This upscale American design house has been ensconced in its Park Avenue digs for the past 50 years, providing lovers of the sea (and of luxury) with bracelets, necklaces, and dainty shell earrings. Maxine Cheshire, the Washington Post’s longtime society columnist, dubbed Schepps “America’s court jeweler” in the fifties because his clients included Roosevelts, Rockefellers, DuPonts, and the British royal family. All of the eye-catching offerings are rendered in 18-karat gold and precious and semiprecious stones.
