A very large vintage 1980s brooch styled as a comet with a vivid lime green peridot surrounded by opals, and trails of filigreed white gold and opals. The opals and peridot are of exceptional quality. Handmade in 18K white gold.
Since the 18th century, the passing of Halley's comet has inspired jewelry makers. It's likely this brooch was made when it last passed in 1986. The next apparition is in 2061.
