The beautiful egg, crafted in style invented by Carl Faberge – the famous jeweller of the Russian Tsars! Gilding, colored enamel, faux jewels.
The Faberge eggs began with an Easter egg made for the czar that became a gift for his wife, Czarina Maria. The egg reminded the empress of her homeland, and so from then on it was agreed that Faberge would make an Easter egg each year for Maria. Faberge designed Easter eggs for another eleven years until Alexander III died. Then Nicholas II, Alexander’s son, continued the tradition.
It was agreed that the Easter gift would always have an egg shape and would hold a surprise. The surprise was always kept secret.
