Fabergé is renowned for creating unique decorative pieces – objet d’art, timepieces and jewelry – painting with colored gemstones and delighting with the element of surprise. Fabergé’s love of the unexpected began when Peter Carl Fabergé, artist-jeweler to the Russian Court, presented the first of his legendary Imperial Eggs, the Hen Egg, in 1885. The egg opened to reveal a golden hen set with ruby eyes, concealing a gold and diamond replica of the imperial crown, complete with a tiny ruby pendant suspended on a chain. Today’s Fabergé collections celebrate Peter Carl’s love of a life in color and his legacy of inimitable bespoke pieces, crafted by peerless workmasters, each bringing a modern twist.
