The exclusive preview for fine jewelry and watch designer Jacob & Co.’s new fall line could be seen sparking from the sidewalk on East 57th Street. Reminiscent of the Smithsonian’s Gem Gallery, piece after piece of elegant statement jewelry adorned the walls of the display cases in designer and founder, Jacob Arabo’s midtown Manhattan store.
Elegant models walked around the chic space wearing 1920’s inspired chandelier fan earrings from the Abanico collection, while a Columbian Emerald pendant necklace surrounded by diamonds dazzled from the window display. Another standout was the diamond linked necklace with a citrine canary yellow diamond pendant.
But the star of the show was the highly anticipated multi time zone wristwatch: The Ghost. The luxury timepiece features a black stainless steel body, vulcanized rubber strap and an interchangeable decorative front cage, available in plain black or with a combination of different metals and diamond detailing.
The most innovative feature of The Ghost is its ability to digitally display five different time zones at once and store up to 20. The watch also displays the date and time and changes display colors with the touch of a button. The Ghost holds a charge for up to two weeks and can be charged via a USB plug on the back of the watch body.
The exclusive preview for Jacob & Co’s new fall collection was nothing short of inspiring. Fans of the designer include Justin Timberlake, Mariah Carey, David Beckham, Jessica Alba, Jay Z and Madonna.
