Jacob & Co.’s Butterfly Earrings Are a Wing of Beauty



Jacob Arabo, founder and chairman of Jacob & Co., wanted to harness the ethereal beauty of butterflies with these stunning earrings. But reflecting the creature’s feather-light physicality was equally important. “I wanted the earrings to be as lightweight as possible, without taking away from the aesthetic,” he says. Arabo designed the earrings as part of a butterfly-inspired collection of one-off jewels called Papillon. His vision “was to create jewelry that embodies the bold color and lightweight movement of a butterfly, in pieces that are not only beautiful but are also easy to wear.” The designer says he’s long been inspired by nature, and often strives to capture “the wonder of the natural world” in his work. These winged wonders certainly do that, in spades. Flight of Fancy These decadent drops—measuring 11.5 cm in length—are fabricated in 18k white gold
