Classically trained as a goldsmith and jewelry designer, Ruta Reifen Fine celebrates her expert artistry (all pieces are hand-carved in wax) inspired by an appreciation for organic forms and influenced by nature and the sea. The result is a distinctive, contemporary look with a fluid, romantic silhouette and feel.
Ruta Reifen’s work is noted for her contemporary designs and signature coral-like textures accented by precious stones. The designs—complemented by a synergy of form and surface —are handcrafted in 14K gold while utilizing gemstone color combinations to convey an ongoing romance with the ocean. Ruta received an honors in Jewelry Design from Shenkar College of Engineering and Design in Israel, and an MFA from the Jewelry + Metals department at the Rhode Island School of Design.
Ruta keeps her own studio practice in the Brooklyn Navy Yard and in Tel Aviv.
