Ireland may have its “Claddagh,” but Scotland has its own 18th century “Love token,” the “Luckenbooth.” The young couple exchange Luckenbooths as an engagement gift and wear them on their wedding day. It has been said that Mary, Queen of Scotts was given a Luckenbooth brooch by The Daphin of France before they were married. After he passed away, she returned heartbroken to Scotland and later gave a piece of Luckenbooth jewelry to Lord Darnley. They were married shortly later. That might explain the Crown over the two hearts. The popularity of the Luckenbooth continues as it has for the last 300 years.today
