Story

Mizpah jewelry comes under the umbrella of sentimental in nature, those which typically signify love, affection or loss. Mizpah pieces are perhaps one of the more poignant forms as the word itself is Hebrew for “watchtower”. The most noted reference is from the Old Testament saying of “The Lord watch between me and thee when we are absent one from another”. The motif was markedly popular during the Victorian and early Edwardian era to describe the emotional bond between close relatives or lovers who were about to be separated by a catastrophic event such as war or for those individuals who lost a significant other through death.

This example of an 18k yellow gold ring is characteristically broad in width yet has a slight taper towards the back making the ring particularly comfortable to wear. The front is emblazoned in large uppercase letters spelling out MIZPAH. Vertically ribbed detailed perimeters band the outer edges and of English origin.
