Jacob Arabo’s passion for jewelry began early as a young boy growing up in Russia. After migrating to the United States, Jacob, age 16, enrolled in a jewelry design course to develop his natural talents. Immediately recognizing his obvious gifts and ability, his instructors encouraged him to leave the course.
Jacob was soon designing his unique pieces in New York’s famed Diamond District for a number of jewelry labels and private clients. Finally, in 1986, Jacob opened his business and began designing products under his brand, JACOB & Co. In the mid-to late1990’s, many music industry icons - as well as up and coming recording artists - were taken by Jacob’s unique creations. Personalities such as Whitney Houston and Mary J. Blige recommended Jacob to a host of their high profile male and female friends, spawning a buzz throughout the music industry which continues to resonate today.
Soon, Jacob Arabo became the go-to-guy for jewels throughout the music, entertainment, fashion and sports world, with the biggest names in the business becoming faithful clients of Jacob’s.
