Jewelry inscribed with “mizpah” (an emotional bond between people who have been separated from one another) was very popular in the Victorian and Edwardian eras. The Biblical word was used to express their connection to the departed as well as the living. This Victorian ring is fashioned in 18k gold with crisp reeded edges and features the word “Mizpah” punctuated with a pair of gem set hearts.
