Many have heard of Jacob the Jeweler or Jacob in plenty of hip-hop songs as he has supplied names like Jay-Z, 50 Cent and more with custom jewelry…expensive custom jewerly at that. It’s interesting to see the impact this guy, an immigrant from Uzbekistan, has had on not just hip-hop but music in general. He’s made jewelry for Jennifer Lopez, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Posh Beckham and Elton John as well as non-musicians like Geena Davis, former NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani and David Beckham. In this interview with Life + Times he talks his creative process and artistic vision and then shows off his Royal Diamond Watch. Sorry he doesn’t talk about his alleged connection to Black Mafia Family (BMF) or the money laundering charge.
