The traditional Malay attire known as the baju kebaya necessitates the use of kerongsang. Kebaya of the olden days came without buttons down the front, and the kerongsang is used to pin the lapels of the kebaya together. Kerongsang usually comes in sets of three. The typical three-piece set comprises of a kerongsang ibu (mother piece) which is larger and heavier. The other two is called the kerongsang anak (child pieces) and is worn below the kerongsang ibu. More often than not, the three pieces that make up the kerongsang set is attached to each other with thin strands of gold or silver, but can be disconnected should the lady wish to wear just one piece of the kerongsang set as a brooch.
Of the various traditional Malay jewelleries, the kerongsang is still widely used today. Although the style and material used for the modern kerongsang is different, kerongsang in sets of three are still popularly worn with the baju kebaya. Other traditional accessories such as the pending, cucuk sanggul and dokoh are normally only worn for special occasions, for example to accessorise the bride on her wedding day.
