This magnificent ring carries the Stewart crest of a pelican in her nest feeding her young, and the proud Stewart clan motto, “Virescit vulnere virtus” meaning "Courage grows strong at a wound". The rings with celtic triquetra designs on the sides taper more quickly than the wide-band rings, and are thinner at the back. These rings are popular for women.
The Stewart Clan Crest which, all members are entitled to wear, is from the crest on the top of the Clan Chief’s “Coat of Arms”. The complete Stewart 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.
