New York native Nina Runsdorf is known for her wearable, one-of-a-kind jewelry made from precious and semi-precious stones. Nina’s designs are elegant, modern, creative and never too precious to wear.
From a young age, Runsdorf was surrounded by artists and musicians, family friends that undoubtedly influenced her desire to enter into a craft of her own. When she was just 12 years old, Runsdorf created her first jewelry collection in the kitchen of her parent’s upstate farm.
After working in the fashion industry for several years, she decided to return to her first love, jewelry. She deepened her knowledge of gemstones working alongside her father-in-law at Runsdorf Associates in the heart of New York’s diamond district as well as becoming GIA certified.
In 2005 she launched her first collection and immediately made a name for herself with her trademarked design, the Flip Ring.
