Our Story - Isaac Manevitz

The Founder

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
