NEW YORK, NY – “No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” One of Nelson Mandela’s best loved quotes sums up the essence of his work, life and believes, as does the screen biography “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom” which screenwriter William Nicholson adapted from Mandela’s autobiography, directed by Justin Chadwick. Anna Wintour, Burberry and U2 hosted a special screening at the Ziegfeld theater in New York City to celebrate the movie and the original song “Ordinary Day” that Bono & The Edge wrote for the film.

The event was, of course, attended by the stars of the movie, British actor Idris Elba who plays the role of the former President of South Africa, and Naomie Harris who embodies his wife Winnie. Zenani Mandela, Nelson’s and Winnie’s daughter, was amongst the guests as well, emphasizing how important the connection between cast and crew and the Mandela family was when shooting the biopic. Looking radiant wearing rings by Jacob Arabov, Naomie Harris admits to not knowing that Winnie Mandela “was as complex as she is. I didn’t know that what I was actually saying yes to is the most challenging role that I’ve played so far.” But it seems like she did a good job in portraying Mandela’s wife who she met in South Africa during the premier of the biopic: “She was actually crying and she said that was the first time she felt her story had been captured on film.”

“Long Walk To Freedom” was not Harris’ first success. The British actress has appeared in television and film since she was nine years old. She is best known for her starring role as Selena in 28 Days Later, as Tia Dalma/Calypso in Pirates of the Caribbean, and as Eve Moneypenny in the 23rd James Bond film, Skyfall. Naomie dazzled on the red carpet wearing brilliant rings from Jacob Arabov, which stunningly complemented her ice blue Burberry dress and black Daniele Michetti Prabha heels, accessorized with a matching Rauwolf clutch. The marvelous creations from the prominent New York jeweler Jacob Arabov included two Channel set bands, each of which feature 1ct of white channel set diamonds set in 18k white gold, as well as a Pave band, featuring 1.54cts of pave set diamonds set in platinum.

Jacob & Co., the luxury timepiece and diamond jewelry house, began more than 25 years ago as a small design and manufacturing company in the heart of New York’s jewelry district. With a unique talent for creating jewels and timepieces that were as innovative as they were spectacular, the small company rapidly grew into one of the most recognized names in the watch and jewelry world. After years of designing for private clients and building a sterling reputation with leaders in the worlds of entertainment, sports and high finance, the company launched its flagship store in New York City in 2004. Today, the brand has locations globally and is recognized as one of the premier luxury brands in fine watches and high jewelry. From the popular Lace Collection, to the newly launched Abanico, Jezebel or Rare Touch Collections, all of these iconic pieces are distinctively sexy and feminine.

New York, NY – Drugs, prostitutes, crashed helicopters – the story of Jordan Belfort, a New York stock broker, who conned his way to earning hundreds of millions in the 1980s and 90s, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, seems to be over the top – even coming from not-so-subtle director Martin Scorsese. It turns out though that Scorcese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street” closely follows Belfort’s own memoir with the same title. Considering that Belfort made his living as a scam artist, it remains up for debate though, how economical he is with the truth himself.

While DiCaprio clearly plays the main role in the film that is hitting movie theaters in the United States this week, he was outshone by his costar, Margot Robbie at the premiere of “The Wolf of Wall Street” in New York City last week, where she wowed everybody in her classically chic look. The 23-year old Australian blonde beauty has come a long way since her early days at Neighbours, a hugely popular opera from Australia where stars like Kylie Minogue, Natalie Imbruglia and Delta Goodrem started their careers. All eyes were on Margot Robbie when she walked down the red carpet at the Ziegfeld Theater in an off-shoulder ivory gown by Giorgio Armani, Brian Atwood shoes and truly captivating jewelry by Jacob Arabov – an intricate full-finger ring and stunning pearl spider earrings.

The crawlies certainly added a lot of bling to Robbie’s beautiful outfit: The Spider Earrings are made with 20.69cts white pearls, highlighted with 0.84cts pave set white diamonds and set in 18K black plated gold – these beauties trump even the most serious case of arachnophobia. And the ring did not fall short either: A full-finger ring from the Jacob & Co Lace collection, featuring 4.40cts of white diamonds and set in 18k black plated gold, adding even more glamour to an already breathtaking outfit. After Jewel and Kim Kardashian were spotted wearing similar full-finger rings – also by Jacob Arabov – earlier this month, Margot Robbie is taking the look to the red carpet. Those ladies might be on to something…

Jacob & Co., the luxury timepiece and diamond jewelry house, began more than 25 years ago as a small design and manufacturing company in the heart of New York’s jewelry district. With a unique talent for creating jewels and timepieces that were as innovative as they were spectacular, Jacob Arabov rapidly grew his small company into one of the most recognized names in the watch and jewelry world.
