The penthouse at the Chateau Marmont was overflowing with stylish starlets Wednesday night as actresses Mena Suvari, Katie Cassidy, Monet Mazur and a slew of other celebs celebrated the launch of the new Roman Luxe jewelry collection. The event, which featured floral displays adorned with Roman Luxe rings, necklaces and bracelets, was co-hosted by and blogger Karla Deras of Karla’s Closet.

The new line, which features some pieces designed by Deras, is the debut jewelry collection from Roman & Sunstone, a fine jewelry, sterling silver and fashion distributor. Deras is slated to design a 12-piece capsule collection each season to complement Roman Luxe’s main pieces. So far, she’s done a collection for fall 2012 called ‘Power to the Python’ and one for the holiday season named ‘Lapis of Luxury.’


‘Power to the Python’ includes gold-bordered faux python fabric triangles in the form of bracelet charms, rings and necklace pendants ($44 to $110). Each piece brings to mind an ancient Roman goddess and makes a statement with oversized, chunky triangles. Suvari walked the party in a pair of hoop earrings with triangle drop ($44), while Mazur accessorized her svelte, all-black outfit with the python cuff bracelet ($77), shown right.

Collar necklaces, fluted dome rings and clip earrings adorned with blue crystal stones make up the ‘Lapis of Luxury’ holiday line, not yet available for sale. Cassidy accessorized her look with the Lapis duo ring with crystal stones, while actress Jamie Chung wore the collar necklace with crystal stones, both from “Lapis of Luxury.”
