David Yurman is an American jewelry brand founded in 1980 by David Yurman and his wife, Sybil. Yurman grew up in Long Island, New York, and became an apprentice of sculptor Jacques Lipchitz in the 1960s. When he met his wife, painter Sybil Kleinrock, they undoubtedly had a knack for not just art, but business, as they created Putnam Art Works, a company that specialized in sculptural jewelry. For the next decade, David and Sybil showcased their jewelry and artwork at various galleries, where they learned more about the business. They were married in 1979, and created the David Yurman company a year later.

His iconic Cable collection was created in 1982 with a bracelet. The collection was inspired by the Brooklyn Bridge’s spiraled cables, and ancient Greek and Minoan jewelry. Designed in Sterling Silver, Yurman adds precious stones to give the jewelry its own personality. Bracelets, rings, earrings, and necklaces carry this iconic motif, which is always revisited in every David Yurman collection, year after year.
In 1997, David Yurman revolutionized the world of fine jewelry by being the first to set diamonds on sterling silver, and today, his jewelry is one of the most instantly recognizable jewelry brands across the globe, and a synonym of luxury.

The foundation also supports various charities, including the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
