Since the late 1950's, artist and designer, David Yurman, has been learning and specializing in the craftsmanship of jewelry design. Originally a young artist of the Beat Generation and counter-culture found on the West coast, Yurman found his talent in sculpting as an understudy to many acclaimed sculptors.
It wasn't until his chance meeting with another young, free-minded artist and his future-wife, Sybil, that Yurman would begin utilizing his talents with modern art sculptures for the delicate craft of jewelry. Today, the designer's name is synonymous with detailed, luxury accessories for both men and women.
The Albion 23mm Stainless Steel Quarts Timepiece Womens' Watch by David Yurman is a testament to his life's journey as an artist. The timepiece is part of the Albion Collection, which features the classic, signature cable style made popular by this distinguished jewelry designer.
The modern, sleek face of the watch rests comfortably on a stainless steel bracelet with a discreet fold-over clasp and classic chain design. The timepiece features Swiss quartz movement for dependable functionality and tastefully-cut diamond insets which frame the face of the watch.
An additional eight diamonds are situated in between stainless steel Roman numerals, adding delight and interest to this polished timepiece. The look and feel of the Albion Womens' Watch is both timeless and timely: from the glisten of the stainless steel to the pristine sparkle of diamonds, this timepiece is quintessential Yurman design.
For men looking to make a fashion statement that maintains the delicate balance between refined elegance and sporty, contemporary style, the David Yurman Revolution 43.5 mm Chronograph Men's Watch is an excellent option. Features include a Swiss, self-winding automatic chronograph Valjoux movement and three subdials.
This watch is available with a beautifully modern, chrome-toned stainless steel band or, for those who want to go even more sporty, in stainless steel with stylized black rubber. Its appearance is in some ways evocative of the dashboard one might to see in a high end sports car, its black and chrome face sporting subtle yet daring red accents.
The Revolution 43.5 mm Chronograph watch is in keeping with the sleek and modern - but never ostentatious - style that appears consistently across men's timepieces by famed designer David Yurman. Equally well known for modern, geometric women's jewelry, Yurman's aesthetic reveals the influence of encounters with fine artists and sculptors early in his career. Yurman went on to feature highly sculptural elements in his jewelry designs, an aesthetic he has taken even further with the creation of distinct timepieces that emphasize form, design and composition.
The David Yurman Cable Wrap Necklace with Amethyst and Diamonds is just one of the many pieces found in the Cable Wrap collection from sculptor-turned-jeweler, David Yurman.

The diamonds weigh approximately 0.28 carets, are in the pave setting, and add even more sparkle to an already-dazzling necklace. The necklace also comes in a blue topaz or black onyx setting.

On a sunny fall day in Manhattan in the early 40s, a boy named David Yurman was born and his purpose was to create art. As a teen he studied different welding techniques under artist Ernesto Gonzales, focusing on three dimensional forms from molten metal rods. Later he established his own sculpting studio in New York City, and met his co-creator and life partner Sybil. Yurman focused on modern sculpture and created a jewelry business based on all of his life experiences and learning history.
The jewelry business flourished, and Yurman became famous worldwide for his exquisite, modern pieces. His men's collection is known for its impeccable quality and modern design.

Gibeon Meteorite is what Yurman uses in his Meteorite Collection and is over four billion years old! One can find rings, cuff links, bracelets and dog tags in this collection.
These days the casual look may be all around us, but for those who raise their sights just a little, nobody looks better than the well-groomed gentleman who knows how to coordinate his dress so that wherever he goes, people notice…and approve.
For a young man on his way up or for the more mature gentleman who has already arrived, the proper and fitting dress is almost mandatory. And double cuffs have always been preferable to single cuffs with buttons. While it’s true that it easier to button a single cuff, nothing finishes off the appearance of a gentleman’s suit than just a peek of the fuller, richer double cuff that recalls days of wealth and elegance.
Of course with double cuffs, the proper cufflinks are mandatory. There are, and always have been, a never ending list of cufflinks available to the public. Some styles are so extravagant that only a person with extremely bad taste and the intention of “dressing up” would be seen wearing them. There are cufflinks of every metal as well as of other materials, and of course, for those whose hubris dictates they display their names or initials on everything they own, there must be something personal on the cufflinks.
David Yurman's approach, however, began with the belief that a gentleman wants a cuff that is both attractive and stylish. That gentleman need look no further than the graphic cable cufflinks designed by David Yurman. These iconic links are not only tastefully designed, but of only the highest quality and workmanship.
These elegant as well as understated cufflinks inset with black onyx or even pave black diamonds place their wearer apart from the crowd. No matter what the event, formal or casual, a set of graphic cable cufflinks in sterling silver with pave black diamonds is always the right choice. And the David Yurman cufflinks are not only easy to slip into the buttonholes but are the same on the inside as on the outside, adding another attractive and desirable feature to one's dress. No matter how the wearer moves about, a part of his beautiful cufflink will always be on display.
And remember, David Yurman Graphic cable cufflinks are only a part of his collection. A collection that incorporates more exotic and unusual materials such as forged carbon, meteorite, and others. Be sure to go online to find a boutique near you and step into the world of David Yurman. Consider coordinating a matching graphic cable piece to your wardrobe too.
