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.

This year’s Joyful Heart Foundation Gala was held on May 9, 2013 at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City. This annual social event, now on its 9th year, would never be possible without the vision of Hollywood actress and former beauty queen Mariska Hargitay. Her passion to help and care for victims of under-recognized issues namely sexual assault, domestic violence, and child abuse began when she took the role of Detective Olivia Benson for NBC’s TV show, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. Her newfound appreciation for the extent of prevalence of sexual abuse and violence among women and children inspired her to build a foundation which aims to assist survivors throughout their healing process so they can reclaim their lives yet again.

This year’s Joyful Heart Foundation Gala was made possible with the support from corporate sponsors which include big entities like Pepsi Cola, Michael Stars, Verizon Communications, The Art of Grace, and Wolf Films among others.

At the gala, Julianne shared her personal story of the abuse she experienced when she was young while studying at London’s renowned dancing school, Italia Conti Academy. She encouraged victims of such traumatic events to be strong so they can enjoy a bright and meaningful future. Despite their horrific past, they too can be successful in life by abandoning fear and seeking a support group such as that offered by the Joyful Heart Foundation.

A Game of Thrones is a popular fantasy TV series adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s series of epic novels, A Song of Ice and Fire. The brilliant storyline from the first novel in a series of fantasy novels was translated into a wonderful television special by directors David Benioff and D.B. Weiss for HBO. The engrossing story is set on the fictional continents of Westeros and Essos and follows through the multitude of interesting plots led by main characters featured on A Story of Ice and Fire novel.

Due to the well-paced, well-acted, and well-shot features on its first season, Game of Thrones received a plethora of nominations from several award-winning bodies. During the 2011 Emmy Awards, the HBO special took home two out of thirteen nominations. It was also in 2011 that Game of Thrones was celebrated as the Best TV Show by Scream Awards. The same award-giving body gave awards to Game of Thrones key characters Peter Dinklage for Best Supporting Actor and Emilia Clarke for Breakthrough Performance by a Female Actress. The undeniable high ratings and huge following of Game of Thrones has made it possible for HBO to consistently renew the show. Although its third season just started this April, HBO had already renewed for season four to be aired in 2014.

The anticipation for the 3rd season of the Game of Thrones franchise was at its highest when its cast and crew gathered at Hollywood’s Chinese Theatre for the hit TV show’s premiere party. Directors David Benioff and D.B. Weiss together with George R.R. Martin were the first ones who arrived at the premier event last March 18, 2013.

Dancing with the Stars is a US TV reality show inspired by Strictly Come Dancing of British television. The show premiered in 2005 and is currently on its 16th Season. Professional dancers are paired up with celebrities to perform popular ballroom dances and compete against each other for the title of season’s champion of Dancing with the Stars. Through its eight-year run, famous personalities have participated in the show, namely Denise Richards, Mario Lopez, Jennifer Grey, Stacy Keibler, Kelly Monaco, and Kristie Alley. Judges as well as the audience choose the best performances and vote out the worst pair until the final showdown whereby 3 pairs are left for the winning title.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy is a professional Latin ballroom dancer and mainstay of Dancing with the Stars. The Ukranian-born choreographer and instructor started his stint on the hit show during its second season and has been paired up with brilliant personalities like Tia Carrere, Willa Ford, Laila Ali, Brandy, and Melissa Gilbert. In total, Maksim has appeared in 13 seasons of Dancing with the Stars, and was able to make it to the final round four times with his partners Laila Ali, Mel B, Erin Andrews, and Kirstie Alley.

Aside from his natural good looks, Maksim is known to be one of the best-dressed professional dancers from the ABC dance show. This is widely evident in his choice in clothing and jewelry. On February 20, 2013, the famous Latin ballroom dancer was seen entering the jewelry house owned by Jacob Arabov, Jacob & Co. He was joined by his brother, a professional dancer participant of Dancing with the Stars as well, Valentin Chmerkovskiy. The two celebrity dancers were warmly welcomed by Jacob Arabov himself.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy bought an elegantly-crafted watch from the New York designer’s Grand Collection. The timepieces from this collection are similar to that of the legendary Five Time Zone watches designed by Jacob Arabov. Although there are similar features between the watches from these two collections, Grand Collection watches showcase a distinct design that is just as memorable and grand as the jewelry brand’s iconic Five Time Zone watches. The watches from the Grand Collection display times of four cities from around the globe which are popularly known as hubs of 24-hour commerce and interesting cultural life – New York, LA, Paris, and Tokyo. Grand Collection watches show the local time on a dial of the same dimension as that of the other time zones, resulting in a pentagon-shaped design. This high-concept and innovative design is seldom used in wristwatch making, and is considered to be exquisite and elegant by choice of the rich and famous. Elegant timepieces from the Grand Collection are sold at $6800 each.

Jacob Arabov established his jewelry house 25 years ago in New York’s Kaplan Jewelry District. His keen eye for beauty and great sense of fashion can be seen not only in watches but also in his impossibly beautiful jewelry collections.
