MONTE CARLO, MONACO – 25th August 2014: Luxury timepiece and jewelry house, Jacob & Co. enjoyed a very warm reception and great success with its annual summer exhibition of rare high jewelry and timepieces in Monte Carlo. The exhibition, which was open to the public from August 5th through August 23rd, launched with a private gala event for 500 guests at the historic Hotel Hermitage overlooking the Monte Carlo marina. The breathtaking Salle Belle Époque ballroom provided an ideal setting for the exposition of extraordinary jewelry collections, piece-unique treasures from around the world and critically acclaimed timepieces from the company’s Geneva, Switzerland watch enterprise. Loyal clients, new customers, and global VIPS gathered throughout the three-week span to view the celebrated collections.

Founder and Chairman of Jacob & Co., Jacob Arabo said of the show, “This year’s exhibition has been by far our most successful to date. We could not have imagined how much the beautiful surroundings of the Hotel Hermitage would add to the experience. We are delighted with the overall outcome of our time in Monte Carlo, and are very much looking forward to returning to share once again collections with our clients and new friends who join us in this beautiful city in the years to come.”
