We checked out the David Yurman sample sale this afternoon at 410 West 16th Street (inside the Chelsea Market building), which features the label's fine jewelry for up to 60% off. Because the original prices of some items are so high—as in thousands of dollars—nothing here is really cheap: prices range from $85 to around $2,500. But for those who have the money, this sale is a great opportunity to invest in timeless, quality jewelry.
The discount breakdown is pretty simple: items marked with a yellow sticker are 40% off, sticker-less pieces are half off, and those marked with a green sticker are 60% off. There are also a few items with special pricing, which are individually marked.
Women will find lots of metal jewelry, including bracelets, rings, and necklaces. These range from the simple, like gold chain necklaces, to the standout (emerald-and-diamond cocktail rings). There are also several semi-precious stone beaded strand necklaces on offer for $225. Unfortunately, we didn't spot any of the brand's signature cable bracelets, although there were some other styles that looked similar.
Guys will find watches, cufflinks, dog-tag necklaces, and rings. There are some bracelets that looked to be unisex, like simple woven rope styles for $95.
As for other accessories, there's one glass case for sunglasses, which are priced between $85 and $100—they're available in multiple styles for both men and women.
Note that when we visited, there were several cases with empty spots in the displays, so it doesn't seem like they're restocking much at all. Further markdowns are possible, so stay tuned for updates.—Gillian Fuller
