    Applying unconventional materials in jewelry making have been a signature of Seaman Schepps style. Since 1940s, such media as exotic wood, shell, rock crystal along with the precious stones have found a perfect place in the whimsical Schepps creations. Most of the time his pieces are chunky and featuring oversized details. The brand has specialized in making massive bangles, large curbside link necklaces and sculptural brooches.
    Vintage Seaman Schepps jewelry design is based on multiple adoptions and rearrangements of the existing styles. For instance, the Maltese cross brooches and earrings came from Verdura. Wide cuff bracelets were inspired by Belperron. But the House designers don’t just repeat someone’s ideas. Seaman Schepps has its own distinct character stated in the unique color combinations and unusual cuts.
    As to the exotic materials, Schepps was inspired to implement them while being on his trips to Hong Kong. He spotted coral branches, carved ivory, architectural ornaments, and many other features of the Oriental aesthetics. Later each of those elements were incorporated in iconic Schepps jewelry.

    About vintage brooches:

    Since we started making our very first steps into the jewelry world, vintage brooches and pins have always been our favorite pieces. Wearing a brooch is a smart, unique way to express your personality and style. Pin it to your lapel, scarf or a bag, and with just one brooch alone you can create the whole new fashion piece out of any garment or accessory. Some brooches could be worn as pendants, so you get two pieces in one. A brooch is an amazing jewel that is fun, elegant and expressive at the same time.

    About Vintage jewelry:

    Vintage jewelry is something we can talk about for days. Since the subject is that big and has multiple aspects to discuss, we’d like to focus on the most important parts of it. So, what is vintage jewelry? Why it’s so appealing? And how to buy your vintage jewelry online?

    In the industry, different sellers and makers have different opinions on the time period when vintage jewels were made. Here at Nadine Krakov, we consider vintage as anything being made between 50 and 100 years ago. Therefore, all jewelry produced from 1930 to 1980 called vintage. This time frame is comprised of  Art Deco , Retro and styles Mid-Century

    Why do we love vintage jewelry so much? It’s all about the quality of making and – of course – the look.

    Vintage pieces were mostly made by hand or at least hand-finished while modern jewels are mainly cast. As the lifestyle back in the days was much slower, jewelry makers literally had more time in their hands. Skilled craftsmen honed their craft and reputation. They couldn’t allow a flimsy, poorly done piece to ruin that. Mass market jewelry didn’t exist at that time. Each little detail of a piece was executed thoughtfully and with the high quality in mind.

    How to shop your vintage jewelry online? Ask questions about maker’s marks and hallmarks, request a video of the piece, and show it to your jeweler. The easiest way to be confident with your purchase is to find a trustworthy, reputable seller. And if you are happened to be in Beverly Hills area, just google “vintage jewelry near me”, find Nadine Krakov Collection store and stop by for a good chat with a sip of champagne.
