    BLACK JAPANNED BROOCH BY SHERMAN, PROBABLY 1960's obtained Jan 25, 2020

    This vintage Sherman brooch features three, centrally placed, facetted oval rhinestones that are each 11/16” long – huge for Sherman brooch stones! I like to think of them as trillium or trapezoidal cuts. They anchor three individual pattern parts that make up the full swirl. Each third of the whole pattern includes one oval stone, five brilliant-cuts in 5/16”, ¼” and 3/16” diameters. As well,seven marquise-cut stones in 9/16” lengths help create the illusion of a moving swirl!

    Some of the stones had a dozen prongs which means it was time intensive, hence costlier to produce. This was a more interesting brooch and probably the closest I will get to the Rock of Gibralter! Sherman may have made a fair amount of Jewellery using black stones and for some reason I like the brooches better than the bracelets which I have around 5 of the black bracelets.

      Stunning...as always!
      I see the multi- prongs on the chatons, they are staying put!
      I always try to picture a piece on clothing ( of mine, lol)
      This would look lovely on a white winter wool coat!
      Never cease to amaze Phil...

      I love the sparkling black. Makes me think of victorian jewelry and can see that black jewelry will be popular again and again and again. There is something about that is unresistable.

      This is a wonderful piece! I have its little sister: Same shape but mine is small, flat, and has little personality - LOL. I will post mine when I have a chance.

      I am not knowledgeable about Sherman designs but I guess he made some of his pieces not only in different colours and settings but also in a different sizes and variations?

      I have seen only few of the truly magnificent Sherman pieces like yours. They usually look even more impressive when you see them in real life. Enjoy its beauty and craftsmanship!

    16. Mrstyndall Mrstyndall, 12 months ago
      Lovely piece, Phil! The variation of cut and stones make this really stand out!
    17. PhilDMorris PhilDMorris, 12 months ago
      Thank you Broochman, but alas there are too many collectors and I have not the biggest collection or the best by far, but what I can tell you is that every sherman collector probably has pieces that no one else may have as Sherman did a lot of colour combinations, some exceedingly rare !~
