The David Yurman sample sale continues all weekend long, and those in the mood to shop the most civil and organized sample sale we've ever seen (and drop a few hundred bucks in the process) should be sure to stop by after they've finished scoping out the Manhattan Vintage Clothing Show next door.
Stock is similar to what's been offered at previous sample sales, with jewelry between 40% to 60% off their original retail prices, and organized first by discount, then by material. Most jewelry is also affixed with colored stickers: yellow is 40% off, red is 60% off, and green means that the price is as marked. If there's no sticker, it means that the piece is a flat 50% off.
To the immediate right upon entering, there's a section for "special prices," which staff tells us is code for doorbuster deals—there, you'll find jewelry for as little as $195 and what's left of the sunglasses (there aren't many), priced from $60 to $195.
All silver jewelry is 50% off: plain, chunky silver rings are around $165, and bracelets are in the $700 range. Hoop earrings are around $290 and silver rings with gemstones are around $1,500, while charms and pendants are up to 60% off and are priced between $200 to $600.
Gold jewelry is 40% off, and is in general about 40% more expensive than their silver counterparts, according to staff. Gold gemstone rings are around $2,100. Gold pendant necklaces are around $2,000, and there was also a particularly beautiful pair of pearl earrings in this section for $1,700.
Confused? The sale is stocked not only with jewelry, but with super helpful and friendly staff, who are happy to pull (and clean) anything for you. Best of all, there will be restocking, and markdowns (might!) happen on Saturday or Sunday. Head to the Dealfeed below for sale times.
