DEEP SIAM RED SHERMAN BRACELET W/ ALTERNATING ROWS OF 3 AND 5 STONES
Acquired January 30, 2020.
Over the past 5 years I should have had this bracelet but something always seemed to go wrong. One person had posted an unmarked set last year and said that I should have her bracelet and offered it to me for $200 which I accepted. The next email came saying that she thought after talking to some Sherman collectors that she could make $500. That was a little bit much I thought for unsigned Sherman so I had to wait until the 3rd week of January 2020 for it to happen.
I think that this design in particular is a have to have design that every Sherman collector should have, particularly because it is a larger piece where the colours can really pop ! The deep Siam Red colour is one of Sherman's essential colours and the colour which became his trademark colour. Pretty much all his pieces which are all Siam Red have some arrangement of deep Siam and AB'd Siam stones placed strategically in each piece. By the time this jewellery became so popular, his jewellery had become legendary !~
