Vintage Luckenbooth Love Brooch in Sterling Silver


A lovely vintage sterling silver Luckenbooth brooch from the 1970’s.
The Luckenbooth is one of the most romantic Scottish symbols of love dating back to the 16th century. It is 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). The name comes from the locking booths or small shops – a feature of Edinburgh’s Royal Mile.
Amazingly we also have the original box, so it will come presented as it was in 1975.
We have cleaned and polished this gorgeous brooch, so it is looking fabulous.
