Sherman vintage jewelry

His beautiful glitzy jewelry styles of the 50s and 60s are finely crafted and highly sought after.

Whiting and Davis cameo set

This week, we have a lovely black stone cameo set by Whiting and Davis in the store.

The set includes a bracelet, a pendant necklace and clip on earrings.

The history of Whiting and Davis is fascinating and dates to the founding in 1876. Whiting and Davis were famous for their mesh handbags.

They are still making jewellery.

“Into the Fifties, Whiting & Davis’ fashion jewelry was growing in recognition as the brand remained true to their dedication to fine craftsmanship and detail. Popular styles included cameo pendants and earrings and charm bracelets”

(excerpt from “our story since 1876″ – http://www.whitinganddaviscollection.com/pages/cfWhitingAndDavisHistory.cfm)
