    I realized this must be a rare piece as it it had some points which are easy to see. When Sherman used the rare large stones he used around 15, yes 15, prongs to hold the large stones and also the smaller stones have 4 prongs holding the stones as Sherman DID NOT use glue at all in his rhinestone creations. With all those prongs used to hold the stones the work here was intense. The cost was expensive but it is a harder set to aquire, and much desired by collectors !~

    The construction is complicated and with the rare purple and larger oval stones using all the many prongs the set would have been made in smaller numbers, with all the intensive labour this set commanded, the price would have been higher also. These days such a set would be hard to reproduce in any number and quite expensive to manufacture !~

    What I am left with to say is "absolutely breathtaking !" This extraordinary necklace is Sherman at its best. Gorgeous cut larger stones used in purple surrounded by dozens of irridescent blue smaller stones in floral sprays. Usually Sherman might have used one grouping of stones like this to make one of his necklace sets, but in this case seven - unheard of !~ This necklace is one of his most impressive and shouts Simply Fabulous. Done in his best rhodium plating. I have had the smaller sets before in purple with green. There is one in the book of one that is similar but not quite the same. The pink box is one of my favourites.

      Phil it literally takes my breath away ! I think it looks like Queen Elizabeth's family jewels . This is surely a true work or art and beauty . Much love xoxo If I didn't know better the large stones look like grade A+ Tanzanite .
    2. Newfld Newfld, 3 years ago
      Purple majesty! Unbelievably beautiful, regal set. As Mani said, this could easily be part of the Queen's crown jewels. Just when I think I've seen your finest, you come along with something more spectacular & amazing!

    8. racer4four racer4four, 3 years ago
      Wow Phil, another breathtaking set.
      I find it hard to believe this is considered costume jewellery, the design and making are incredible.
      Your Sherman collection continues to astound.

      There’s simply no words to describe how this beauty makes me feel. What an absolutely stunning set!!! I could stare at her for days. Great addition!!!
    10. Daisy1000 Daisy1000, 3 years ago
      An amazing set. Wonderful acquisition to your collection. What size are those individual large oval stones in/and their settings, may I please ask. Necklace in the box does provide some understanding. Breathtaking, for sure.

      OMG!!! And in MY favorite color too. Good looking out to catch this one! Just recently I have been giving the jewelry with the pretty stones a little closer look because of you and your collection. It's very possible for me to find them where i go as most of the donations come from the homes of Judges and the like. The place is right around the corner from the courthouse here and even though the girls that work there have caught on pretty good, they definitely have not caught everything by far.

      I simply don't know how or why Sherman is considered "costume" jewelry. In my opinion, it exceeds the beauty of any Channel, Dior etc... by far. Ken has shown that Trifari has many more gorgeous pieces than i ever knew as well but Sherman is like no other!!!
    18. courtenayantiques courtenayantiques, 3 years ago
      Wow, drop dead gorgeous, this has to be the nicest set of Sherman I've ever seen!!

      Phil - Read that you may be facing more hospital time. I hope to hear better news soon.

      Yesterday evening was jewelry research, this morning's been lamp research. You have brilliant (unintentional pun) collections for both! And............I noticed you have a "Prong" collection.

      My best wishes to you.

      I think it’d be hard to find an example of Sherman jewellery that is more over-the-top magnificent than this. Those purples—!! Congratulations on an extraordinary find.
