A Fabergé egg is a highly ornate and intricate jeweled egg, typically made of precious metals and gemstones, created by the House of Fabergé, a renowned jewelry firm in Russia. These eggs are known for their exquisite craftsmanship, intricate design, and historical significance. The most famous Fabergé eggs were made for the Russian Imperial family as Easter gifts between 1885 and 1917.
The tradition of creating Fabergé eggs began in 1885 when Tsar Alexander III of Russia commissioned Peter Carl Fabergé to create an elaborate Easter egg as a gift for his wife, Empress Maria Feodorovna. The success of the eggs led to an annual tradition where Fabergé was commissioned to create a new egg each year, often with a surprise or intricate detail hidden within. Fabergé eggs are now considered some of the most valuable and iconic pieces of decorative art, with some selling for tens of millions of dollars at auctions.
Our richly colored miniature eggs are inspired by these creations. We also offer a jewelry set that was inspired by the flower decorations of an elaborate music box made by the firm of Carl Fabergé. The box was given to Prince Feliks and Princess Zinaida Iusupov by their two sons on their 25th wedding anniversary. Our collection for Fabergé inspired jewelry was inspired by the collection at the Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens.
