Trained as a sculptor, David Yurman approaches the design of a piece of jewelry from every angle. “It’s about the whole piece,” he says. “How it feels in your hand, how it looks on the back as well as the front.” He combines shape and form to create designs with volume and dimension—wearable sculpture. “Form is form,” he explains, “whether it hangs on a wall, goes on a pedestal, goes on a wrist, or goes on a neck. Learning how to balance a little sculpture on a stand is really no different from learning how to balance a stone on the end of a bracelet.”
Daring design is a David Yurman signature. In the Cable Wrap collection, he defies conventional settings, binding magnificent gems with strands of Cable and diamonds. Customary stone shapes are replace with unique silhouettes. The result is innovation at its most elegant.
