What is a Luckenbooth?
A luckenbooth brooch is a Scottish heart-shaped brooch with a crown on top. The luckenbooth is recognized as a traditional Scottish love token often given as a betrothal or wedding brooch. The luckenbooth brooch has symbols similar to the Irish Claddagh which also uses the crown and heart.
The name comes from the luckenboothsof Edinburgh (Scotland) where jewelry and trinkets used to be sold, including this type of brooch. Luckenbooth is a Scots word for a lockable stall or workshop. The Edinburgh booths were situated near Edinburgh Castle. They were the city's first permanent shops, going back to the 15th century, and initially housing mainly silversmiths and goldsmiths.
What is a Heathergem?
Heathergems are hand made in Scotland from natural heather stems. Heathergems are original - no two pieces are ever the same, which makes them the perfect Scottish gift. Specific colors cannot be guaranteed due to the variance of the Heathergems. The gem itself might be a purple tone, or a red tone, or maybe a mix of colors. Whatever the color, you will be satisfied with this extraordinary gift.
