More Details about the Elements of Family Crests:
The Helm and Mantle: Originally intended to shield the knight from the heat of the sun and to ward off rain, the mantle was a piece of cloth placed over the helmet, draping down the back to the base of the helm. The mantle is often embellished with the artistic coat of arms to give prominence to the arms and crest.

The helm or helmet is used to indicate the rank of the bearer of the arms from the gold full-faced helm of royalty to the steel helmet with closed visor of a gentleman. By the end of the 13th century many nobles and knights had adopted a secondary hereditary device called a crest. Most commonly made of feathers, leather, or wood, the crest was used to help distinguish the helm, similar to the device on the shield.

The Shield: The escutcheon or field on which are placed the bearings in coats of arms is known as the shield. This comes from the fact that in medieval times the shield borne on the arm of a knight was ornamented with various devices in order to identify him to his friends in the midst of battle. Also known as a heater, the shield displays the unique colors and charges (lions, designs, etc. that appear on the shield) that. Shield shapes may vary according to their geographical origin as well as the time period.

The Motto or Name: Not officially granted with a coat of arms, mottos are a phrase which incorporates the basic philosophy of the family or an ancient war cry. They may or may not be present on an individual coat of arms, and are normally placed below the shield and can be supplanted with the Family Name.

Family Crest

I decided on the 1 3/8" (35mm) die for my Irish family crest and although it is large, it ended up being the best size for this kind of seal. Nostalgic Impressions worked with me, back and forth to ensure the detail would come out as I envisioned, which was paramount in achieving the success I was looking for with this purchase. Their recommendations were absolutely the best course and I appreciated them being as engaged with this project as I was. Having a family crest wax seal is definitely a statement piece, and it needs a lot of wax to look good but it is absolutely worth having for correspondence up to the next level. I am very pleased with this seal and it will be an heirloom item to pass down to the next generation.

Golden seal of approval

The stamp was made very well. Purchased with another stamp kit, the wax used is very good quality giving a detail impression. It was as described giving the family crest a perfection seal during each use. As you see in the photo my wax stamp work is still in training.(Determining how much wax to use with each seal)
