Jewelry Is Our Passion

We love to wear it, make it, fix it, sell it, look at it and talk about it. Our focus has always been on unique pieces by fine jewelry designers, nautical inspired collections, fine designer handbags, wallets and unique homewares and gift items. If you haven’t visited us yet – come see what you’re missing!

Who Is Penny James?

After years of happily creating jewelry to showcase in Maertens Fine Jewelry & Gifts, owner Heather Maertens started an exciting new journey in 2015. Penny James Jewelry Co. features handcrafted designs inspired by the beauty of the Chesapeake. Penny pieces can be found in boutiques up and down the east coast, however the entire collection will always be available at Maertens.
