I love DY!!! His stuff is expensive but its worth the $$$ IMO, it looks so pretty IRL.
I have the Petite Albion in Prasiolite. It is my favourite ring. I really want the matching earrings, one of the graphite ice rings and a bangle.


Heres a pic of my ring....

you really dont like Yurman, do you?

he has his place. I have a few of his mens pieces that I got as gifts. I dont think I would ever actually pay for any of his stuff...

I do want the curblink in yellow gold though, Im considering it. But id rather get cartier to be honest. DY yellow gold feels hollow.

On some of his pieces he has recently been using 18k bonded gold (aka gold filled). Not like I necessarily blame him - since the price of gold is INSANE right now. But he shouldn't be pricing it as if its solid gold.

I'd love to own the Petite Albion Garnet or Amethyst ring, but apart from those, I think most of his stuff looks a bit outdated.

Only on a few pieces. All the pieces that are twotone may have Bonded Gold (which is like a thick vermeil) the yellow gold pieces aren't necessarily solid but they are definitely 100% gold.

I used to be involved with yurman from a business sense.

^really?? I know most of Yurman's pieces are two-toned - such as the signature cable cuffs. The most is silver - but the stones at the end I always assumed were set in SOLID gold caps..? Not bonded (as they are represented as solid).

for example...




*the description on these says

Quote:
From the Color Classic Collection, Cable bracelet in sterling silver with 14-karat yellow gold bracelet and faceted ____ end caps. 7mm Cable.

I assumed that it is real gold bands soldered to the silver.


Where as in this description...




it says...
Quote:
Medium Oval-Link Chain with sterling silver and yellow gold* cable and smooth links. 7 1/2"L. Made in the USA of domestic and imported material. Style number BC0133S875.

*Please Note: This item contains 18-karat yellow bonded gold.
aka - the gold rings are not solid gold.

Bonded gold is only 5% real gold - in weight+thickness. I hope I wasn't wrong in ****uming the rest of his stuff was REAL gold - soldered to silver.

pics dy.com
I've noticed on his website - just on a few of the inexpensive rings - and on many of the chain jewelry.

I have been debating for the past few months whether or not to get the Petite Albion ring in Garnet:

(davidyurman.com)

Does anyone own it? Is it worth the price? ($625)

Jewelry Television.com (who advertises here) has some Yurman inspired rings right now. I actually prefer their version better. I love that the stones are set in black rhodium as opposed to yellow gold.

Yurman:

Pink + Yellow Sapphire Cable Candy Metro Rings





JTV:

Pink + Blue Sapphire / Tzavorite Garnet Rings

^ plus $129 is a lot cheaper than $575! I was gonna get the yellow Yurman one - but instead I might get 2 or 3 of the other ones and stack them.
