      Every once in a while I have an occasion to either make or repair
      a "cope"..... a religious vestment that is a large "cape" with a
      heavy clasp on the front. I have compiled a list of folks who make or
      carry nice heavy clasps. Some of these can be used at the neck or on
      a belt. Maybe you can find something in one of these that would serve
      your purpose. There's a variety of styles and prices.... $4 to $60 or
      more, depending of the metal or plating and whether the clasp is hand
      made or "stamped" by machine.

      www.cloakmaker.com/clasps/celtic.html There are also "european"
      and "viking" sections of clasps.

      Hope you find something that you like.
