|Shell Earrings Inspired by Seaman Schepps|
American jewelry company Seaman Schepps is a rags to riches story. The founder, Seaman Schepps, was an immigrant who grew up on the lower east side of Manhattan. He founded his jewelry business in 1904. By the 30's, 40's and 50's, his chunky style of jewelry, like his signature shell earrings were all the rage with the editors of Vogue and Harpers Bazaar. Women flocked to the store. Katherine Hepburn and other celebs wore Seaman Schepps.
