Jacob Arabo, the founder and ideological inspirer of the Jacob & Co. jewelry brand, did not chase after popularity. It found him on its own, albeit not right away. In 1986 in New York, he opened his small workshop, where he simply created without paying attention to fashions and world jewelry trends.
This freedom of choice has borne its fruit, as more and more customers came into the studio, who were looking for exclusivity in jewelry, uniqueness and some kind of higher meaning. This is exactly the kind of jewellery that the jeweller Arabo made. From his school years he tirelessly studied the secrets of engraving and stone processing, as well as creating jewelry sketches. Besides, the young man was fascinated by watchmaking. The precision of mechanisms and the quality of finishes attracted him to watches, and the radiance of precious metal and stones inspired him to create unique jewelry creations.
The first Jacob & Co. watch saw the light only in 2002. And immediately got into the limelight of the famous celebrities. They sparkled on the hands of Madonna, Naomi Campbell, Elton John and Victoria Beckham. The master jewelry became popular thanks to singer Faith Evans. One day, accidentally wandering into a small jewelry store in New York, she discovered the amazing beauty of jewelry. Since then the fame of the master has spread at the speed of sound.
The signature style of the jewelry brand.
The jeweler works exclusively with precious stones. By his own admission, a semi-precious mineral will never sparkle in a piece, nor will it convey the entire palette of hues. He especially uses diamonds. Even a miniature piece shines and stands out with a bright flash, a tongue of flame. Only stones specially selected by professionals are used in the production, and some are selected for the collections over the years.
Though, most of the time, new collections feature rather big, exclusive cut stones. Each such stone is a work of art in itself. But the frame is no less magnificent: high-quality gold is used in the highest degree of skillfully cut and polished. It is this combination that allows us to enjoy unique pieces of jewelry made under the Jacob & Co. brand.
