This asymmetrical pin was made to commemorate the 1910 passing of Halley's comet. It has style elements that make it look like jewelry that was made for the 1837 comet, like the (faux) collet settings. But the stones' backs are open, which wouldn't have been done in 1837.
Glass or paste gems. Gold Fill and possibly silver, possibly white metal.
Just over 1" long
