Last week luxury jeweler David Yurman hosted a private cocktail party to celebrate new pieces for its bridal collection—and the future looks bright and sparkling. The event, which was attended by David Yurman himself along with his son, collection designer Evan Yurman, was held at the David Yurman Townhouse, a landmark six-story Madison Avenue townhouse that also serves as the brand’s flagship boutique.
The new 2013 bridal pieces feature classics such as the DY Solitaire, set apart from other engagement rings by the brand’s signature cable detailing, along with new designs in its more fashion forward collections. There are also a few one-of-a-kind pieces exclusive to the brand’s Madison Avenue store.
Of particular note is David Yurman’s Capri Collection, rings that feature a 0.5 to 5 carat round or cushion cut center diamond encircled with a micro-pave diamond crown and set on a platinum signature cable band. Not only are the rings absolutely gorgeous, the cushion cut is one of the designer’s most celebrated masterpieces. In fact, David Yurman has sculpted the highest refractory brilliance of any cushion cut diamond in the world.
For spring, David Yurman is also exploring the use of color in engagement rings, one of the bridal trends of the season. The designer has now created the DY Classic Three Stone Ring in vibrant colored gems including rubies, emeralds and sapphires—all set, of course, by brilliant diamonds.
Also exclusive to David Yurman is the DY Crossover Collection which features two intertwining bands that showcase a gorgeous round brilliant center stone. The crossing bands symbolize two independent souls interconnecting. David Yurman created it specifically as a symbol of his union with his wife Sybil. A 5 carat stunner is displayed in the Madison Avenue flagship.
Two other rings from a yet unnamed collection were also showcased at the event and will only be available at the Townhouse. The rings showcase an especially intricate (and sparkly) web of woven diamonds that showcase the center stone with an almost vintage feel.
