SCOTTISH LUCKENBOOTH SINGLE HEART
Thomas Sabo Style
This adorable Luckenbooth heart clip-on charm is solid sterling silver and very versatile.
Clip it onto a 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.
We like to think of this as the Scottish counterpart to the Irish claddagh.
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 heart is 1/2" across
Packaging: This item comes in a silver foil box with a silver stretch tie - ready made for a gift. A small sterling silver polishing cloth is included in the box to keep the charm shiny and tarnish-free.
