Victorian Mizpah Silver Ring


During the Victorian period, the word “Mizpah” had magical, almost amuletic qualities. Mentioned in the Bible, it’s a Hebrew word that connotes an emotional bond between two people. During the Victorian period (and briefly again during WW1), “Mizpah” jewelry was exchanged between two lovers or close friends who were about to be separated. The hope was that wearing the word on your body would bring the two of you closer either in spirit or physically. This one is made in silver with the word “Mizpah” in fancy script over a stippled ground. Birmingham assay marks date it to 1882.
