Luckenbooth Brooch



This stylish brooch shows the Luckenbooth heart which has been used since the 16th Century. The Luckenbooth is one of the most romantic Scottish symbols of love,  and often given as a token of betrothal, affection and friendship. It is usually in the shape of a heart or two entwined hearts, symbolizing love, with a crown, symbolizing loyalty, topping the heart(s). In addition, a couple may pin a Luckenbooth to their firstborn’s blanket as a good luck charm. The name comes from the locking booths or small shops - a feature of Edinburgh's Royal Mile.

Dimensions: 1 1/4" (3cm) x 1.5" (4cm)
