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 charming three color gold Mizpah ring is hand crafted in 18 karat gold. It was made in Chester, England in 1876 and is fully hallmarked including the makers mark ‘J.S’. This ring measures 8.2 mm north to south and 19.2 mm across, it sits 1.4 mm off the finger and narrows to 2.5 mm at the back of the band. This ring is a size 7.25 but could be resized to suit, it weighs 3.5 grams.
I just fell in love with this sentimental sweetheart of a ring!
