Quite the rare and hard to find Victorian Sterling Silver ‘Mizpah’ ring with full hallmarks for Birmingham 1887.
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 very finely textured background, simple detail to the shoulders to a tapering shank.
At 134 years of age this marvellous sentimental ring has another 100 years or more and just waiting to find its forever home.
History of Mizpah
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.
