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.
Midnight Mélange was inspired by the beauty and romance of Paris at night. "Paris in the daytime is beautiful, but Paris at night is spectacular. . . It’s about dreams. It’s about the contrast of dark and light,” muses David Yurman, remembering his first moments of inspiration. The dramatic transformation of the city and sky as night descends is reflected in diamonds set in darkened silver.
