Luckenbooth Pendant
 
Keith Jack’s luckenbooth pendant is a tastefully sleek rendition of a centuries old Scottish symbol of love and devotion.  This gracefully-shaped heart pendant is adorned with the crown of Mary, Queen of Scotland, and incorporates Scotland’s national flower, the thistle.
 
Traditionally, the groom-to-be would present the luckenbooth to his betrothed as a token of his love, and she would pin it to her gown on their wedding day.  The same brooch would then be pinned to the blanket of the couple’s first born child for good luck and to ward off evil spirits.
 
The romantic Scottish tradition of gifting luckenbooth booches dates back to the 17th Century.  The name luckenbooth refers to the shoppes or ”locked booths” (as they were called by the Scots) where the charms  were originally sold.  These “locked booths” were Edinburgh’s first permanent shoppes  and are located in the city’s Royal Mile near St. Giles Cathedral.
