Story

Mizpah jewelry is a subset of what has been termed sentimental jewelry, i.e. that of love and loss. The simple block letters MIZPAH are typically found on brooches and rings. Here we find a less conventional use in the form of a circa 1890 locket. Both 14k yellow and rose gold has been employed to best advantage in the art of decoration.

Amidst a ribbon banner in rose gold the word “MIZPAH” has been boldly chased across the front of the double sided oval locket. The reverse reveals a series of botanical and organic design forms covering the entire surface of the locket. Quite beautiful, tactile and, of course poignant.
