    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, 8 months 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!

    9. racer4four racer4four, 8 months 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!!!
    11. Daisy1000 Daisy1000, 8 months 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.
    12. kyratango kyratango, 8 months ago
      Absolutely GORGEOUS!!! Phil, your collection is truly top of the best!
    13. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 8 months ago
      I go away for a couple days and look what I missed!
      This set is spectacular! ( understatement) The regal colors and size of the stones takes this set to the stratosphere! Remember the scene from “Pretty Woman” when he gives her that amazing necklace to wear? This could be that necklace!
      You never cease to amaze Phil!

      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!!!
    21. courtenayantiques courtenayantiques, 8 months ago
      Wow, drop dead gorgeous, this has to be the nicest set of Sherman I've ever seen!!

      Hi Phil! Hope all is well with you! I came to your page and picked this gorgeous piece...again! It's just beautiful and I always love it when you have the box as well. I think that just makes it that much more special! xoxo

      Thanks Share, the pink box is one of the more rare boxes of Sherman, love to you Sue.

      When looking at jewelry here on CW, you have to take the time to zoom in, and really look.
      The prongs on this set are dogtooth, which makes any piece more lovely. Yes, the work involved in a set like this is staggering. I really have respect for the stone setters of days gone by, their work is unsurpassed by any jewelry “trash”( contemporary) made today..
    30. Newfld Newfld, 3 months ago
      Phil.your collection is so, so awesome, the most fabulous Sherman jewelry of anyone. I read your comment about being in the hosp, please get well soon we all miss you a bunch, sending good vibes your way
