David and Sybil Yurman show their love affair with Italy with the latest Novella pieces for Spring
This Spring, the David Yurman Novella collection continues the Yurmans’ romance with Italy by viewing Renaissance designs through a contemporary lens. The latest pieces unite architectural shapes with a magnificent array of exquisite gemstones, transforming color and form into playful statements of sophistication.
Since Renaissance began as a token of love between David and Sybil, it’s only fitting that Novella draws inspiration from her engagement ring. “David gave me a domed ring with a soft patina and a baguette diamond,” recalls Sybil. “It had a boldness that felt modern.” Many of the new designs feature hand-brushed metal, creating a soft, sensuous play of light. Their emerald and baguette cuts also highlight precious stones of exceptional quality, clarity and size. Bezel settings and faceted chains echo the clean lines of the gems.
“In a way, we’re coming full circle,” she says. “It’s a celebration of what’s important to us—love, purity and continuing in the Classical tradition.”
Novella, meaning “new,” views Renaissance designs through a contemporary lens. Merging bold, architectural shapes with a magnificent array of exquisite gemstones, the pieces transform color and form into playful statements of sophistication.
