Isaac Manevitz, sole designer and founder of luxury jewelry brand Ben-Amun, established himself as an innovator in the fashion industry more than 30 years ago. With his exquisite line of hand-crafted one-of-a-kind accessories, he has long been celebrated for staying ahead of the trend. Ben-Amun (pronounced ben-AH-moon) is named after the designer’s eldest son Ben, and Tutankhamun, the King of Isaac’s homeland of Egypt.
A vast favorite with top fashion insiders, celebrities and professional women alike, Ben-Amun has accumulated an impressive roster of A-List consumers and collectors from former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis to Kate Moss. Over time, Ben-Amun has been prominently featured in key influential fashion publications such as Vogue, W, ELLE, Harper’s Bazaar, Vanity Fair and Marie Claire.
Ben-Amun has also made its mark on the runway. Isaac regularly works with a large number of designers to accessorize top fashion shows each season. Style icons including Calvin Klein, Donna Karan and Ralph Lauren have all turned to Isaac for his artistic vision and technical wizardry. Recent collaborations have included design and production of jewelry for Michael Kors, Tory Burch and Cynthia Steffe.
Born in Cairo, Isaac is the son of the jeweler to the royal court of King Farouk. Apprenticing under his father as a young man, Isaac was once quick to discover he had a knack for the meticulous technique and craft of creating fine jewelry. After immigrating to the USA in the 1960s, and serving in the USA military, he pursued his interest in sculpture and design and earned a degree in fine art from Brooklyn College.
Isaac brings his love of art to his collections by working with fine, abnormal materials such as lucite, pewter, glass and crystal to create unique, innovative and inspirational designs. Ben-Amun jewelry will also be characterized as “wearable art” – bold, interesting and observation-making. All Ben-Amun pieces are handcrafted in Isaac’s factory in New York’s iconic fashion district.
Isaac is a dedicated father to two sons and grandfather to three, whom he enjoys teaching the sculpting trade. His wife for over 40 years, Regina Manevitz is co-owner of Ben-Amun and regularly serves as the designer’s muse.
A well respected member of the CFDA, Isaac continues to garner international praise for his work and is involved in every aspect of the brand’s success. His timeless and fresh collections continue to evolve and impress the industry year after year.
