A favorite of the world’s A-list, gracing pop stars, supermodels and world-class athletes alike, Jacob & Co. intuits the magic formula for red carpet chemistry: more is more. White and colored diamonds of sensational proportions, as well as other precious gemstones, give tangible form to irreverent designs that provide an elegant look in conjunction with a sly wink. Sublimely matched sets of jewelry confirm the jeweler’s bona fides, while unique pieces assert the irrepressible personality of Jacob Arabo, the brand’s founder and guiding force. Haute jewelry with audacious designs to match the stunning gemstones within: such is the calling card of Jacob & Co. jewelry.
Jacob & Co. is world-renowned for the exceptional gemstones the jeweler sources for its creations. One ravishing necklace, the Riviera, metaphorically captures the endless days of dazzling sunlight on the Côte d’Azur. For the Riviera, nearly 40 yellow diamonds link up in an almost invisible, yellow-gold setting. While each individual diamond gleams splendidly, together the captivating array of stones weighs over an astonishing 160 carats.
The vivid colors of other precious stones exert an equally powerful force upon the imagination at Jacob & Co. Emeralds, rubies and sapphires of all colors, and in outrageous sizes, push us to reconsider what we thought we knew about haute jewelry, especially when perfectly matched stones combine to create breathtaking suites of necklaces, earrings and bracelets.
Keenly interested in other fields in addition to jewelry, Jacob looked to the world of fashion for the superlative Rare Touch collection. The touch of an impeccable diamond is rare indeed, especially when it is just one glimmer in a golden mesh that mimics the soft drape and feel of cloth. Starting with a chic glove that “laces” up the back of the hand, the Rare Touch collection has expanded to include earrings and a stunning choker, each piece meticulously crafted to ensure the casual flexibility and strength of the world’s most opulent fabric.
Jezebel ruby and diamond earrings by Jacob & Co.
With a Biblical name and undeniably Eastern influences, the Jezebel collection evokes an ancient world of abundance and hanging gardens, while incorporating geometric and interlocking patterns of the Art Deco era. The collection’s exquisite headdress lets diamonds flow like water down the forehead in a display that confirms the regal feeling of this collection, while the earrings, available in a white diamond version or glinting with multicolored sapphires, emphasize the bold self-confidence of the woman who chooses to wear them. A subtle Jacob & Co. logo integrated into the mount emphasizes a link between past and present luxury.
