Popular throughout the mid to late Victorian era, Mizpah jewelry symbolized an emotional bond between two people. Jewelry emblazoned with the word “mizpah” (and sometimes the accompanying biblical phrase “The Lord watch between me and thee, when we are absent from one another”) was exchanged between lovers and close friends who were to be separated for a period of time. This outstanding Victorian ring is made in 15k yellow gold with a pearl and rose cut diamond cluster head flanked by shoulders enameled with the word “Mizpah.”
15k yellow gold, white and black enamel, pearls, rose cut diamonds.
Hallmarked Birmingham 1872.
Very good - minor wear to the enamel commensurate with age and use.
8.25, can be resized for an additional fee of $90; 1.37 x 1.06cm head, 2.3mm hoop.
