The Luckenbooth is one of the most romantic Scottish symbols of love, from the 17th century 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).
Luckenbooth jewelry is a traditional Scottish love token often given as a engagement, wedding or love token. It might be worn by a new mother as a charm of protection or be pinned to a baby's clothing to protect it from harm (and later be passed on to the child!).
The luckenbooth has motifs similar to the Claddagh, also using the heart and crown. Heart-shaped jewelry 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. The Luckenbooth has been passed down from generation to generation in Scottish families, and has become a treasured heirloom as a symbol of enduring love and protection.
