The luxurious jewelry brand David Yurman is announcing its two new upcoming partnerships, one with New York’s Empire State Building, and another with the Robin Hood Foundation!
In honour of this landmark’s 90th anniversary, David Yurman is partnering with the Empire State Building and celebrating architectural elements that have been associated with this iconic building all these years. His collaboration involves the launch of the David Yurman Empire Collection with limited-edition styles, as well as a takeover of the building’s window displays featuring iconic imagery celebrating the building’s 90 years. Opening its doors in 1931, The Empire State Building instantly captured the world’s imagination as a symbol of soaring ambition, American craftsmanship and technical innovation. From majestic heights, you could stand amongst the clouds, and see the entire city, forever transforming the landscape of New York and the modern city as we know it. To this day, the Empire State Building remains an icon in the city that the Yurman family calls home and continues to inspire us anew.
The new women’s jewelry and men’s accessories are inspired by the building’s enduring strength, eternal optimism and Art Deco motifs. For women, involved is a collection of limited edition Cable bracelets that are finished with unique endcaps, including pavé diamonds arranged in the shape of the building’s iconic façade. For men, a collection of hand-carved signet and band rings, amulets and bracelets all feature a representation of the “wings of progress” found on the building’s spire. The pieces are proudly designed and manufactured in New York City by David Yurman’s team of artisans and craftspeople. Please see below for some of these exquisite pieces featured in this collection:
Empire Cable Bracelet with Diamonds, 5mm
Empire Bead Bracelet with 18K Yellow Gold, 8.8mm
20% of the collection’s sales will be donated to the newly launched David Yurman x Robin Hood Foundation Unity Fund, the second partnership, in support of the organization’s efforts to end poverty in New York City. Robin Hood’s ultimate mission is to elevate New Yorkers out of poverty and clear a pathway to mobility, which aligns with David Yurman’s brand values and is close to the founders’ hearts. Through this partnership, the shared mission is to bring hope while rebuilding a (new) New York by giving a helping hand to local communities in their greatest time of need.
Yurman hopes to continue celebrating the people, diversity, cultural institutions, neighbourhoods, and landmarks that are a part of New York’s creative pulse, and to uplift spirits during these times of hardships caused by the pandemic.
