    Another bit of the story... ("The Luckenbooth brooch, so called because of its sale from "locked booths" on the Royal Mile, adjacent to St.Giles Cathedral, was traditionally gifted by a young man to his betrothed and was subsequently pinned to the shawl of the first baby to protect if from "evil spirits" and thus they have passed down through generations of Scottish families. The heart shape is significant of its purpose and a surmounting crown symbolic of Mary Queen of Scots.")
