In 1982, David Yurman designed what would become his eponymous brand’s signature piece: the Renaissance Cable bracelet, a twisted, open helix capped by gemstones that he and his team have iterated on countless times over the last 40 years.
And today, the brand has introduced a collection of Renaissance Cable bracelets that pushes the classic design into new territory.
Rendered in lightweight anodized aluminum, the bracelets come in a rainbow of colors including blue, green, pink, gold, and black. They’re beautiful, sure, but what makes them so interesting is that they are solid pieces—cast to capture the many components of the original bracelet in a complete form. The details remain, though: There are even faceted aluminum tips standing in for the usual gemstones on the open design.
And the bold colors feel of the moment, and will likely appeal to younger jewelry buyers.
The collection is similar to how Tiffany & Co. in 2020 iterated on its signature bracelet—Elsa Peretti’s Bone cuff—in bright, vivid colors. (Yurman also introduced an aluminum cable color collection for the bracelet’s 30th anniversary in 2014.)
The collection, which will be available online July 19, also has a charitable angle: 100% of profits from the sale of two of the its colors (Sand and Indigo) will benefit the David Yurman x Robin Hood Unity Fund.
