About Us

Bendi History

Bendi Jewelers' owner and designer Sami Nakishbendi has committed himself to design jewelry of elemental simplicity, enduring quality and beauty.

Originally from Syria, Sami came to the U.S. in 1983 to attend college at Temple University. After pursuing architecture and dentistry majors, he entered the precious metals field and began wholesaling silver and gold during the day and working on his own designs at night.

In 1997, Sami opened Bendi Jeweler's on Main Street in Manayunk for his original, custom-made designs. It was a decision that allowed him to combine his artistic approach to jewelry with a personal approach to client relationships, something he takes very seriously by having one-on-one design consultations with every customer.

"I'm not just a salesman looking to sell a piece of jewelry," says Sami, "but an artist looking to transform what's in their head into a work of art that they can wear."

I had recently taken my engagement ring to the 'best of the best' in center city and resized it down to be a full size larger than I needed- I left thinking something was wrong as the ring looked damaged but brushed it off. THANK GOD I went to Sami for the final resizing. He ever-so-nicely pointed out the damage done to the ring; cautious of bad mouthing another which I greatly respected. For half the price of the original resizing, Sami flawlessly fixed and resized the ring down and gave us a beautiful appraisal along with some fun facts about the history of the ring and it's coal region origins. We both went to pick up the ring and were in tears over the beauty he brought out in it. I look forward to working with him on my husband-to-be's wed... Read more
