Photo Courtesy of Ben-AmunPieces by luxury brand Ben-Amun have long been mainstays in the haute jewelry world. With everything from layered necklaces to embellished pins, Ben-Amun has created statement pieces since the early 1980s, when bold, attention-demanding jewelry first became a trend. Today, the brand gives us more reasons to love it with the release of its collection for fall. In it, we see necklaces, earrings, bracelets and pins that are modernly stylish while also staying true to the aesthetic that has defined the Ben-Amun brand for decades.
The label’s designer, Isaac Manevitz, makes his pieces “wearable art” by combining his two loves of creative imagery and fine jewelry. The materials that Manevitz works with are unusual, but nonetheless luxurious— including lucite, pewter, glass and crystal. The result? Collections of interesting statement-making jewelry that you may have seen worn by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Kate Moss, Fergie, Nicki Minaj, Black Lively and Rihanna.
This season, we see a mixture of the fine metals that have become synonymous with the Ben-Amun brand and other materials that give the collection a modern feel. For example, pieces from the “Bright Beads” line utilize colored resin beads to evoke a ‘50s-era style. This particular design is available in a variety of different color combinations and silhouettes to satisfy every customer and occasion— day or night.
Pins like this Swarovsky Crystal Deco Brooch transport us immediately to The Great Gatsby era, and have us looking for a reason to throw a flapper party complete with champagne and pearls. This piece is from the “Pearl & Crystal” line, and is one example of a Ben-Amun creation that is likely to never go out of style.
Other pieces like these pastel statement earrings make a fashionable play with precious stones and bright gold metalwork. Largely inspired by nature, pieces from the “Glitz and Glam” line are enchantingly colorful with shapes that range in inspiration from flowers to feathers to leaves.
