When seeking out jewellery that offers something different and feels truly unique to its heritage, there are many design houses that one must explore before finding the perfect piece. And with some of the world’s most revered luxury jewellers now available on our doorstep, it takes something quite special to capture our attention these days. Which is why, when we heard that David Yurman’s iconic jewellery was launching in New Zealand for the first time, we sat up and took note.
The latest addition to Partridge Jewellers’ impressive stable, David Yurman is a brand that needs no introduction, but is deserving of one all the same. Epitomising its New York heritage but celebrated globally, the lauded jewellery house was founded in New York by David Yurman, a sculptor, and his wife, Sybil, a painter and ceramicist, as a collaboration between the duo to simply make beautiful, wearable objects. And while its pieces feel inherently modern, it is a brand that has never forgotten its roots. With the founders’ son, Evan, recently taking the helm, David Yurman still produces timeless and contemporary collections, defined by the brand’s artistic signature of inspiration and innovation.
The latest campaign, Come Closer, explores the idea of the joy of closeness and connection. It draws on New York City as a perennial and palpable muse, capturing the city’s tenacity and incredible, intangible, creative spirit — something that shines through in every piece.
“After years of separation for many — much longer than any of us could have anticipated — we are all craving connection,” shares Evan Yurman. “Come Closer is a call to all of us to delight in the everyday, where simple moments with family and friends are unexpected and beautiful.”
Worn by the likes of the effervescent Sydney Sweeney, the endlessly chic Scarlett Johansson and the brand’s first-ever male ambassador Henry Goulding, the calibre of David Yurman’s clientele is a testament to the brand’s divine nature. And naturally, Partridge Jewellers is the perfect fit for its first foray into New Zealand. Here, David Yurman will sit alongside other renowned international designers, radiating that innate beauty that has made it stand apart since the beginning.
