Isaac Manevitz, the Egyptian-born designer of Ben-Amun, has been successfully designing and manufacturing his line of high-end fashion jewelry for close to 40 years. The name Ben-Amun was inspired by the designer's eldest son’s name (Ben), and the King of Egypt (Isaac's homeland) named 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.
