It is usually in the shape of a heart or two entwined hearts, symbolizing love, with a crown, symbolizing loyalty, topping the hearts.
In addition, a couple may pin a Luckenbooth to their firstborn’s blanket as a good luck charm. A beautiful gift for a newlywed couple or anyone with a new baby!

****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.
