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.
This wonderful Edwardian era ring was hand made in England in about 1904. It is a sterling silver beauty that measures 6.8 mm north to south and 20.5 mm across at the face, it narrows to 2.5 mm at the back of the band. This ring is marked with the Lion passant the indicates it was made in England of sterling silver and has the date letter D. It’s missing it’s city mark, likely lost to resizing over the years, but I think it was made in Chester in 1904, the makers mark of ‘L&VI’ is still visible. This ring is a size 8.5 and weighs 2.7 grams.
