acob & Co’s global presence and distribution are experiencing an unprecedented acceleration. On May 3rd, Jacob & Co. and the Salujain Group hosted a major gala event to celebrate the official opening of the new stunning Jacob & Co. boutique, situated in Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Located on Olaya Street, Riyadh’s most prestigious high street and main artery, the 220 square meters outlet flanks Akaria Plaza and is now the largest Jacob & Co. boutique in the world.
The boutique stands out in a unique way as it’s not tied to a mall, but instead has direct street access and visibility. And some visibility that is : the rounded window with Jacob & Co.’s signature star pattern spans over 40 feet. Opened in partnership with local high jewelry retail specialist Salujain, it ushers in a new presence in one of the most crucial markets for Jacob & Co.: the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
“The Saudi people have a discerning eye for luxury and quality and as we open the doors to our first boutique in Riyadh, we are ready to deliver beyond expectations,” said Jacob Arabo, Chairman and Founder of Jacob & Co. “It takes a special of expertise to understand and explain the unique design of our jewelry, the extremely high quality of the gems we work with and the exhilarating and sophisticated watchmaking we’re now famous for. So the experience Salujain has in high jewelry and watchmaking, and their unique position in the country’s high society is very precious to us in spreading our message, Inspired by the Impossible.”
“At Salujain, we scour the globe to bring the most treasured brands to the region…and Jacob & Co fits our brand legacy in timeless beauty,” says Nour Beydoun, CEO of Salujain. “Launching our boutique in Riyadh and serving the right market is our first step to develop Jaco & Co. presence in Saudi Arabia. Since 1993, Salujain has been Saudi Arabia’s leading agent for the world’s most luxurious jewelry and timepieces: works of timeless beauty, innovation, and artistic craftsmanship. We are both agents and collectors of the brands we represent. We have the technical knowledge, the skills, and experience to bring Jacob & Co.’s works of art to the region.”
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is not just a large local market for Jacob & Co. It is a major business area where the response to the creativity and lavishness of Jacob & Co. creations has been overwhelming. Gaining the right foothold, with the right partner, with an adequately grand and large boutique is an indispensable step Jacob & Co. has been working on for a long time.
Salujain benefits from a historic and deep presence with the most select circles of Riyadh’s high society. The newly struck partnership promises to accomplish great things in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as is being done throughout the world with an uninterrupted string of Jacob & Co. boutique inaugurations. Subsequent 2023 openings are thus planned in Mumbai, Hanoi, Casablanca, Cairo, Amman, Oman, Bahrein and Kuwait, thus bringing the total of Jacob & Co. points of sale to just under 100 worldwide.
