David Yurman challenges conventional ideas of jewelry design and reveals the uncommon beauty of surprising unions. He was the first designer to set diamonds in sterling silver, revolutionizing the world of fine jewelry. In the men’s collections in particular, the designer works with unusual combinations, setting meteorite in 18-karat gold and mixing rubber with diamonds and colored gemstones.
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.
