Mizpah Jewelry For Couples
….the most loving symbol you can give to another.
What better way to stay close to each other, even when you are apart? Mizpah is worn by a couple to show a loving bond between them when they are separated. The words for Mizpah originated in Genesis 31:49 of the Bible and are engraved on a broken gold or silver coin, on which the words are written, “The Lord watch between me and thee while we are absent one from another.” It is broken jaggedly down the middle and each person wears their own half. Symbolically, the words are only completed when the two halves are brought together.

Mizpah Is Meaningful
This 14K gold Mizpah coin is one of the most meaningful gifts you can give to another. Whether it’s your husband or wife, your sweetheart, or a son or daughter, when they’re away from you they feel still connected and close to you, knowing that you’re wearing half of this coin.
How Did Mizpah Begin?
The story from the Bible (Genesis Chapter 31, Verse 49) says that Jacob and his father-in-law Laban, had an argument, and Jacob took his family and left Laban’s house. Laban pursued them and there could have been a family tragedy, until the two men decided to build a stone Mizpah (Hebrew for watchtower) between their two lands, as a symbol of a bond and trust between them. Today, the symbol has come to mean sanctuary, and safety, and a belief that the amulet or charm gives protection to the wearer. More than that, it has come to celebrate the bond between those we love when they are away from us. Military members often wear half the Mizpah, while a family member or loved one wears the other half at home. Often, there are also firemen and policemen who wear, or carry in their pocket, half the coin.
