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 preotection or be pinned to a baby's clothing to protect it from harm. The luckenbooth brooch 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. 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. 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.
