This beautiful Luckenbooth brooch is made from Sterling Silver, with a colourful Heathergem in the centre.
The luckenbooth brooch is a traditional Scottish love token often given as a wedding gift. "Luckenbooths" were shops in Edinburgh, situated on the Royal Mile. They were the city's first permanent shops that housed jewellery workers and other trades dating from the 16th century.
Heathergems are made from Scottish Heather collected in the Perthshire hills, that is then dried, dyed, compressed and cut into colourful "gems", reflecting the colours and textures of the country's landscape.
Due to the nature of the process no two Heathergems are the same making it a very individual, personal gift. Please note that the colours will vary. Supplied in a gift box with story card.
Handcrafted in Scotland.
