SCOTTISH LUCKENBOOTH THISTLE
Thomas Sabo Style
This adorable Luckenbooth heart clip-on charm is solid sterling silver and very versatile.
Clip it onto a charm bracelet, a keyring, purse, backpack, or other item that has an attachment loop. It's compatible with Thomas Sabo and Charmed Moments bracelets and necklaces.
The crowned heart design was inspired by the centuries-old tradition of the Scottish Luckenbooth charms and brooches. Heart-shaped brooches, in vogue in the early 1700's, were traditionally exchanged between lovers on betrothal and later pinned to the baby's shawl to protect the child from evil "spirits." The name comes from their sale in the "locked booths," or Luckenbooths around St. Giles Cathedral on The Royal Mile in Edinburgh, Scotland.
This interpretation of the Luckenbooth features a beautifully detailed Scottish thistle
The reverse side of the charm is flat and smooth.
Material: All parts of this clip-on charm are solid sterling silver.
Sizes: The entire clip-on charm measures just under 1-1/2" long; the Luckenbooth charm is 5/8" across and 1" high.
We like to think of this as the Scottish counterpart to the Irish claddagh.
