  • Fun Facts

    The luckenbooth brooch is probably the most romantic of the traditional Scottish brooches. Already a popular style by the mid 18th century, the crowned heart pins now known as luckenbooths took their name from the locked booths ("Luckenbooths" in Scots dialect) of Edinburgh. By the mid 1700's, the jewelers of Edinburgh were producing these brooches in such quantity that they constituted a definitive style. In Scotland, they given as lover's gifts and as good luck charms. Young men would often present the women they were courting with a luckenbooth brooch as a symbol of their affection. They were also a popular gift for brides and new mothers.By the early 1800's, it was acknowledged as a country tradition to pin a luckenbooth to a baby's blanket as a good luck charm for both the mother and the baby.
