Dryada

MEANDER INTO VENYX’S MYTHOLOGICAL WOODLAND

“Sweet echo, sweetest nymph, that liv’st unseen within thy airy shell, by slow meander’s margent green, and in the violet-embroidered vale.” – John Milton.

Join VENYX on a journey into a mythological Greek woodland, where Dryad nymphs and spirits wander among the trees and metamorphosise into beautiful goddess form. The new DRYADA collection takes inspiration from the original dryad spirit, and the beauty and enchantment of the natural world.

Centre to this story is Dendritic Agate: a natural agate characterised by brown and black branch-like inclusions. Although many think the agate’s delicate etchings are painted, they are natural and innate to the stone, created by iron oxide or manganese, and form their own unique earth-born signature.

Using the Agate as canvas, Creative Director Eugenie Niarchos has constructed intricate mini landscapes, working with 18ct yellow gold, tourmaline, diamond, black rhodium, sapphire and amethyst to paint a picture reminiscent of vintage cameo jewellery, instead with nature as its portrait and diamond or precious stone as its frame.

October is for Opals

Imagine being free… free to go anywhere and everywhere, as your imagination takes you – not just location-wise but time-wise. Free to travel back in time to the elegance of the 20s and retro 50s or to meet heroes of history. Free to travel forwards in time too, and explore wondrous planets and secret galaxies. Eugenie Niarchos captures these liberating opportunities in her jewellery creations, subtly and serenely combining retro and futuristic aesthetics. Small attentive details inspire concepts with clean, uncluttered lines to redefine past as present. The result is a story artistically told by Eugenie as she translates the ordinary into something extraordinary. A keen traveller, Eugenie collects inspiring imagery from her many journeys and carefully nurtures them on Venyx world as the starting point for her fine jewellery creations. Merging classical and the antique with modern concepts is the aim, with future creations set to include jewels and high-tech bejewelled objects. Welcome to our mystical planet.
