Mizpah literally means watch tower in Hebrew but the giving of Mizpah rings and tokens was a symbolic gesture of an emotional tie between two people.
This is one of the best examples of a Victorian Mizpah ring we have seen. It is a beautiful 18ct rose gold band with beautiful embossed lettering in coloured gold. The ring is complete with millegrain detailing to the ring edges. The is fully hallmarked for Chester, England and assayed 1882. This is a really beautiful and unique find - a one time only opportunity to own this special piece.
“And [it was called] Mizpah (Watchtower); for he said, The Lord watch between me and thee, when we are absent one from another.” (Genesis, 31:49)

ABOUT OUR JEWELLERY
This piece has been specifically selected by us, for you. We choose vintage and antique items which we think are beautiful, elegant and classic at a range of price points between £30 and £3,000. Generally, this means we only ever have one of each piece. We don’t select pieces which are “mass market” but rather items which are more individual. This means that once an item has been purchased, it really has gone. Each piece comes in an attractive jewellery presentation box.
