Georgian Halley's Comet Garnet Earrings
Now this is a first! Halley’s Comet jewelry is usually in the form of a small brooch almost always 1-1/4 inches (3.2 cm) or less in length. This fabulous jewel is a pair of matched earrings with that motif. Each of the fiery 10k yellow gold comets sport two (2) faceted natural garnets in crimped collet mounts. Typically Georgian in construction, the gems are foiled and set closed back.
Date: Circa 1835.
Measurements: 1-1/4 inches (3.2 cm) in length including ear wire and 1 inch (2.5 cm) without by 3/8 of an inch (1.0 cm) at the widest. Weight of 2.8 grams (1.8 dwt) for the pair.
Condition: Excellent; one large garnet has an edge internal inclusion visible with a loupe; each connecting ring between the top and bottom has been reinforced; modern 14k ear wires. Was this pair originally two brooches converted? We see absolutely no evidence to support this contention on the back of the larger garnets.
