Part 2. This magnificent rhinestone and pearl necklace was on page 39 of Sandra Caldwell's book and she actually sold it to me, I still can hardly believe she would part with this from her personal collection. She sent me a paper affidavit, signed paper stating that she sold this exact one photographed on page 39 of her book and that she sold it to Phil Morris of Saskatoon. Also it states that it is the exact same piece that was photographed for her book !!
I was elated to get it since it is extremely hard to get any Sherman pearl and rhinestone jewellery. The piece is all the better as the rhinestones sparkle new and no photograph can do the justice of seeing them sparkle in person. The pearls have some yellowing most probably due to age. I told Sandra I would sell them back to her if she missed them too much. So far Sandra has not called, so I am happy about that. Sandra Caldwell is co-author of " Sherman Jewellery : The Masterpiece Collection."
This piece is due to eventually go to my sister, but for now it is in my collection as I am keeping all the best examples until I finish the collection.
