Dreamy mixed-metal “Y” necklace with 1880s “steel cup” button with crescent moon and Haley’s Comet in cut steel. Cut steel refers to small bits of faceted steel that were hand-riveted into a brass button base, a process that was used in button and jewelry making from the late 18th to the late 19th centuries.
