The Return of the Fabergé Egg

Bejewelled, superbly crafted, each with its own intriguing story, and full of surprises, the first in a series of Couture Egg Pendants herald Springtime in the new Saisons Russes High Jewellery Collection from Fabergé, the jewellery and objects house that embraces creativity, craftsmanship and heritage.  The egg pendants, the first to bear the authentic Fabergé name since 1917, represent rebirth, new life that bursts forth in spring, welcomed and celebrated after the long, harsh Russian winter.

Paying homage to the legendary Imperial Eggs created by Peter Carl Fabergé for the Romanov family, and celebrating the Egg as a timeless universal symbol of life, Fabergé has designed a collection of one-of-a-kind High Jewellery Egg Pendants, Les Fameux de Fabergé, each illustrating a traditional Russian proverb, through complex, multi-layered concepts brought to life by the finest craftsmanship in the world today. The first of these creations, launched in Paris, during Couture Week, July 2011, mark the beginning of a series of twelve High Jewellery Egg Pendants, one for every month of the year. Each egg pendant, a wearable object of desire, involves a lengthy, exacting and in many cases pioneering fabrication process, pushing boundaries of both design and manufacture, and taking  contemporary craftsmanship to a new level of sophistication. read more ...
