As the Director of Photography at Gray & Sons, and a connoisseur of the finer things in life, I have had the opportunity to enjoy many remarkable fine jewelry pieces that have crossed my path. The most incredible thing about well-crafted jewelry is the fact that pieces can be completely timeless. Jewelry can last for thousands of years and can be handed down from generation to generation, making them amazing heirlooms for whoever possesses them. Just by holding some of these ageless wonders, you can feel the aura of its legacy and it really makes you appreciate the craftsmanship that designers undertake when creating these pieces. One of the jewelry designers I am most fascinated with is David Yurman because of his simple aesthetic but unique use of stones. David Yurman’s Meteorite collection is especially mesmerizing and deserves a more thorough analysis to help shed some light as to why it’s the subject of my deepest affections.
It’s no surprise that the use of Gibeon Meteorite in Yurman pieces is inspired by the idea of space. Gibeon Meteorite is a 4 billion year old stone with crystals of iron, nickel and small amounts of cobalt that give the material it’s beautiful, unique etchings that look like an extraterrestrial language. It is classified as a fine octahedrite iron meteorite and its natural patterns dazzle by catching and reflecting light in a unique manner that cannot be replicated by any other stone. This otherworldly material is the perfect embodiment of the David Yurman brand- imaginative, exclusive, and extraordinary. Using meteorite as a precious stone in luxury jewelry design is currently unique to David Yurman. The stone can be found both cut and sometimes fused throughout his collections in necklaces, bracelets and rings.
