I love this brooch. The colors are various shades of purple, pink and clear rhinestones. the rhinestones are navettes, baguettes and round shape... I have not been able to find a mark on it and I don't know who was the maker. Any ideas?

    This is the kind of jewelry that makes me want to collect jewelry, it very much looks like the work of Sherman from Montreal who made some of the worlds best bling. I have admired his work since the 1980's when prices were quite low. Amazing piece !!~

    From that website :
    Sherman is one of those designer costume jewelry companies, who's work is recognizable from across the room.

    Gustave Sherman started producing high end costume jewelry in Montreal, Quebec, Canada in 1941. His work is characterized by best Swarovski stones, crystal beads and findings. He favored aurora borealis coatings and long marquise cut stones. Sherman used stunning navettes, chaton and baguette shaped stones with heavy plated rhodium, gold-tone or japanned settings. The settings are generally highly polished and meticulous. The stones are all prong set.

    He often used striking and vivid color combinations. Sherman parures and demi parure are highly sought after by collectors.

    Sherman Jewellery was sold through higher end jeweller's like Birks. Most pieces are signed "Sherman". We've had pieces that are unsigned with Sherman hanging tags and in Sherman boxes. There is a quite a debate about unsigned Sherman jewellery, whether or not there is such a thing. We've handled thousands of pieces of Sherman Jewellery, and are certain that unsigned Sherman jewellery is legitimate.

    I have had a few sets also of Sherman, where one piece is marked and maybe the brooch will not be or one earring marked and the other not. I have seen many sets as one of my best friends had a shop full of it. He paid high for it also.

    Wow... Thanks so much. I researched a bit and found a similar pair of earrings on ebay which was marked Sherman. Thanks again. I will mark this mystery solved.
