It's been raining for two days now so I thought these pretty pink with aurora borealis Sherman rhinestone jewelry sets would be cheerful.
These large dangling pink rhinestone earrings are probably one of my favorite pair thus far. They were plucked off eBay using the instant Buy-it-Now option for a reasonable price. They are in magnificent, unworn condition. The heavy rhodium plating doesn't have a mark on it and the clips are tight. Using a combination of marquis and round shaped pink and pink aurora borealis (these reflect more of a blue) rhinestones, these measure a whopping 3 1/2" from top to bottom. I love the two-tier domed setting giving these a sparkling 3D affect.
The matching feather-like Sherman brooch is just under 2 1/2" wide and is also made in a stacked, two-tier fashion. Again, the rhodium plating is perfect with no scratches. This was purchased from the same seller after it expired on eBay without a bid. I don't know if both pieces had been originally purchased together or matched up later but they perfectly compliment one another.
The last set documented today is also pink with pink aurora borealis, however the reflection on these pieces has a more grey affect. The pretty round Sherman brooch was purchased from an antique store at a fraction of what it is worth. The open center is raised creating an almost dome affect. Sherman combined round and marquis-shaped rhinestones when designing this lovely piece.
The necklace and earrings were purchased from a local dealer at a very good price and had belonged to the wife of a prominent business owner in town.
The necklace features one large marquis shaped center rhinestone with smaller graduated marquis shaped stones on either side. Behind that are two rows of baguette rhinestones alternating with round rhinestones. Features the typical "J" hook clasp allowing for a custom fit.
The earrings are an identical match to the brooch and are just over 7/8".
All the stones in the necklace are aurora borealis while the earrings and brooch combine pink aurora borealis with pink rhinestones. Everything is set in heavy rhodium plate that is in excellent condition and all pieces are signed Sherman.
The display box is an original "Jewels of Elegance by Sherman" jewelry case which are becoming harder and harder to find.
