Antique Victorian 18ct Yellow Gold ‘Mizpah’ Ring - 1894

Smooth buttery and very comfortable on the finger this Victorian 18ct gold ‘Mizpah’ ring is a pleasure to wear.

Full of sentimentality the Victorians would give these rings as a sign of deep friendship and love, especially between two people who were to be parted for a length of time.

With gothic style typography in raised fashion to a quite wide band at the front at 8mm to a tapering shank at the verso at 4mm.
Full hallmarked for Birmingham 18ct and date letter for 1894.
Inscribed with the original owners name inside the shank (Annie, and April 18th 1895).

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.
