David Yurman Launches The Collector’s Series

BY Rebecca Sherman // 03.25.15

David Yurman and his son Evan have spent years hunting down rare one-of-a-kind stones at gem-and-mineral shows and excavations in far-flung corners of the globe for their signature twisted-cable jewelry. They’ve reserved the most prized and beautiful specimens for their private collections — until now. The Collector’s Series’ 22 limited-edition rings are set with the Yurmans’ own stash of gems, each signed and numbered, including peach moonstone, purple sugilite and even meteorites.

IN THE BEGINNING.
Over the last five years, Evan and I have been collecting unusual and unique gemstones from all over the world. Most of the stones we collect are simply due to the beauty of the stone — we don’t necessarily have a design in mind. This particular collection was a perfect opportunity to showcase many of our favorite stones in our most iconic design — Albion. In away, I feel like many of these stones were just waiting for this opportunity.

A FAVORITE?
It’s hard to choose, but one of the pieces I’m most proud of is our meteorite Albion surrounded by gray diamonds. The materials are so extraordinary, and the darkened setting creates a dynamic and mysterious look.

MORE COLLABORATIONS WITH EVAN?
Our design process is always about collaboration. In fact, we’re working on a collection that will debut this fall that also utilizes unique gemstones in truly innovative settings.

Available at the David Yurman boutique.
