- Binghamton, NY (1888PressRelease) June 30, 2011 - The Olympic torch for London 2012 has been unveiled and the most awaited moment becomes more exciting when everyone glanced at the gold colored Olympic torch for the first time. It is definitely an aesthetic piece of perforated, gold-colored design. Here celebrity jeweler Jacob Arabo gives his own evaluation on the Olympic torch for London 2012.
Many people do relate this gold torch with bling, whereas the east London designers Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby say they wanted it to resemble a piece of sporting equipment rather than a trophy. They described it as ''physically light and visually light'' but their 80cm tall perforated gold creation has divided commentators.
Many newspapers around the globe stated the opinions of many jewelers and celebrities on the torch for London 2012.
Another high profile fan of sports Jacob Arabo, also known as Jacob the Jeweler who is renowned for his A-list clientele of celebrities, evaluated the overall designing of the unveiled Olympic torch.
According to Jacob "It reflects a sleek and modern architectural design of the current times. It has a very aerodynamic look which is representative of athletic performance."
He added "I particularly liked the symbolism of 8,000 holes representing the runners from all around the world," Arabo says. "This is a credible detail and evokes the inspiration needed to build this iconic piece."
Some newspaper readers have complained that the torch is significant of "bling" jewelry. But Arabo, who has been referred to in dozens of tracks by artists like 50 Cent, Kanye West and Jay-Z, says it hits all the right notes.
Jacob Arabo stated, "The representation of a torch with significance was accomplished here. It requires special craftsmanship to build these pieces which calls for time, knowledge and specific skill, much like the athletes who participate."
