Unique Sterling silver Luckenbooth brooch with natural Heathergem. Luckenbooths were shops in Edinburgh, Scotland situated on the Royal Mile from St. Giles' Cathedral down to the Cannongate. They were the city's first permanent shops that housed jewelery workers and other trades dating from the 16th century. The Luckenbooth Brooch is a wedding gift given to the bride by the groom on their wedding day, and subsequently pinned to the shawl of the first baby to protect it from evil spirits.
No two heather gems are ever exactly the same; they are truly original.
