NYC-based luxury jewelry brand David Yurman unveils its Shipwreck Collection for Fall/Winter 2017. Taking inspiration from British and Spanish merchant schooners, the Shipwreck Collection comes from various historical shipwrecks where treasures were unearthed from across the world. The collection features three variations: sterling silver, 22K gold and 22K gold with sapphire, emerald, and ruby gems.

The eroded nature was first captured by Yurman’s master model-makers where the team studied ancient coins and artifacts as inspiration and replicated how the metal gets pitted by salt water over time, thrashing about on the ocean floor. Afterward, they were tumbled to a worn finish. An oxidation/patina process was also meticulously applied to each sterling silver piece. The finished collection include: the 22K gold single sapphire stone Band Ring, 22K gold Coin Band Ring which is also available in sterling silver, and the Band Ring and Cuff in sterling silver.
