    ~ Hi CW Gang ~

    I wanted to post some pics that were taken more direct straight on. I hope that PHIL could take a closer look at it. After all, the more pics - the more it helps...... and just the shape/style/design also of the earrings and the brooch too. So does this help to confirm they are SHERMAN ?? Any extra info on this is Welcomed.

    Thanks for LOOKING // LOVING !!

    ~ Rose ~


    A Montreal company started by Gustave Sherman and in business from 1947 through 1981.The company is noted for its quality rhinestone pieces and many collectors consider Sherman to be the premier Canadian jewelry designer.


    "Jewelry marked Sherman was manufactured in Canada between 1947 to 1981 and was made using fine Austrian crystal rhinestones. Metal on these pieces can be found in rhodium or gold plate although some was also japanned. Floral, wreath, and leaf themes were a popular choice for the company although they also made abstract and figural pieces. Pink, purple, fuchsia, and red are the most sought after colors and pieces with opaque stones are generally hard to come by. Rhinestone brooch and earring sets, as well as less intricate necklaces are common. Wide glitzy bracelets are a collector favorite. You may also find crystal beaded necklaces, bracelets and earrings by this company. ****** Not all pieces are always signed so it is a good idea to familiarize yourself with comon elements and construction of this popular designer""

      Rose these are so gorgeous and that deep red is mesmerizing, it really does look Sherman style to me, and I think some of his pieces were unsigned, Phil knows & should be stopping by
    2. PhilDMorris PhilDMorris, 2 years ago
      Yes, it does look like Sherman and his bracelet is quite distinctive. It is highly unusual to see a "set" that is totally unsigned and especially with a pin and earrings. I imagine it happens however as the set appears for all intentional purposes to be by Sherman or by people who worked for him.

      Wow!!! That red! That's a wonderful set, signed or not :-D
    6. PhilDMorris PhilDMorris, 2 years ago
      It is always a good idea to ask if you can, the previous owner if the set came from the same person and if they know if they bought it from a particular store. It sounds trivial but soon pieces like this go through so many owners. Sometimes the best light is shed by asking questions - you may learn something you never thought of !~

      @Phil - The lady I bought it from had said it was her Grandmothers set that she had for years. She said it was something her Grandmother had gave her and said it is quite old and that her Grandmother always treasured it. The lady herself was older as too - so I believe she was telling me the truth. She is not a collector or antique person ( you could tell from her home ) but said she is always just trying to downsize as none of her kids wanted it. So that is all I know from her. But spoke to her right in person, and was at her home.

      Found this info [quoted from link] -

      "" Evelyn Yallen and Sandra Caldwell who co-authored the book, “Sherman Jewellery: The Masterpiece Collection” suggest that, “not all pieces in a parure [a matched set] were signed, though Gus Sherman was indeed proud of his branding and used marked boxes, cards and hang-tags prolifically.” '''

      Quoted from this link
    10. antiquerose antiquerose, 2 years ago
      I just wanted to add this quote here as FYI, that's all ...

      "" One of the most sought after styles of Sherman rhinestone jewelry is that which is set in the black japanned or "gun metal" casings. The majority of Sherman jewelry was set in shiny rhodium plate followed by gold plate, however the japanned settings are by far the most rare. Usually seen on pieces with deeper colored rhinestones like black, red and fuchsia, this unique color setting can make even the palest shades pop by providing a black outline around the rhinestones.

      The coating on a Japanned setting is done by applying a derivative of coal tar to create a matte or glossy black colored finish. First used when manufacturing mourning jewelry, this process soon found its way into many lines of rhinestone jewelry. "
