This Luckenbooth Love Token is the perfect gift for your special someone. Its entwined hearts with a crown and thistle symbolize true love and protection, while its historic legend of soldiers marching down the Edinburgh Mile, stopping to purchase a Luckenbooth for their sweetheart or wife further adds to its charm. The name comes from the Luckenbooths or 'locked booths/stalls along the Royal Mile near St. Giles Cathedral. The Luckenbooth brooch is a traditional Scottish love token often given as a betrothal or wedding brooch. Our Luckenbooth pendants are engraved by hand, using old world tools and craftsmanship that can only come from skills that are passed down from generation to generation.
This particular Luckenbooth is engraved on the reverse with the Gaelic love phrase, Mo Leannan, or My Sweetheart. This Gaelic phrase - an offering of love between partners, or simply a reminder of where your heart lies - will become a treasured heirloom for generations to come!
Hand-engraved, British hallmarked sterling silver, set in 14k yellow gold bezel setting.
NOTE: We have one in stock and ready to ship, however you may also custom order your own Luckenbooth with a customized reverse inscription of your choosing. Please email us to discuss options.
