Benjamin Black was founded by Benjamin Clark and Amy Cunningham in 2013. Having both worked in the jewellery industry - Benjamin as a trade certified manufacturing jeweller and Amy in sales/marketing - the couple decided to combine their efforts and start their own business.
Benjamin Black was born with a vision to help people leave their legacy, through the creation of beautiful, handcrafted jewellery. There are now three jewellers working in the company led by Joel Whitwell - a talented trade certified manufacturing jeweller who has been with Benjamin Black since 2016.
In the design department is the wonderful Katy Sinnott, who manages the laser engraving process and customer enquiries along with Jason Potts, who also has a flare for design.
Amy and Benjamin manage the business along with their sister brand, Black Matter, which has a flagship store in Auckland, and their busy family Benjamin Black has won many awards over the years, ranging from Delloite Fast 50 Rising Star (one to watch) Award, GEM Retail Hotlist Best Provincial Retailer and Young Business Person of the Year Award. Signet Rings by Benjamin Black has been a natural progression that aligns with Benjamin Black’s company values. A signet ring is a symbol of family, love and memories. Creating precious symbols to be treasured forever is an honour. Thank you for sharing in the journey.
