ODE TO FABERGÉ

Easter is the most important and celebrated holiday for the Russian Orthodox faith. It is a time of hope and renewed life. In Easter 1885, Czar Alexander III wanted to present a very special gift to his wife, Maria Fedorovna, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their love and union.

He commissioned his wife’s favorite jeweller, Peter Carl Fabergé, to create a special gift that would symbolise both their love and this special day. On Easter morning, Faberge delivered an enameled egg with a golden yolk. Inside the yolk was a golden hen, and inside the hen, a miniature royal crown of diamonds and a ruby egg.

The Czarina was so enamoured by the present that from that day on, every Easter, she was presented with a unique Fabergé egg containing a surprise fit for an Empress. In all, 56 Russian Imperial Fabergé eggs were made.

A delightful ornament for yourself – glittering with high quality Swarovski crystals. Or give it as a present for Easter, for baby showers – well just as a present for anything.
