The seasonal store will feature seven distinct jewelry collections
Between its quaint Shingle-style houses, spotless beaches, and circa-1700s seaport vestiges, Nantucket, Mass., could hardly get any more picturesque.
But a new pop-up shop is poised to boost the tiny isle’s chic quotient—for the season, at least.
Nantucket Rocks, a summer-long jewelry pop-up spearheaded by New York City–based jewelry designer Nina Runsdorf, officially takes over the Vanessa Noel boutique (5 Chestnut St.) from July 1 to Sept. 5 (Labor Day).
The 850-square-foot shop features pieces from seven singular collections—Buddha Mama, Jordan Alexander, Sorellina, Pamela Huizenga, Arunashi, Katherine Jetter and Nina Runsdorf—hailing from various parts of the globe.

“Nantucket is such a dynamic and storied summer holiday getaway that I wanted to tap into the market and bring a fresh mix of jewelry to the island,” Runsdorf said in a statement.
The shop has also partnered with the Connecticut- and Massachusetts-based Samuel Owen/ACK Gallery to display a rotating installation of various works of art—ranging from accessibly priced pieces from local artists to works “from the likes of Damien Hirst,” according to the press release.
Jewelry and art at the ephemeral boutique will range from “$500 to over $100,000.”
