“THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT APPRECIATE CARS AND PEOPLE THAT OBSESS ABOUT CARS. I AM ONE THAT OBSESSES OVER CARS.”

Since the launch of our Men’s Collections in 2004, the world of motorsports has been a source of inspiration for David Yurman’s Chief Creative Officer, Evan Yurman. He employs a supercar-influenced formula to his designs, blending unique materials with cutting-edge technology and extreme precision to challenge accepted concepts of what jewelry can be.

ATTENTION TO DETAIL

In the IndyCar Series—North America’s premier league of open-wheel racing—it’s the details that define and distinguish each vehicle. From subtly modified body parts to customized gear settings, these supercars push the boundaries of automotive design and pave the way for innovations in the industry.

At this year’s Indianapolis 500, keep an eye out for car #19. Driven by David Yurman brand ambassador Santino Ferrucci, the elite racing machine is specially engineered with carbon fiber, a durable material that’s both stronger and lighter than steel. These same properties are found in our Forged Carbon Collection. For men’s jewelry, we leveraged the next generation of carbon fiber technology: a state-of-the-art composite originally developed for sports cars.

Forged carbon is so versatile that our design team even used it to make custom parts for a motorcycle crafted in partnership with famed builder Walt Siegel. Featuring a forged carbon triple tree and fenders, the one-of-a-kind creation weighs the same as the lightest road bikes on the market, yet can still hit over 180 mph. It’s a testament to the unique properties of this advanced material, one that we’re continually inspired to work with in new ways.

PURE PERFORMANCE

PURE PERFORMANCE

Along with material, both the automotive world and David Yurman design are driven by performance. Consider the black rubber bracelet that Santino Ferrucci wears while racing. Built around interchangeability, its signature bead clasp can be swapped out—just as racecar tires are exchanged at a pit stop.
 

Like the world’s finest dream machines, there’s a lot under the hood when it comes to our men’s jewelry—“as many as 30 steps,” according to Evan. Though they’re often hidden, these complex details together create a magic you feel the moment you test drive a piece.
