Richard Benaim

Richard began his career in the jewellery industry in 1969, working part-time in a jewellery factory while finishing school.

“While at the time, it was not my intent on staying in the jewellery business, somehow I find myself still in it.”

TV Jewellery

While employed by a company that was supplying most of the TV Shopping Networks in Canada & the US, Richard was always behind the scenes creating products. In 1998 he was put on air as a guest on the Nashville Home Shopping Network, followed by the Canadian Shopping Channel, which eventually lead to his own shows! By 2008 Richard began selling his own products on The Australian Shopping Network, as well as on his own show, Richard Benaim Designer Jewellery Collection.


In 2002, Richard decided to start his own company. With the help of The Shopping Channel, who supported him by featuring him as a Jewellery Expert on their channel, Richard represented his own line, as well as guesting shows for other vendors.

Since then, Richard has produced quite an extensive jewellery line, and strives to stay ahead of the trends- whether with designs, or partnering with stone cutters and designers to come up with new cuts of gemstones.

Richard & Co

In 2014 Richard opened a jewellery boutique in Hamilton, Ontario. Richard & Co offers a large selection of new, unique, and modern silver jewellery collections from Italy and China. He also designs and creates custom diamond jewellery in gold & platinum.
