Luster earrings by Jacob & co: a cascade of diamonds that sway ♦
Fanciful, a bit strange for jewelers with long pedigrees, loved by rap artists: Jacob Arabo and his Jacob & co constitute a unique case in the world of luxury. And after years he is still able to amaze, as for creations like the Luster earrings, which sparkle with 200 baguette-cut diamonds hanging individually (from 23.53 to 26.89 carats in total), on white gold and with over 400 white diamonds for the pavé. Furthermore, the earrings are light and sway with every movement of the wearer, with a captivating effect.
The jeweler’s success, in fact, is due precisely to these unusual creations. And the designer’s story is also unique. After graduating in jewelry design in 1981, in New York, Arabic opened a small shop in the city’s Diamond District, where he began designing for private clients and jewelers. In 1986, Arabo opened his company, called Diamond Quasar, and began designing with his label, called Jacob & Co. The jewels, very lively, initially attracted the attention of singer Faith Evans, who later her husband, the rapper BIG, was brought to the boutique. Word of mouth has begun in New York’s musical environment and Jacob’s jewels have become popular. Thanks to its unique products and its famous clientele, the brand has thus gained popularity, even expanding into luxury watchmaking since 2002. But without forgetting the jewels. Lavinia Andorno
