Medieval Brooches

Back in the medieval day, a brooch was most often seen keeping cloaks, robes, and other garments secured closed. Today, the medieval brooches found here at Dark Knight Armoury still fulfill that purpose quite well, although that is not all they can do, as they make great accent pieces that can be worn with all manner of different styles with ease. Our brooches come in a variety of styles, ranging from the more historically accurate penannular brooches to more modernized variants that feature a decorative face and a pin on the back for wearing. Either way, though, they are great for pinning fabrics down, especially if you are looking to secure a cloak in place. Or, if perhaps you are looking for a great little accessory to pin onto your shoulder, then these brooches will work wonders as well. And if you look carefully here, you might even recognize a few pieces here from other sources, as we offer Spartan brooches and Templar brooches as well as several others that are drawn from historically famous sources. Modernized or medieval, you can bet that any of the medieval brooches you will find here in this section are bound to be killer accessories, which will enhance your look with ease or will make a fantastic gift to give to anyone who has an interest in medieval wear and accessories.
