Mizpah jewellery is steeped in tradition and history and is wonderful that it transcends all religions and was a talisman of sorts wishing a safe return for someone about to go on a voyage and was very popular in the late Victorian and Edwardian era’s such as this delightful antique 9ct rose gold Mizpah brooch.

This wonderful Mizpah brooch was made around 1900 and measures 3.3cm in length by 1.8cm wide at its widest part in the middle and is of course designed as two romantic love hearts.
Hand engraved across the hearts is the typical Mizpah inscription “The Lord watch between thee and me when we are absent one from another”.
In the centre is the word “Mizpah” and this brooch also has a delightful floral design going across which adds so much charm and character that is so often found in antique jewellery.
Mizpah jewellery is such a glimpse back into the past and had so much love associated to it, and this is a very attractive Mizpah brooch all the more wonderful as it is made in rose gold which has such a terrific warm colour to it.
