Frugal Snob: Ben-Amun Jewelry

Odds are you’ve never heard of Ben-Amun, but if you’ve ever flipped through Vogue, Elle, Bazaar, Marie Claire, or tuned your TV on to a red carpet, you’ve likely seen pieces from the collection. The brand has been in business for over 30 years and is designed by Isaac Manevitz who works extensively with lucite, pewter, glass, and crystal which help keep his pieces looking a lot pricier than they are (few pieces are over $400 and you can get many for as little as $60). Celebs love the line because they can wear pieces without having to worry about insurance, body guards etc. when they’re doing casual on-air appearance. The line has also been used in Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, and Ralph Lauren shows. 

A lot of the pieces aren’t my style (a bit too boho), but click through the site and you’ll find some wonderful costume pieces at prices that won’t have you stressing!
