This impressive penannular brooch is a striking accessory, decorated both on the hoop ends, and on the pin head, with a Trinity Knot.
This brooch would be as much at home on a renaissance costume, as on any modern clothing. This is a typical style of clothes fastener used in early medieval Ireland.
A pennanular brooch has a long pin attached to an open hoop, but the pin can move freely around the hoop. The fabric is enclosed between the hoop and pin. The pin is then turned until the pin tip is locked in place, just past the decorated hoop end. Unlike a modern brooch, where the pin stabs through the fabric, a pennanular brooch does not leave a permanent hole.
