I haven't bought any comet brooches in a while, but saw a few this time featuring hair work. I had not seen this in a comet brooch before, and I was fascinated. They are so lovely, and the hair work so small and intricate. This one is unmarked, but tested, 9 carat gold. It is in perfect condition and all original. This one is from the 1835 appearance of the comet, when comet brooches became quite fashionable. This is a lovely example. This piece measures 1 and 1/4 inches long, and is 1/2 inch wide. It weighs 2.4 grams.
