Crafted in deeply yellow 18k gold this antique Edwardian love token ring bears the motto "Mizpah". Essentially a concept dating back to biblical times "Mizpah" refers to a sanctuary or safe haven for those one holds dear created by the watchful and beneficient eye of God. The exact biblical reference for the term is: “The Lord watch between me and thee when we are absent one from another". Measuring approximately 1/4" wide and 1.13 mm thick all around. Currently size 5 1/2, though fits like a 5 1/4 because of the width, and resizable about two full sizes. Please convo me before purchase if you are interested in our sizing service. Rings and brooches bearing the motto were often given as tokens of affection from an amorous gentleman to his lady love but also as momentos from family members or friends. Distant travel had become easier and more convenient in the latter part of the 19th century but not necessarily less dangerous. Mizpah jewelry found a niche as talisman or token pieces one could give to those beloved about to embark on a long journey or a relocation to another locale. Mizpah jewelry is sometimes confused with mourning jewelry. Although it's not necessarily meant for the bereaved the concept was often woven into mourning pieces as the idea of reconcilation in the after life was a comfort to a deeply spiritual and sentimental Victorian society. In excellent condition with a wonderful antique patina speaking to dignified age and fully hallmarked for Sheffield England, 18k gold, and a letter date that corresponds to the year 1904. ❃ The Eden Collective Ring Shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheEdenCollective?section_id=13939721&ref=shopsection_leftnav_1 ❃ We are happy to offer layaway.
