Forged Carbon–Not Just For Exotic Sports Cars

Share Button

Jessey Stevens (Request) wears pieces from the David Yurman Forged Carbon collection. Photographed by Ben Rosenzweig in NYC.

A man’s car says a lot about him, and so do his accessories. So when the two share the same physics-defying materials in their construction, you know you’re on the right track. Resilient, ultra strong, and lightweight, both million-dollar luxury race cars and this Evan Yurman-designed collection revel in their forged carbon construction. Cut with geometric grooves, the marbled material plays well with the brilliant diamonds it’s set against. Wear these pieces and impress like no one else.

Channeling the Immortality and Strength of the Greek Gods

Jessey Stevens (Request) wears pieces from the David Yurman Titanium collection. Photographed by Ben Rosenzweig in NYC.

The new David Yurman men’s collections expand the limits of materials science and in so doing redefine notions of luxury jewelry design. Platinum, gold and diamonds still have their place…but there’s something special about a truly unique, unexpected fabrication. In a three part series, BlackBook explores exactly that.

David Yurman Titanium Collection

Strength and durability are highly valued qualities when it comes to aerospace technology and military equipment. Both rely on titanium, the 22nd element on the periodic table, known for its lightweight strength. In new, innovative titanium designs, Evan Yurman merges the material’s subtle luster with precious metals and gemstones.

Titanium takes its name from the Titans, the first pantheon of Greek Gods, whose strength, immortality, and indestructibility remains legendary–and whose qualities are mirrored in this sleek collection. Timeless, exceptionally strong, and simply beautiful.
