Description

Delightful Edwardian Silver MIZPAH brooch which we have reworked into a more contemporary necklace. MIZPAH was a common theme/message worked into Victorian and Edwardian jewellery, and was used to proclaim the love and care of parted lovers. The word “Mizpah” has an orginal biblical origin from Genesis and means 'may the lord watch between me and thee when we are absent one from another”. A lovely antique piece, this brooch has pretty forget me not floral detailing to further enhance its charm and sentiment.

Size:

The necklace is 17.5" in length and the MIZPAH brooch piece measures 46mm wide and 15mm in height.

Finer Details

This piece is in good antique condition. We can tell it dates to the late Victorian/Edwardian era as although there is no hallmark for the year, the makers mark has been stamped onto the rim of the back of the brooch. The mark is 'RJW' which stands for Richard John Wakefield, a famous Birmingham jeweller from the popular quarter, based in Tenby Street North. He operated there between the 1880s until around 1920. We have reworked this piece as a necklace using a 16" silver belcher chain inkeeping with the style of the period. This makes the total length of the necklace 17.5", which is a fine length to wear just below the collarbone.
