New York-based jeweler, Nina Runsdorf, who is known equally for her exquisite taste in jewelry as she is for her eye for art, is opening a pop-up jewelry shop in Nantucket this weekend. Starting today, at 5 Chestnut Street, Runsdorf will open Nantucket Rocks featuring her own designs as well as those of Buddha Mamma, Jordan Alexander, Sorellina, Pamela Huizenga, Arunashi, and Katherine Jetter.
“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,” said Runsdorf in a statement. “I asked seven brands, all of which have their own unique and original take on design, to be part of this summer retail venture.”
And it wouldn’t be a Runsdorf affair without the crème de la crème of the art world being involved. The designer has partnered with Samuel Owen of ACK Gallery to display a rotating art installation that will feature everyone from various local artists to works by Damien Hirst.
The 850-square-foot boutique will be open until Labor Day featuring jewelry that will range in price from $500 to over $100,000. And if Nantucket Rocks is curated as well as Runsdorf’s own art and jewelry collections, then this will be a shop not to be missed.
