Jeweler Nina Runsdorf takes up residence in cult London boutique Alex Eagle Studio.
On Tuesday, a limited run of special Runsdorf earring designs will arrive on Alex Eagle’s cases – all facilitated by jewelry consultancy The Stax. The collection was envisioned as a family heirloom project: Runsdorf designed the nails at an appropriate scale for children and adults to allow for intergenerational sharing.
The five-piece stud earring collection includes aquamarines, peridots, moonstones, pearls and rubies, each sculpted to feature a diamond set in the middle. The stones represent all the birthstones of Runsdorf’s children, Eagle and The Stax founder, Victoria Lampley.
“The partnership started with Victoria’s wonderful idea of connecting us with Alex, who brought an immense amount of passion and creativity to the project. We came up with the idea of celebrating the relationship between mother and daughter with the use of birthstones, designed in a way that reflects our love of effortless luxury,” Runsdorf said.
“I am thrilled to have connected the aesthetic worlds of my dear friend Alex Eagle and one of my favorite jewelry designers, Nina Runsdorf. Each earring in the collection features a different precious birthstone belonging to and named after our daughters, and is the perfect size to be worn from childhood. Needless to say, watching this partnership manifesto has brought me so much joy and pride, and I can’t wait to see what will come next. happen,” Lampley said.
The designs were developed and manufactured in New York, where Runsdorf is based. Prices range from around $850 to $1,200.
