Comment(s).

¹. The traditional heart-shaped silver lucky booth brooches of the lowlands, so called because they had once been from lockable booths surrounding St. Giles's Kirk, Edinburgh, derived from medieval betrothal gifts. In the 18th century they also served as protection against witches. These were also the subject of variation in the Victorian era. Sometimes the hearts were doubled and laid on their sides to look like confronted scrolls, or a single heart was exchanged for a shield, probably copied from the Highland brooch presented to Princess Alexandra in 1863 (Shirley Bury, ‘Jewellery: The International Era 1789-1910. Volume 2 1862-1910, 1991).
