Edwardian Platinum Brooch with Diamonds
Edwardian Comet Brooch!
In 1910 Halley's comet appeared in the night sky and sparked a taste for comet-inspired jewelry. This platinum brooch is a particularly fine example of the Edwardian "comet craze" with four swirling comets framed by crescent moons. Similar comet-inspired jewels were created during 1834 when Halley's fiery ball had last appeared.
To add just the right touch of celestial sparkle, this platinum brooch is set with 25 glittering diamonds. The diamonds are Old European Cuts and weigh a total of approximately one carat. This elegant brooch dates from the late Edwardian, early Art Deco period - 1910 to 1920.
A close-up look shows the intricate design and small details of the crescent moons and comets. The diamonds are bead set along the sweeping curves. The edges of the brooch are milgrained for an added touch of sparkle. Small, polished platinum balls are set in the open spaces. It is in the small details that fine jewels excel!
