Design Notes

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.”

The Albion® Collection

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.
