The David Yurman Bridal Collection Jump Started My Biological Clock

I’ve never been much for marriage. Aside from the fact that I’m legally not allowed to marry in 45 of 50 states, the entire practice just seemed like the willful destruction of yours and someone else’s lives. But David Yurman’s Bridal Collection has me rethinking my stance, mostly because a wedding means an engagement ring and nothing inspires love like diamonds. Ladies, am I right?

Over champagne and macaroons, I perused the debut of the David Yurman Bridal Collection at the David Yurman Townhouse on 63rd and Madison. In other words, I was ballin’.


After years of high consumer demand followed by years of  research, David Yurman is finally ready to take you down the aisle. The collection was designed by David’s son, Evan who especially wanted to bring “DY’s unique style and identity to a very traditional arena.”

Out of the 18 diamond engagement rings, wedding bands, and romantic jewelry, the star of this new venture is the David Yurman Signature Cut Diamond™ (when there’s a “™” involved, you know it’s serious) —  a spectacularly brilliant, perfectly proportioned, ‘hearts and arrows’, cushion-cut diamond that’s available in all of the ring styles.

The David Yurman Bridal Collection Jump Started My Biological Clock

Three flutes of champagne and one macaroon later (I’m on a liquid diet…the main liquid being alcohol), I stumbled out of the DY Townhouse, blinded by the bling and dreaming of my future faceless husband slipping a 3.5 carat (a demure size, I think) David Yurman Signature Cut Diamond™ onto my large, mannish finger.

On second thought, maybe I should aim for more carats to maximize the delicacy of my hands. But I’m putting the carat before the horse. I guess I should work on acquiring the fiancé first…any takers?
