Luxury Design, Past & Present
Trianon, founded in 1979 by Anthony Hopenhajm and Jay Bauer, took over Seaman Schepps in 1992.
Anthony Hopenhajm, president and CEO of both companies, is designer of most of the jewelry, the necklace on offer being a good example of his intention to create classic pieces which will always be in style:
