An absolutely MASSIVE rendition of Halley's comet, which can be seen in the skies above the earth every 74 to 79 years. Sightings of the comet have been recorded in history since 240 BCE, but it was British astronomer Edmund Halley who gave the comet its name in 1705. Halley realized it was the same celestial entity whose passage had been noted by the ancient Greeks, Babylonians, and medieval English, and he correctly predicted its return in the year 1835. This jewel was made to commemorate that specific sighting of the comet. Made in silver and rose cut diamonds with several visible (and very cool) structural repairs on the back, it's the largest we've ever seen, or even imagined we ever would see. Would work as a brooch or a hairpiece.
