A sumptuous shagreen case hides this beautiful Edwardian Halley's Comet pin in sterling silver and faceted rock crystal. Georgian and victorian jewellers looked to the skies for inspiration when Halley's famous comet entered earth's orbit in 1835, and again in 1910. This resulted in stunning jewels which featured a central stone or stones, and streaking tail. This one is from our personal collection. ๐ŸŒ  #halleyscomet #halleyscometpin #halleyscometbrooch #cometbrooch #rockcrystalpin #antiquepin #antiquebrooch #edwardianpin #antiquejewelrybox #antiquejewelrylover #antiquejewelryaddiction #nearlynewvintage
