NINA RUNSDORF was born and raised in New York and launched her first collection in 2005. After working in the fashion industry for several years she learned about gemstones working closely with her father in law at Runsdorf Associates. Nina created the flip ring that instantly became a brand staple. She is well known for her elegant, one of a kind jewelry pieces crafted from precious and semi precious stones. In 2009 she started to include Slice Diamonds into her line, which became a signature component to her brand. Runsdorf believes that every gemstone has a personality and is never too precious to wear.
