The term 'Mizpah' is found in Genesis 31:49, it means 'watchtower' and is used as a blessing, meaning "May the Lord keep watch between you and me when we are away from each other". You just know that those sentimental Victorians had to use this romantic and wonderful phrase in their art and jewelry! This ring would likely have been considered a 'sweetheart ring' and would have been given by a gentleman to his lady love interest to show his intention to court her.
I fell hard for this particular version of the Mizpah ring. It is just absolutely gorgeously hand crafted using three tones of gold to wonderful effect. The 18 karat ring is crafted with a yellow gold band style shank with modified mill graining all the way around the edges at the top and bottom and these wonderfully detailed letters in alternating rose and green gold. It is fully hallmarked showing that it was made in England jewelry making center of Birmingham in 1883. It is in very crisp condition for it's age. It is a size 6 and could be resized a little bit in either direction, it weighs 3.5 grams.
