Quick Overview

This beautiful bold Luckenbooth Brooch has a purple thistle heart design surmounted by the crown of Mary Queen of Scots. The Scottish Thistle is the national flower of Scotland. The Luckenbooth is one of the most romantic traditions from Scotland's rich history. Luckenbooths as love tokens are given by a groom-to-be to his betrothed to pin to her dress on their wedding day. The luckenbooth would then be pinned to the blanket of the first-born child for good luck and to protect from evil spirits.

The Luckenbooth is a Scottish symbol of love, dating back to 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 and with a crown to symbolize loyalty. Luckenbooths were sold from shops or "locked booths" in Edinburgh's Royal Mile hence the name Luckenbooth.
