This is a fantastic piece of astronomical and jewelry history! The design represents and commemorates that passing of Halley's Comet in 1835.

The Georgian style is wonderfully communicated through this lovely piece, and it is perfect for any woman who loves classic antiques! The 14k yellow gold pin showcases an eye-catching paste rhinestone as the comet, which is securely mounted in the sterling silver setting. The frame surrounding the rhinestone is embellished with polished bars trailing out behind the 'comet'. This dainty piece fastens securely with a hinge pin clasp, and would look excellent on a blouse, jacket, or hat! This piece has been professionally tested for its 14k gold and sterling silver metal purity composition. There is some surface wear and patina, as can be expected with any piece from the Georgian period.

This piece measures 1 1 1/32" (26.7mm) tall 7/16" (11.3mm) wide, and weighs 3.0 grams.

This piece has not been cleaned to preserve its antique patina and is ready for immediate wear!

We guarantee this piece to be 14k gold and sterling silver as tested. Please check out the enlarged pictures. Thank you for looking and enjoy bidding!
