Luckenbooth Love Stone


Luckenbooth brooches originate in the 16th century and usually feature two entwined hearts under a crown. The name comes from the 'Lucken' or locked booths in Edinburgh from which they were sold that ran from St Giles Cathedral on the Royal Mile to the Canongate. Traditionally given as love tokens or wedding gifts.

I'll happily carve initials or a date onto the stone. Send me an email or fb message after you place your order. Orders normally take 7-14 days. If you need a stone sooner, please email or send a message so I can prioritise your order!

Sent in a jute gift bag. We can also pop a wee note in the bag if you wish.
