Victorian MIZPAH Ring c.1885
A fabulous Victorian Gothic MIZPAH band ring in 9ct Rose gold.
The ring has MIZPAH written in Gothic script within a textured panel set within a smooth rose gold band.
Mizpah is a Hebrew word that has come to symbolise an emotional bond between two people. The phrase, “The Lord watch between me and thee, when we are absent one from another,” immediately follows the mention of Mizpah in the book of Genesis.
Mizpah rings rose to popularity in the early Victorian era and were exchanged between close friends or family, often after a long separation. They remain popular to the current day.
Antique Mizpah rings are extremely collectable often given as a coming of age gift at Barmitzvahs and Batmitzvahs.
