Together, they transformed it into an international phenomenon that went on to create some of the world’s most notable and famous designs. Their origin was during a time when the fashionable choice of diamonds was becoming monotonous and customers were dreaming of designs filled with colour using precious gemstones and enamel. Fabergé ensured that their Imperial eggs and jewellery designs were made to the finest standard and remained irresistible objects own by only the most worthy.

In 1885, Peter Carl Fabergé was commissioned to create elaborate Fabergé eggs for the Russian Tsars. Tsar Alexander III was the first to request an Easter Egg as a gift for his wife, the Empress Maria Feodorovna. Thanks to the breathtaking creation that was presented to the royals, the tradition of the Tsar giving his Empress an Easter Egg continued for many years. In total, the House of Fabergé created 50 Imperial eggs for Alexander III to present to his Empress and for Nicholas II to present to his mother, the Dowager Empress Maria Feodorovna and his wife the Empress Alexandra Feodorovna. Following this, the House of Fabergé was bestowed with the coveted title “Goldsmith by special appointment to the Imperial Crown”.

Fabergé Jewellery

Fabergé jewellery is something that has to be seen to be believed and something that is difficult to miss when adorned on the body. The breathtaking designs are inspired by Fabergé’s original jewelled masterpieces and capture the refinement, cultural richness and technical perfection that has made the brand so renowned. Traditional, often complex, materials and techniques such as enamelling, hand graving, invisible setting and intricate pave work make up the signature elements of their colourful and opulent jewellery collections.

The Fabergé Heritage jewellery collection is a favourite with many for its eloquent and playful pieces that tribute the original Fabergé Imperial Eggs created by Peter Carl Faberge. You can find these Faberge eggs in the form of charms, necklaces, rings, earrings and bracelets crafted from 18 carat gold and decorated in enamel, diamonds and other precious gemstones. The Fabergé Rococo jewellery collection is another fine example of the brand’s artistry and transforms the renowned 18th century rococo style into a more contemporary look. It continues to take inspiration from the gold scrolls featured on the legendary Rocaille Egg that was originally created in 1902 for Russian heiress Varvara Kelkh. The Rococo pieces are designed to be easy to wear and celebrate the tradition of meticulous craftsmanship for which Fabergé is famous.
