Our beautifully crafted Luckenbooth broach takes the form of two Celtic intertwined hearts surmounted by a crown.

The Luckenbooth brooch has been used as a romantic gift in Scotland for at least four hundred years and was commonly given to a bride along with her wedding ring. The design is said to have been created for the betrothal brooch of Mary Queen of Scots from the fourteen year old Dauphin of France, whom she married in 1558, hence the two hearts surmounted by the royal crown. The name derives from the “locked Booths” near St Giles in Edinburgh where the design was sold for romantic occasions such as engagements and weddings.

The Luckenbooth is also known as a witches or fairies heart and would be worn as a protective talisman to ward off supernatural forces such as the 'evil eye'. The charm would be pinned within the clothing of children to offer protection from evil spirits, deamons and wicked faeries.

This high quality Scottish silver brooch is handcrafted in the beautiful Western Isles of Scotland and is hallmarked at the Edinburgh assay office. Comes supplied in a black box with the option of a luxury box for special occasions.

This stunning Scottish silver Luckenbooth brooch would make a fantastic gift and family heirloom which will be admired and treasured for years to come.
