An XL locket made of metal with a high-quality gold coating. The finish is rich, matte and buttery - absolutely passes for solid gold. Mizpah was an obscure biblical thing that became shorthand in the 19th century for, essentially, "I love and miss you". Fabulous Victorian couple inside.
base metal, photographs
