New York—David Yurman revealed its spring 2021 campaign this week.
Called “My New York,” it honors the city’s creative pulse, cultural institutions, neighborhoods and landmarks, the jeweler said in a press release.

New York City-based photographer Lachlan Bailey shot the campaign and Anastasia Barbieri styled it.

The brand said the latter collection is inspired by circles, representing perfect balance, harmony and unity.
For the Yurmans, “My New York” is about honoring a city where people have flocked to chase dreams and pursue possibilities.
Co-Founder and CEO David Yurman said, “Sybil, Evan and I were all born in New York City. It's our home and in our DNA—its creative energy courses through our veins. We want to celebrate and support our hometown—what this city was, is, and will always be. It's our New York.”
Out now, the spring 2021 campaign will feature in digital and print media, out of home advertising, video streaming and social media platforms.
