From its humbling beginnings in a small booth in New York City’s Diamond District, Jacob & Co. has grown to be a preeminent jewelry and wristwatch retailer. Inspired by the impossible, the company has been committed for more than a quarter of a century to create powerfully unique jewelry and timepiece creations. The drive and creative force of the company come from the founder, Jacob Arabo, who graduated early from a jewelry design course in 1981 in New York City and the soon founding Diamond Quasar while beginning to design under his label, Jacob & Co.
Arabo quickly garnered the attention of the music industry – R&B singer Faith Evans and Notorious rapper B.I.G. were early clients – and since then has dazzled fashion’s red carpets and cover shoots. Recognized as the “Master of World Time,” Jacob & Co.’s revolutionary timepieces and exquisite jewelry each are envisioned and crafted with meticulous care and a unique talent for creating designs that are as innovative as they are spectacular. Jacob & Co. sources singularly rare and exceptional stones from gemstones and diamonds to be merged flawlessly with the finest jewelry-making techniques and to maximize the intricately crafted masterpieces. Arabo’s avant-garde vision of watches and boundless appetite for innovation in design is balanced with the time-honored practices and traditions of the company’s Swiss watchmakers.
Jacob & Co. has five collections of timepieces in its portfolio – Grand Complication Masterpieces, High Jewelry Masterpieces, Gents Collections, Ladies Collections, and Iconic Collection – with the Grand Complication Masterpieces being the most opulent. A perfect marriage between artistry and technology, the avant-garde and Swiss engineering, the Grand Complication Masterpieces are lovely expressions bringing two worlds together.
