“You have to feel it and see it,” David Yurman says. He’s speaking of texture, an indispensible element of every design he creates. Cabled, polished, and hammered metal are combined with diamond pavé and smooth and faceted stones to create a feast for sight and touch.
Cable Coil is formed from a series of concentric, circular loops, characteristic of the African art that influenced early 20th century sculpture. During David Yurman’s apprenticeship with modernist sculptor Jacques Lipchitz, he became fascinated with these simple motifs. This elemental design is reminiscent of a coiled snake biting its tail and symbolizes the human connection to the earth and its natural cycles.
