The luckenbooth brooch is a traditional Scottish love token often given as a engagement, wedding or love token. It might be worn by a nursing mother as a charm to help her milk flow,and/or be pinned to a baby's clothing to protect it from harm. It was known as a witch-brooch by people using it to save children from the evil eye.
The luckenbooth brooch has motifs similar to the Claddagh, also using the heart and crown. Heart-shaped brooches in parts of Europe date back to late medieval times.
As a Protection Token
The Luckenbooth, made of pure sterling silver, symbolizes both love and protection because, when a couple has a child, the brooch or necklace would be put on the baby to ward off evil. Especially in the Highlands, Scots were superstitious. The Luckenbooth was believed to help to make sure the baby wasn’t a changeling, swapped by fairies.
