Gustave Sherman was one of Canada’s finest costume jewellery designers. He began his company in Montreal, Canada, in 1941, producing high end, quality costume jewellery. He used only the best Swarovski stones, crystal beads and findings. He favoured aurora borealis coatings and long marquise cut stones.
Sherman used stunning navettes, chaton and baguette shaped stones with heavy plated rhodium, gold-tone or japanned settings. By the 1970′s the glitzy jewellery styles of the 50s and 60s had fallen from favour. Shortly thereafter that the company ceased production. In recent years the appreciation for the fine craftsmanship of Sherman jewellery has grown. Sherman’s fiery bracelets, brooches and parures are highly sought after by today’s collectors.
