The Luckenbooth Legend

The Luckenbooth is a Scottish symbol of love, dating back to the 17th century and often given as a token of betrothal, affection and friendship. It is usually in the shape of a heart or two entwined hearts symbolizing love and with a crown to symbolize loyalty. Luckenbooths were sold from shops or "locked booths" in Edinburgh's Royal Mile hence the name Luckenbooth.
