This exceptional antique comet brooch has been crafted in 14ct yellow gold with a silver setting.

The antique brooch has a pierced decorated, stylised design modelled in the form of Halley's comet (This brooch commemorated the passing of Halley's comet in 1910).

The brooch features a cabochon star ruby* collet set within a ribbed 14 ct yellow gold frame representing the comets head.

The sweeping comet tail emanates from the star ruby and is ornamented with twenty, silver set, Old European diamonds.

The tail terminates with six further Old European cut diamonds claw set within silver star settings creating an impressive shooting star effect.

This impressive brooch is supplied with an independent diamond grading report card.

This brooch has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as 14ct gold and silver.

Note Star Rubies are beautiful gemstones that display a six-ray star that seems to glide magically across the surface of the gem when the latter is moved. This six-ray star is caused due to an optical phenomena known as "Asterism". The term "Asterism" is derived from the Greek word "aster", which means star, so asterism is commonly referred to as "star" or "star-effect". In simple words, asterism is a star-shaped light effect across the surface of gemstones.


This antique brooch is fine quality, set with an impressive cabochon star ruby and very high colour graded old cut diamonds.

The comet brooch is a very good gauge of gold and in excellent condition.

Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this fine example of antique jewellery/estate jewelry.
