The cable coil bracelet by David Yurman has gone a long way from its beatnik heritage. The jeweler with his partner created and exhibited a coiled bracelet in New York City back in the sixties and the style quickly became iconic. Some industry observers even claim it’s one of those generation symbols that survive its own time. The coiled style still exists today, and David Yurman has put elegance and luxury into it. The artist transforms the bracelet’s two ends as a point of indulgence. Both ends can exhibit different precious and semi-precious gems, such as black onyx, turquoise, carnelian, and topaz. A closer look, the stones are not just placed at the end, but they are chiseled with extreme skill to create multi-facets. Some bracelets feature single gems, while for a more energetic feel, some have multiple gems running around the ends.
David Yurman is available at Shreve & Co. on Post Street, San Francisco.
