    I got this brooch at a garage sale. It is so pretty. I was wondering if anybody might know the value of this item? It is made by Ben-Amun.

      Nice find, I cant remember where I saw info on this designer but I think his pieces bring a nice price.

      Hi,
      Try googling Ben-Amun jewelry. Some pretty interesting stuff comes up!
      And vintagemad is right,some of their pieces bring big prices!

      Any idea what kind of stones are in this brooch? I like pretty but don't really know my stones.lol

      Ben Amun jewelry of that kind usually has glass stones or crystal, not gems.
    8. wiggy, 10 years ago
      I didn't think they were gems, but I'm embarrassed to say that I wouldn't know the correct term for stones like these. I just started collecting costume jewelry and am learning. Any info is welcome.

      gosh they r so very pretty! I myslf have been collecting brooches 15 years. I start out collecting them when I worked at the local dry cleaner, you be suprised about what left in and on clothing. of all said and done at the day u got many leftover u done where come from ,we them keep for 90 days i got quite a few of them that way. Yard sales,thift shops, and gifts for people. Here and there. I have a few like your, give few day and i will them if you would like me to. I dont why i love brooches but I m amazed by them. By the way, this web site is really great.

      Did some research & found this information:
      History: More than twenty years ago, Isaac Manevitz, the son of a jeweler for Egypt's royal family, began a fabulous line of designer jewelry called Ben-Amun. Pronounced ben-AH-moon, the company is named after the designer's eldest son (Ben), and the King of Egypt (Isaac's homeland) named Tutankhamun. Ben-Amun lines were popular among top fashion editors, who frequently feature his designs on the covers and pages of publications such as Glamour, Vogue, Elle, Mademoiselle, and others. He is still in business.
      Also found a website for the company:
