Solid sterling silver
Beautiful, highly polished sterling silver pendant with a detailed thistle. The Luckenbooth design is a traditional Scottish love token often given as a engagement, wedding or love token.
It might be worn by new mother as a charm to protect her and her baby from harm. The Luckenbooth design 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 protect the baby.
