Ben-Amun (pronounced Ben-AH-moon) designs and creates jewelry in the Garment District of New York City for stylish women to feel beautiful and unique through a deep knowledge of jewelry history and a keen eye for where fashion is headed.
Isaac Manevitz is the groundbreaking designer and founder of famed luxury jewelry brand Ben-Amun. Isaac is a pioneer of the statement-making jewelry movement made famous in the early 80s, and has been creating his signature designs for more than 30 years. To this day he designs and manufactures everything in his studio in the heart of the Design District in NYC.
A pure artist at heart, Isaac works in an array of mediums – when he isn’t designing jewelry he is studying and collecting historic paintings or handcrafting unique organically designed sculptures. He has an unparalleled talent in mixing unexpected materials such as Lucite, pewter, glass and crystal to create innovative and inspired designs – his background in sculpture brings a truly unique perspective and volume to his signature pieces.
“I’m inspired by strong, independent women,” describes Isaac of his process. “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.”
Long celebrated for staying ahead of the trend, Ben-Amun has accumulated an impressive roster of A-list celebrities and fashion icons and influencers. His bold designs have decorated the varied wardrobes of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Kate Moss, Blake Lively, Debra Messing, Kate Beckinsale and Rihanna and Isaac has collaborated with Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, Oscar de la Renta and Ralph Lauren in years past. Ben-Amun is consistently featured on the style dictating pages of Vogue, ELLE, Harper’s Bazaar, Vanity Fair and W.
A well-respected member of the CFDA, Isaac continues to garner global praise for his artistic vision and technical wizardry. To this day he is involved in every single aspect of the brand’s vision, production and its subsequent success. Ben-Amun’s timeless yet fresh collections will continue to evolve and impress the industry for years to come.
