Victorian Silver Gilt Luckenbooth Locket Bangle Bracelet

I discovered this bangle while wandering the Sunday morning market at Horticultural Hall on my last trip to London. It was so wonderful to find a bangle rocking one of my favorite motifs, the luckenbooth. This beautiful double heart motif gets its name from the locked booths that sold brooches with this iconic motif along the Royal Mile near St. Giles Cathedral in Edinburgh, Scotland. This crown and heart motif also birthed the claddagh ring design. They were usually given as a love token or a betrothal gift, the two hearts intertwining symbolized a lasting union, the crown was a symbol of loyalty.

This fabulous luckenbooth bangle was handcrafted around 1850. It is made in silver with a golden gilt finish and showcases the traditional luckenbooth motif. It measures 6.75 inches around and the bangle’s face is 28 mm north to south and 22.2 mm across, it is 7 mm deep. This wonderful piece is locket topped with a frame inside and fleur de lis on the shoulders. This bracelet contains a safety chain, so you’ll never have to worry. It weighs 34.6 grams and has been acid tested.

Wear as a symbol of love and fidelity, or simply because it’s steeped in history and culture.
