This antique 15ct Gold Halley's comet Chalcedony fob is an exemplary collectible. Engraved within the white Chalcedony is a striking and crisp portrait of the English astronomer Edmond Halley.
Edmond Halley (1656-1742) was a historic scientific figure who discovered and accurately predicted Halley's comet, a short period comet visible from earth ever 75-76 years. This entire fob is crafted in homage to Halley, and you can clearly see a petite comet engraved into the Chalcedony too. The fob itself is an elegant and refined design, that is also akin to the Art Nouveau style.
