Overview of David Yurman
Did you know that the David Yurman jewelry brand wasn’t created on purpose? David, a New York City sculptor, created a necklace for his partner Sybil. After receiving much attention (and rejecting many cash offers), the pair set out to create a company in 1980 with the same heart represented in Sybil’s adored chain.
With Sybil’s fine attention to detail as an established painter and David’s sculptural knowledge, they combined their talents to create a jewelry brand unlike any that existed. Bursting with their love for each other and life’s fondest moments, the David Yurman collection quickly became a highly coveted brand.
Over the years, David Yurman added collections that represented great life events, like memorable trips to Lanai and anniversaries of long-loved designs. In 2003, the Yurman’s son Evan joined their team, bringing his own creative voice to its men’s and high jewelry selections.
Designed and made in NYC, the brand’s jewelry captures the ever-evolving nature of life and produces pieces to mark special moments along the way. Coming up next in this David Yurman review, we’ll walk you through the brand’s highlights before examining a sliver of its classy collection.

This part of our David Yurman review exists to bring you as close to the in-person experience as possible by turning to customer feedback.
We’ll start with a David Yurman review for the Cable Classic Bracelet with Gemstones and Gold found on Bloomingdales.com. It reads:
“This onyx faceted D. Yurman bangle is everything. It’s simply and elegantly stated…Great choice. Unfortunately, this is just the start of what I feel will become my new obsession.” Other comments mention the great quality and express love for this bracelet that goes well with other textures and styles of jewelry they already own.
The comments on Bloomingdales reveal that the brand loved by those looking for unique and artistic jewelry. With so many nice things said about the Cable Classic Bracelet. We understand why it received a 4.9/5 star score from 49 shoppers and currently sold out on the site.
Next, we headed over to Nordstrom to see what buyers had to say about the Crossover Ring. Awarding it a 4.4/5 star score, here’s how that score breaks down between the 88 people who bought it:
- 5 stars: 74%
- 4 stars: 14%

- 1 star: 7%
We didn’t come across one shopper who didn’t like the design of the ring, saying that it’s dainty, stacks well, and looks great on their fingers. One David Yurman review read:
“The ring is a beautiful product that fits my SO very well. It’s understated and elegant, which great because it fits every occasion. My SO also reports no fading and no green coloring on her skin. Highly recommended.”
Because the quality of David Yurman jewelry has proven to speak for itself, we decided to seek out feedback about what the shipping process is like. When ordering something valuable online, usually, the quicker it gets to you, the better.
The brand offers complimentary 2-day shipping with its orders, and we wanted to find out if it indeed arrives on time. Turning to a David Yurman review on the Gin and Pretzels blog, we were happy to find that it does. The review read:
“Ordering was very simple as most online shopping experiences are extremely easy. It was close to Christmastime, and my bracelet arrived within 2 days.”
For a jewelry order to arrive within 2 days around Christmas is something that not many companies can accomplish. This speaks volumes of the brand’s commitment to its customers and respect for their needs no matter what time of year it is.
In the end, the feedback for David Yurman was just what we expected. Customers love the brand’s designs and as soon as they buy one, they find it hard not to buy more.
Is David Yurman Legit?
While we dug around for feedback for this David Yurman review, we found a lot of customers very pleased with the quality of the brand’s jewelry, but more so, over the moon about its artistic designs.
With that said, there were a few reports of shocked customers about the fact the brand uses sterling silver-plated stainless steel for its silver jewelry.
That’s the largest issue we found from customers online and it’s nothing that would deter us, nor thousands of other customers from choosing the brand. It’s good to aware of the materials your jewelry made from though. Even if it’s affordably priced like DY’s sterling collection. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch with the brand.
