Here’s What David Yurman’s New High Jewelry Collection Looks Like



JCK’s most recent David Yurman coverage includes an interview with cofounder and chief brand officer Sybil Yurman, the recent launch of its online “engravable configurator,” and this report on a limited-edition collection of its famous cable bracelets.

But the latest news from the jewelry megabrand, which arrived via email the day before the Fourth of July, was of a different flavor—and quite the jolt.

It was a dispatch from Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week, where the brand just presented its high jewelry collection. And if design can be compared to calisthenics, and the DY studio’s core line is a light, easy workout, then the Paris pieces are a strenuous exercise in creative muscle flexing that has led to an elegantly sculpted end result.

Standouts include diamond-encrusted, geometric new additions to the Renaissance collection, inspired by the Yurman family’s love of Italian art and architecture.

The new DY Origami collection continues the Yurmans’ love affair with the ancient Japanese art of origami. Each fine row of gold cable wire is meticulously positioned so that the necklace and bracelet links lie flat against the skin while still creating fluid movement.

The pearl pieces also command attention, including a necklace and earrings inspired by Helen of Troy, considered the most beautiful woman in antiquity and a symbol of elegance and grace.

There’s also a golden South Sea pearl ring designed by Evan Yurman, which reinterprets the design vocabulary of a few past collections with a modern, luxurious sense of artistry.
