Victorian Double Heart Mizpah Necklace Rose Gold

I remember exactly where I was when I found this one. It was early, as most shopping days are, at the fairgrounds of the gigantic Newark Antiques fair north of London. I came prepared, with a mug of black coffee and a lemon slice from the Café nearby. It was spring, so a jacket was required, I donned my long black trench, feeling very Sherlock Holmes, on a mission. My mission ended abruptly as I was distracted by a stall laden with Victorian goodies, including this very necklace.

This antique Victorian necklace was handcrafted around 1890 in England. It features a double heart motif tied together with a bow, with two doves holding a flower. The romantic word, “MIZPAH” is featured front and center and the bible verse it’s based off of is engraved on the hearts. The front of the necklace measures 17 x 37 x 7 mm. This piece weighs 2.0 grams. It bears the gold purity mark, “9ct” and a maker’s mark that reads, “W.Bros”. Most likely this piece started life out as a brooch and chain and they were married to make this beautiful and very wearable necklace, both are period pieces.

You never know what you’re going to find when shopping in London, but, my oh my, do I have such good luck!
