The David Yurman sample sale started Thursday to mixed reviews. The discount ranges from 30% to 60% discounts and 10% of the proceeds going to breast cancer charity. The sale runs through Sunday but if you can't make it you can always check out the David Yurman outlet, which offers similar discounts all year round.
Inside you will find the sterling collection marked down 30%, but no classic cable bracelets are available. You will find several confetti collection pieces in peridot as well as pearl cables and cuffs. There are lots of semiprecious cushion-cut rings, most plentiful in size 7. There are some stacked cable diamond embellished rings available too, although even with the discount were still pricey.
The 18K collection and yellow gold and silver assortment were discounted steeper at 40% and 50% respectively. There is a great selection of white gold rings and earrings and lots of long necklaces with semi-precious stone beads. The watch selection is quite limited, but all timepieces are 50% off retail.
We are told that the sale may get an influx or new items on Friday but we wouldn't expect classic Yurman pieces to appear. Unfortunately, we couldn't find many items that were actually 60% off. We are told that there will not be additional markdowns, so go early to get the best selection. If the less than dazzling Yurman assortment isn't catching your eye you can always wait until next week when the Chorpard sale is scheduled to begin at Soiffer Haskin.
