Celebrate Valentine's Day with special jigs, reels, and strathspeys!
These silver brooches consisted of entwined hearts, or hearts with a crown on top. The name is derived from the Luckenbooths or Locking Booths – small shops that were a regular feature on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile.
Luckenbooths also might be worn by nursing mothers or be pinned to a baby's clothing to protect it from harm. Variations of these brooches were also sometimes known as a witches' brooches or witches' hearts to protect against the "evil eye."
