Dark Siam and Dark Siam AB Sherman jewellery is among the most sought by current Sherman collectors. Dark Siam and Light Siam and their AB coordinates are sometimes stated to be the most “impactful” of Sherman stone colours. As a DS and DSAB set, these items fall within the categories of impactful and sought after Sherman —with the further (yet frequently discovered on Dark Siam) desired addition of japanned backing. All pieces are marked Sherman, in raised rectangular cartouches on the brooch and necklace; stamped in the metal of the earrings and bracelet. This Dark Siam with Siam AB was somewhat difficult to photograph — the non-AB pieces appeared lighter than they truly are, so I want to say that the colours of the set in the original Sherman box are closest to true, and the colours when on the black display are somewhat too light — reflection from the AB stones caused photographic “lightening” of the non-AB stones. I have added the love-ly Sherman heart to this grouping as found ... because, well, it is still love-ly February. I wear all of these pieces.
