BEASTS AND BAUBLES: Eugenie Niarchos will host a cocktail party to celebrate the launch of her Venyx jewelry collection at the Art Deco brasserie Minim’s on July 1.

The 26-year-old socialite, who is the great-granddaughter of Gloria Guinness and counts among her closest friends Margherita Missoni and Tatiana Santo Domingo, is no stranger to jewelry design. She has already collaborated with Gaia Repossi on two capsule collections and two costume jewelry lines for Azzaro, under Vanessa Seward.

Niarchos’ first solo line, called Reptilia, includes 14 rings, one necklace and two pairs of earrings, inspired by the patterns formed by reptile skins and shells.

“It is not about the shape of the animal, it is about the beauty of its skin,” said Niarchos.

Encrusted diamonds render the turtle shells of the Madagascar ring, while gold and sapphires give roughness to the Chamaeleo ring. Prices range from 600 to 6,000 pounds, or $912 to $9,120 at current exchange. Niarchos’ next collection will focus on natural elements, such as falling stars, lightning and clouds. Said the designer, “I am inspired by details of all beautiful things in nature.”
