In antiquity, the island of Great Britain was known as Albion. For the ancients, it referred to the white cliffs of Dover that line the coast and served as a marker for returning sailors. For the great Romantic poet William Blake, the name represented the liberation of humanity and the dawn of a new day. And for David Yurman, it inspired a collection of radiant bezel-set designs, capturing both the sense of a journey’s end and the brilliant beginning of something new.
