It is often through contrasts that an object is defined. David Yurman explores this truth in designs that juxtapose light and dark. In the Midnight Mélange Collection, He pairs white diamonds with darkened sterling silver, capturing the theatrics of a starlit sky. In other creations, he uses techniques that play with gradations of light and shadow. These studies in contrast reveal the artist’s commitment to maximizing every detail of a piece of jewelry.
The transformation of simple chains into works of striking jewelry speaks to the artful eye and skillful hand of David Yurman. A simple box chain is finessed into a sensual strand of soft corners and edges. In the wheat chain, metal is carefully woven to replicate a round shaft of wheat. Whether worn alone, paired with a pendant, or layered, a David Yurman chain, like each of his designs, is a unique piece of sculpted jewelry.
