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 a very rare William IV 18ct yellow gold antique mourning ring set with a Mizpah intaglio chalcedony stone. The ring is fully hallmarked for 1832 and assayed in London, England. The colouring is a beautiful light straw-yellow with some remnants of black enamel work.

An inscription on the back of the ring reads “Joseph Charlesworth 15 February 1845. Oet: 61” This is a really beautiful and unique, rare find!

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.
