants of the original Shaw spelling.
The Shaw Clan Crest, which all members are entitled to wear when the crest badge is encircled by a belt and buckle, is from the crest on the top of the Clan Shaw Chief’s Coat of Arms. The complete Shaw Coat of Arms is displayed only by the Clan Chief and passes down directly to their heir. The wearing of your Clan Shaw Chief’s Crest badge is a way of honoring your Chief, your Clan association and your Scottish Family Ancestry.
