Ben-Amun was founded by Egyptian born jewelry designer Isaac Manevitz. The name Ben-Amun was inspired by the designer's eldest son, Ben, and one of the former king's of Egypt, Tutankhamun. He has brought his love of sculpture to his collections by working with some of the finest and most interesting materials to create unique designs that are both modern and contemporary, yet timeless.
"I design for a woman that wants to be noticed and that can subtly command a room. The type of woman that you always remember for her poise, her sophistication and for her intellect and wit." - Isaac Manevitz
All jewelry is handcrafted by a team of skilled artisans in our New York City Garment District atelier. Our handcrafted pieces feature the highest quality of materials such as 24K gold, Majorca pearls, and Czech glass stones. Our masterful artisans work diligently to ensure each piece speaks to Isaac’s appreciation of symmetry, as not only a measure of beauty, but also balance.
