As I mentioned previously, I visited the Jacob & Co. showroom at Baselworld, the world’s largest watch and jewelry show, and saw so much sparkle from the high-carat diamond jewelry on display that it took me a few minutes to adjust my eyes to normal light afterward.
A 12.38-ct. fancy blue radiant cut diamond mounted on a platinum and 18k rose gold ring. The IF clarity diamond is surrounded by 1.01 cts. of fancy pink diamonds and 1.25 cts. of white diamonds in a micro-pave setting. It retails for $12.25 million.
Jacob Arabo, founder and owner of the company known for its celebrity clientele and over-the-top bling appeal, really out-did himself this time. Included in this jewelry display were three fancy colored diamond rings ranging in price from $10 million to $20 million. The folks at Jacob & Co. were kind enough to give me images of these statement rings so I can share them with you. All of the diamonds come with Gemological Institute of America reports that speak to their authenticity.
A 12.95-ct. fancy purple-pink radiant cut diamond engagement ring. The IF clarity diamond is mounted on a platinum and 18k rose gold splint shank setting that's mounted with 87 white diamonds (1.17 cts.) and 124 pink diamonds (0.31 cts.) in a micro-pave setting It retails for $11.6 million.
