Prepare to be put under a spell by richly hued gemstones with twinkling accents this season
In Partnership With DAVID YURMAN
It was during the evening hours when jewelry designer David Yurman, awakened by the many singing frogs near his home in Putnam Valley, N.Y., would sketch. Those nighttime doodles became the basis of the Night Petals collection, the radiant pieces’ organic shapes reflecting the lily pads on the property’s pond, and the blackened white gold allowing the diamonds to glitter all the brighter, just like the stars in the dark sky.
With this reverence for the entrancing nighttime hours and the sense of possibility that often accompanies them, the designer has crafted exquisite pieces that are as perfect for the season’s moments of private enjoyment as they are for luxurious evenings out on the town.
Consider the Châtelaine collection’s stunning rings, each featuring a single, custom-cut and faceted blue topaz, crimson garnet, lemon-hued citrine or green orchid layered gemstone that draws the gaze, with every stone accented by exquisite pavé diamonds to further celebrate the energy, emotions and nuances we associate with color.
“For us, the holidays are a time of magic,” says David’s wife, Sybil. “When I was a child, my father woke me in the dead of night. Much to my surprise, the first snowfall transformed New York City into a silent wonderland. This season, we wanted to share this moment of enchantment with you through our latest collections — exquisite jewelry inspired by silvery moonlight and golden streetlights.”
Capture those sentiments with a sleek Modern Renaissance bracelet in 18-karat gold featuring intensely colored emeralds or rubies with diamonds, or with the ultra-elegant Novella three-stone bracelet in 18-karat gold with flattering gemstone combinations like Madeira citrine and pink tourmaline; blue topaz and tanzanite; or iolite and green tourmaline.
Whichever special David Yurman creation you choose, you can be assured your jewelry wardrobe will be as timeless as the allure of the season, year after year.
