The Charm of Love

By Sophie

A Luckenbooth brooch is a Scottish heart-shaped brooch, often with a crown above one heart, or two intertwined hearts. The brooches are typically made of silver, and are sometimes engraved or set with stones. For the wealthier customer, Luckenbooth brooches would be made with gold, however silver was common among 'lucky' charms and affordable to those who were poorer.
