Amazing Easter Eggs from Fabergé.

Fabergé is renowned for its artistic jewellery designs and especially their masterpiece, the Fabergé egg.

Peter Carl Fabergé, born in 1846 in Russia was a legendary jewellery designer and the artist behind the world’s famous company Fabergé. Peter Carl Fabergé was educated in St Petersburg and Dresden where he got a lot of his inspiration from the Renaissance and Baroque treasures. He travelled a lot and in Paris he received lots of amazing expert tuition from goldsmiths around the world namely from France, Germany and England, this was also a way of forming his way of designing lovely and different pieces never seen before.

He later became the official goldsmith to the Russian Imperial Court, it was here were he created iconic jewelleries and created lovely objects such as the famous Imperial Easter Eggs. He became very famous for his use of artistic colours in gemstones and enamel use in his designs, this attracted the royalties and the upper class both in Paris, London, America Moscow and the Far East and soon Fabergé were on everybody’s lips.

In 1917, the Russian Revolution brought an end to Fabergé and the company had to close down and Peter Carl Fabergé together with his family had to escape Russia. As a consequence of the revolution and following Peter Carl Fabergé’s death, his heirs was denied their right to use the Fabergé name. However, in 2007 the company was brought back to life by new owners and the original philosophy, values and aesthetics therefore exist today.

To me, the story of Fabergé is both sad and very fascinating. It is a tale of how a jewellery company had to struggle because of a political climate, leaving the jewelleries with a context and story to tell.

Today Fabergé draws inspiration from its past and the company is still a very luxury brand providing jewelleries of great creativity, design and unbelievable craftsmanship.

See all the magnificent Easter eggs below all from Fabergé, in different types of gold, different coloured gemstones and enamel.

Enjoy the master pieces!
