David Yurman Inc. is a privately held American designer jewelry company founded by David Yurman (born October 12, 1942). It is headquartered in New York City. There are eighteen David Yurman boutiques across ten states, and four boutiques across three international cities as of mid-2009. Their first international store was opened in Hong Kong's International Finance Center, with the brand's Asia headquarters nearby. David Yurman grew up on Long Island, NY and first stepped out as a designer and businessman selling little sculptures in his high school cafeteria. Later, at age 16, he was introduced to Cuban welder and sculptor Ernesto Gonzales while visiting his sister in Provincetown, MA. In sculpting, David found an outlet and focus for his creativity, which he would develop over the next two decades as an apprentice under the tutelage of renowned sculptors Jacques Lipshitz and Theodore Rozack (he collaborated with Picasso and Modigliani).
