Ben Shemano Jewelry is a San Francisco-based jewelry dealer specializing in estate and custom jewelry. Founded by Ben Shemano in 2013, the company buys and sell fine jewelry, watches, diamonds, precious stones, and metals, and arranges for the design and creation of custom pieces. Ben Shemano Jewelry is a local favorite, winning a J Weekly Reader’s Choice Award for three consecutive years.
The family-run business, managed by Ben and his wife Kira, strives to offer the quality and customer service of high-end retail, at prices competitive to online shopping. “We are true jewelers in the old-school sense. We love helping people find the perfect pieces they’ll love forever, at prices that work for their budget.” In addition to retailing, Ben Shemano Jewelry also works with clients to trade in, reinvent, or sell pieces that they no longer wear.
Ben received training from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), and now serves as Vice President of the GIA Alumni Association’s San Francisco Chapter. His education and expertise in diamonds, gold, precious, and semiprecious stones gives clients the confidence to make informed decisions. “We do everything we can to make sure our clients are treated respectfully, and provided with honest options and choices,” he says.
His father, Gary Shemano, has been a longtime supporter of Hebrew Free Loan. Ben looks forward to continuing the tradition while growing his network as a new Business Circle member. “Hebrew Free Loan is such a great resource to our community,” says Ben, “and I’m happy to be a part of it.”
