Jewel of the day: Sherman bib necklace

For everyone who says it’s impossible to wear rhinestones during the day, this is what I had on the day I had my new passport photos taken. (Well, I was wearing it for something else, actually, but it didn’t occur to me to take it off.)

Sherman made some of the best and most spectacular rhinestone jewellery, pieces that have withstood the test of time. This photo has been enlarged and isn’t showing the piece to its best advantage.  But it’s still clear and sparkling, and the rhodium plated findings are still shiny and pristine.  It is featured in our book on Sherman jewellery, one of Sherman’s loveliest (and biggest!) designs.

So don’t let your vintage pieces sit in their boxes waiting for the next time you go “out.” As I said when my son was little, I remember out fondly, but I don’t get there much anymore. So I decided that every day was a good day to wear my jewelry, and I would just make my clothes suit whatever the accessory du jour was.
