The first Sherman Brooch & Earring Set became part of my collection in 2019. The stones are a pink milk glass and blue-grey-green crystal. The colour name is Denim Blue. You will note that this set has screw back earrings, which perhaps indicates this set pre-dates many of the clip on sets created in the 1950s. Another argument that supports somewhat early dating, when combined with earring style, is the lack of AB stones. The set appears to have never been worn. Stones and metal are nearly perfect. All pieces are marked Sherman.
The first set belonged to a lady in Northern Alberta, Canada who was downsizing her collection; and was kind enough to rehome certain pieces to me.
Jan 10, 2020 — I have updated this post to indicate an additional piece in the same stone combination, pale pink opague and Denim Blue rhinestones — found in the wild. I debated with myself as to whether this brooch should have a separate placement (for obvious reason); but decided not at this time.
March 22, 2020 — I have added a pink opagues with Light Rose pink crystals, newly-acquired brooch and earring set, to this group. All items are marked Sherman. All set items are in Mint condition.
