At the centre is a 13.33 rough pink diamond crystal representing the comet with a cascade of natural white pear, marquise and round brilliant cut diamonds that symbolise the stars, planets and moons of our galaxy set into a waterfall of chains to the front representing the orbits of the planets. Straight falling lines of chain draping down the back reflect the grid lines of our Earth. Each diamond set into the necklace possesses natural strong fluorescence that lights up the darkness of the night sky under black light. Total diamond weight of the design equals 166ct.
