Nina Runsdorf Is Summering At Sotheby’s East Hampton


New luxury jewels from designer Nina Runsdorf’s body of work are embarking on a limited two-week sojourn by the seashore. From July 2 to 18, they’ll be be on view at Sotheby’s East Hampton—a natural showcase for the jewelry, given that Runsdorf is a resident of East Hampton and an avid collector of contemporary art and modernist design objects. Both have had a strong influence on the look and feel of her line since its founding in 2005.

During the sale, Runsdorf will be the sole jewelry artist represented among the gallery’s curated works.

“I am thrilled that such an iconic organization has decided to spotlight my work,” Runsdorf said in a prepared statement ahead of the collection debut. “Throughout my career it has been of paramount importance to design jewelry that is rich in storytelling and created with sophisticated ease for everyday wear, which undoubtedly will thrive in Sotheby’s East Hampton’s beautiful and culturally compelling space.”

Frank Everett, Sotheby’s sales director of jewelry said in a statement that Runsdorf’s jewels “beautifully capture the spirit of summer” and perfectly complement the “whimsical mix of art, design, and luxury goods” that he and his team have installed in the Hamptons gallery.

The jewelry encompasses new works developed specifically for the exhibition, including a 113 ct. emerald necklace and select pieces from Runsdorf’s All That Is collection—18k yellow gold, everyday-wearable, and designed to provide the foundation for a curated mix or stack of jewelry styles.

Also on view: eye-catching editions of her signature Flip ring (pictured at top), and Tree of Life, a celebration of Runsdorf’s 15th anniversary in business, designed to evoke dreamlike holidays by the sea.
