Artists of the Renaissance looked to the classics for inspiration, yet infused their work with innovative techniques and a new aesthetic sensibility. In 1983, David Yurman did the same with the development of his first Cable design, the Renaissance bracelet, which merges sculptural form with the brilliant jewel tones found in classical painting. Cable exemplifies the designer’s motto of "Continuing in the Classic Tradition,” with references to ancient Greek and Roman, Egyptian and Celtic forms. Twisting multiple strands of metal into a cohesive helix, Cable is David Yurman’s iconic design and signature motif.
“Gemstones have a beauty unlike anything else,” explains David Yurman. He is known for his use of brilliant colored stones in bold dimensions and unconventional combinations. What makes them radiate is the designer’s signature faceting. David Yurman has developed exclusive cuts that reveal a stone’s fullest brilliance and color. Unique settings further highlight the beauty of the gems—proving once again that when this sculptor’s skilled artistry meets nature’s most beautiful materials, beautiful things happen.
