Luckenbooth Luckenbooths were originally secured locked shops in the 16th century situated in Edinburgh on the Royal Mile

. According to tradition, the Luckenbooth brooch is a wedding brooch which was given to the bride by the groom on their wedding day. The brooch would then be passed on to their first baby, where it would be pinned to the babies shawl to protect it from "evil spirits". The Luckenbooth brooch has similar detailing to that of the Claddagh ring, with a prominent theme of the heart and crown. During the 18th century, the Luckenbooth brooch became widespread as it was used as a token for trade items to the native people of the eastern woodlands.
