Ref  LF3   Stella Cometa

In the early decades of the 19th century astronomers in Britain were gripped with 'comet fever'. Halley's Comet was due to pass in November 1835, an event that occurred only once every 75 years. Halley's was the only comet visible to the naked eye from earth. The public captivation with the comet was a source of inspiration for jewellers and a variety of comet jewellery was made to celebrate its passing. This Georgian comet brooch is high carat gold, in the form of a comet with a crescent moon. It is set with natural pearls and an old-cut diamond. The brooch is 2.5 inches long and and 1 and 1/4 inches wide across the comet's tail. Fine quality, substantial and immaculate.
