Gothic Knight’s Heraldic Belt
Leather and brass plaque belt with enameled plates
This is a belt truly worthy of a knight or lord. It is our modern adaptation of a XIV-XV century plaque belt, an artifact often found on effigies and statues of figures of importance. Instead of casting the plaques as they were done historically, we have used thick brass plates, etched patterns into them and then filled them with enamel to create a similar effect to their historical inspiration. Everything about this belt radiates an aura of importance that demands respect. A number of things contribute to this: the luxe materials used, the bright enamel, the fact that it is made specifically to your measurements, and not a one-size-fits-all stock belt.
The base for this belt is made from premium leather, in your choice of brown or black. Along the belt are plaques made from brass, alternating in a square and circle shape. The different shapes mean that this belt is incredibly visually interesting - you’ll catch tons of people trying to sneak a look at it all the time! The plaques are attached with tiny brass rivets and washers, meaning they are secured and will stand the test of time. Within the plaques, you’ll find simple but striking geometric designs that really pop with the help of strategically placed enamel. These enamel accents can be customized in a variety of different colors to better suit your heraldry and compliment the rest of your kit.
The buckle for this belt consists of a round brass piece, bigger than the other plaques on the belt. It is also ornately enameled with a slightly different pattern, and attached to the rest of the belt with two strong hooks on the back which hold it in place. There is no “overhang” with this belt, it is fitted and should match your measurements precisely.
Due to the design of this belt and how it closes, there is no room for adjustment. We advise that you measure yourself quite closely (over top of any armor or clothing you may wear with the belt), and double check to ensure you have the correct measurement.
