Oval apron brooches are signature elements of Viking's female costume. They were used mostly as a necessary accessory to wear Apron overdress. These beautiful jewelry pieces have been made as a part of our “Shieldmaiden” collection to be worn with our “Ingrid the Hearthkeeper” Apron. There is in-house designed etched pattern on them to match this costume.
Keep in mind that small pieces like clasps, bags, belt and other accessories make your costume much more personal and authentic.
Please contact us if you have any additional questions.
Please note that this item made of stainless steel/with stainless steel accents will be non-blackened, as blackening cannot be performed on stainless steel.

I am interested in these fibulas for my costume but they are shown with two strands of beautiful beads. Can these be purchased also?
Hi Dawn, the beads are not for sale, unfortunately. They were made once for the photo shoot only.
Are these Brass and blackened as stated in the title? or Stainless Steel as in the note?
By default the fibulas are Brass, but can be order in Stainless steel as well, just switch to a "Custom size" tab and choose the material.
Hi! I'm hoping to use these fibulas with a linen outfit. Do you have any advice on how to pin these on without damaging the cloth? I was thinking of adding buttonholes but would like your input.
The idea with the buttonholes is good, as the fibula pin is approx. 2-2.5 mm wide. On the Ingrid the Hearthkeeper costume it is also kept on the buttonholes which are on the apron.
Can you attach a chain to these to use as a cloak clasp? Thanks!
Yes, the chain will cost $15.00 extra. If this works for you, please order via the site and mention the chain in a comment to your order, and we'll send a PayPal invoice for the extra charge to your email.
I would need these for a Viking Festival I will be reenacting at on May 1st. Is there an option for expedited shipping? I would just hate to get them right after I actually would need them...
Hi Kaitlin! Please simply select express shipping option at the checkout and leave a comment to your order with the date when you need the order at hand.
Is the string of beads included with the fibulas?
The string of beads is not included, this listing is for two clasps only.
What kind of clasp is on the back? Please show image of back.
Pinback button. Back view, welcome!
That's a good price!
You have some beautiful things!
A lot of :)

I got this to keep up my apron but also because it looked really nice... the price for what it was is worth it.. I did do research and did not find that didn't cost less then this for the same quality...
Beautiful, high quality and extremely sturdy!
Great service. Excellent item. Will use this site again
I’ve purchased two of these brooches, one for a gift and one for use for my Viking cloak. They work well and look great.
