Antique ‘Mizpah’ Brooch
‘Mizpah’ - meaning ‘Emotional Bond’ - was often exchanged or gifted between people who were lovers or close friends and might be separated from each other for an amount of time. On one half of this brooch is engraved ‘The lord watch between me and thee when we are absent from one another’. Mizpah jewellery was first popular during the Victorian era, and then again later in the 1900s when men went off to fight in World War I.
This Vintage brooch is in wonderful condition and would make a very special gift.
