David Yurman grew up on Long Island, NY and first stepped out as a designer and businessman selling little sculptures in his high school cafeteria. Later, at age 16, he was introduced to Cuban welder and sculptor Ernesto Gonzales while visiting his sister in Provincetown, MA. In sculpting, David found an outlet and focus for his creativity, which he would develop over the next two decades as an apprentice under the tutelage of renowned sculptors Jacques Lipshitz and Theodore Rozack (he collaborated with Picasso and Modigliani). Following a year at NYU, David left college and hitchhiked across the country to California where he found refuge in the beatnik artist colony of Big-Sur.

 

By the mid-1980s, Yurman had made a name for himself with his cable bracelet. This style has become iconic and remains David Yurman’s signature. His company has gone on to produce various jewelry and watch collections for men and women, as well as his own signature fragrance and eyewear collection.
