    This is the brooch which matches the last post, I wanted to post it since I got it in Jan or so in 2021 from cornydeb. It matches the earrings I last posted and it may be the most desired brooch that Sherman ever made ! In this colour they must have made a fair share, but they are quite hard to find these days with so many people wanting one. They come up for sale rarely. The brooch is set with deeper siam red colours and some abing and the brooch has a black Japanned back. It is roughly 4 tiers of stones and the crown is only about 1/4 of an inch but packs in 19 tiny stones. It takes a bigger box or showcase, and is higher than pretty much any other Sherman piece !

    This magnificent piece is almost 3 inches wide and one of Sherman's widest. It is an essential piece if you are collecting Siam Red Black Japanned Sherman pieces for a collection of them. A good buy considering the earrings cost !~

      Spectacular & gorgeous siam red Sherman brooch, the tiered navette design is awesome! Together with those beautiful matching earrings, this glorious set is a sheer joy to behold

      Red jewelry being a favorite of mine, this is quite “the piece”.
      Tell me, where did the term “Siam Red” come from? Is it a Sherman term or is it just from collectors as we call such crystals…like “Montana Blue, or “Colorado Topaz”?
      Tiered jewelry are works of art, this masterpiece belongs right where it is, in Phil’s collection!
      Let’s hope no one asks to buy it!!! ( so rude)

      Thank you Eileen, I believe it came from the finishes that Siam pieces such as bracelets and earrings they made in Siam used. The 2 are crimson and black and the Siam finishes are particularly for instance the deepest of red for the Siam stones and finishes they used. The stones are no longer made from my understanding from someone who does a lot of jewellery stone replacement for our Sherman in Canada. When you see Red Siam, they used a regular red crimson colour and also a colour that needs its own description it is so deep a red !~

      Sometimes using different lights I notice on some pieces esp with smaller stones, the stones can almost look black to the eye !~
    5. PhilDMorris PhilDMorris, 8 months ago
      If you buy Gold or Rhodium backed pieces they particularly used a lot of lighter Red
      or Crimson stones also !~

      So lovely! I am sure that most people keep their Siam Red rhinestones because the color is amazing.
