This year marks a major milestone for David Yurman — its 30th anniversary — but in characteristic fashion, the company isn’t resting on its laurels.
The New York-based fine jewelry and timepiece firm, founded by husband-and-wife artists David and Sybil Yurman, is about to go global.
Although the firm’s jewelry and watches are sold in top doors across North America and the Caribbean, including Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue, as well as in 15 freestanding stores, it has been slowly inching into other international markets. In 2009, it opened four shops in Asia and entered Russia with an in-store shop in Moscow retailer Tsum.
This year, Yurman will land in Europe for the first time with in-store shops. London, Paris and Amsterdam are top of mind, and locations in the Middle East are possible as well.
Yurman unveiled a retail design concept with a 1,000-square-foot in-store shop at Bloomingdale’s 59th Street flagship in October. In the spring, the company will take the wraps off its long-awaited Madison Avenue flagship, which David Yurman designed with architecture firm Gabellini Sheppard.
