A gorgeous antique Victorian era brooch in the shape of an ornate crowned heart or 'Luckenbooth' that is set in glowing citrine and amethyst paste (glass) gemstones known locally in Scotland as "Cairngorms"

An oval facet cut orange paste citrine decorates the centre surrounded by a halo of round faceted citrine & amethyst pastes, the top of the heart is decorated in little purple paste amethyst cabochons. The silver setting is hand-engraved in feather motifs and zig-zag lines and a decorative silver safety chain and pin adds to the beautiful ornamentation.

Crowned heart jewellery represents loyalty to Scotland as well as a symbol love and affection, little wonder it has been a enduring love token throughout history. Popularly known as the Luckenbooth it is one of the most romantic Scottish symbols and takes its name from the locked wooden booths that sold jewellery and trinkets on Edinburgh's Royal Mile in the 17th century.

A beautiful example of this type of antique sweetheart jewellery, steeped in sentiment and good for the ladies or the gents.
