This beautifully well done pin is full of Scottish pride! This piece looks very regal and joins together tradition beautifully!
A Luckenbooth is to the Scottish as the Claddagh is to the Irish. It is a love story....A Scottish love token often given to a new mother, or a new bride. It can be given to a friend. Often times they were given as a symbol of protection. The Luckenbooth features a crown, heart and the letter M (queen Mary) The Luckenbooth is a very romantic and symbolic Scottish design. This will be GREAT for lovers, friends, children. This pin will be wonderful for weddings.
Luckenbooths were first sold from "locked booths" in Edinburgh's Royal Mile dating back to the 15th century, If that is not enough, we have placed a beautiful Scottish Thistle in the center! You are going to love this piece and want to get an extra for a friend. Our pin will look great against any color clothing and Tartan sash.
*****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.
