The iconic jewelry brand’s cofounders and chief designers reveal their personal story and creative journey together through words and images

Celebrating more than half a century of jewelry design, trailblazers Sybil and David Yurman take readers on a journey through their creative process and the history of their influential design house through personal anecdotes and never-before-seen imagery.

Spanning more than 350 pages filled with their artwork, family photographs, original design sketches, stunning jewelry portraits, and behind-the-scenes images from the brand’s celebrated advertising campaigns, this luxe monograph traces the ascent of America’s premier twentieth-century fine jewelry brand from the underground art worlds of New York and California to the global stage. 

Showcasing Sybil’s background as a painter and David’s as a sculptor, the book explores how the Yurmans’ artistic practices are inextricably intertwined with their jewelry-making process. It delves into the creation of their iconic Cable bracelet and other world-renowned collections. Featuring personal texts by Sybil, David, and their son, Evan, who became the president and chief creative officer of the luxury house in 2022, the book also includes never-before-seen original paintings and sculptures by Sybil and David Yurman.

Brand ambassadors, such as Kate Moss, Amber Valletta, and Gisele Bündchen, are showcased throughout the book in campaign images by Peter Lindbergh and other notable photographers.
