1) This is a longer style statement necklace mini parure by Sherman. The flower brooch, uncommon as part of a Sherman parure, is a pleasant surprise. The colours are fuchsia and fuchsia AB. The many-pronged stones of the necklace are uncommon. I understand the present colloquialism for these is “Tiffany prongs.” I further understand the many-prong design dates this necklace as an early post-AB piece — not long after 1955. The many-prong designs were very expensive to produce. These pieces are in rhodium and in perfect mint condition. May 1, 2021.
2) Adding a photo of Sherman Flowers “for summer” — small flower brooch and earring set — to fill some space in this post. Photo Credit: Anne O’Sullivan. Jul 26, 2021. (I will add sizes and take my own photos after my hand heals.)
I found this set in rural Quebec, but the owner wouldn’t ship it to me. A fellow Sherman collector who lives in Quebec actually drove hundreds of kilometres to the owner’s house to pick it up, and the same hundreds of kilometres to return home. Wow! Amazingly nice lady. I thank her.

4) The last amazing Sherman Daisy brooch and earrings set is in japanned black. All pieces marked. Mint. This isn’t a small set, and when out on display in my jewelry area, it has a lot of presence that seems to make it larger than it is; but it is not part of the massive Sherman design group that includes the “Elizabeth Taylor style” necklaces and the giant pinwheels. Brooch — 2 3/8” x 2 1/8”; earrings — 1” round. August 6, 2021.
