Witches hearts, or "luckenbooths" as they are sometimes known, were originally worn as a talisman to ward off the eye and protect a mother during childbirth, but in the 17th and 18th century the heart started to be used more as a love token, symbolising the romantic connection between two people. 

This beautiful witches heart brooch is a wonderful piece of history made during the Victorian era, circa 1890.  It's crafted from Sterling Silver and Paste, and is just full of romantic antique charm!

The brooch has a wonderful aged patina which accentuates the Paste gems. They've been cut just like old  Diamonds and sparkle with just as much fire.

It'll look fabulous at the collar of a shirt or blouse, on a coat lapel and would be a lovely specimen for any collector.
