David Yurman grew up on Long Island, sold sculptures in the school cafeteria and started working with other artists like Ernesto Gonzales when he was about 16 years old. It was not, however, until the early 1970s that the brand has started to sell artistic jewelry. The first significant jewelry pieces David Yurman made were a pair of earrings for his wife, which he had initially had been reluctant to reproduce and sell. Thankfully, Sybil his wife had always been entrepreneurial as well as artistic. It was partly due to her influence that the eponymous brand came into being. In 1982, David Yurman introduced the cable bracelet, and now that is the brand’s undisputed bestseller and iconic design.
