Heather Gem Luckenbooth Brooch

  • Model: SB10
  • Shipping Weight: 1lbs


Heather Gems are unique jewelry handcrafted in Scotland from the stems of heather - an indigenous low-growing shrub renowned for its lovely blooms. These stems are gathered,dyed, and then compressed into gemstones. Each brooch is sterling silver worked into a Luckenbooth and set with a single Heather Gem. Luckenbooth brooches are heart-shaped and were seen widely in the early 1700s. The brooch was traditionally exchanged between lovers upon their engagement and then pinned to their baby's shawl to protect the child from evil spirits. Please note that because of the nature of the plant and the process, each stone is unique and colors will vary from piece to piece. Each Heather Gem piece comes with a lovely presentation box.
