SHE SELLS SEASHELLS: Eugenie Niarchos certainly knows how to dress for an occasion. For the presentation of her oceanic-themed third Venyx fine-jewelry collection, she chose to sport a pair of Charlotte Olympia “message in a bottle” platform sandals.
The Oseanyx collection, which the designer said was inspired by Ancient Greece, mixed the celestial themes of her previous designs with sea creatures like stingrays, octopi and scallop shells.
The delicate designs, in white or yellow gold, were hand-engraved to give them a vintage effect, almost as if they had spent time on the seabed themselves. These were set with pearls — what else — of varying sizes as well as stones including diamonds, moonstones, lapis lazuli and amethysts. Some of the stingray designs were even set with enamel strips that were subtle in daylight, but turned out to glow luminously in the dark.
