The story of the Faberge Egg emerged from Tsarist Russia and Peter Carl Faberge. As you probably know by now, his name has become synonymous with the egg he created.
It all started as a preferred Easter present for the last two Russian tsars. These intricately carved Imperial Eggs were made of precious metals or hard stones decorated with combinations of enamel and gem stones. The term “Faberge Egg” has since become a synonym of luxury and the eggs are regarded as masterpieces of the jeweler’s art. Over the years, many have shown their appreciation for these beautifully crafted jeweled eggs by creating replicas for the masses who wanted to gaze upon the beauty of these magnificent Faberge eggs but did not have the wealth to purchase an original. By and large these reproductions are facinating and would make even Peter Carl Faberge proud that his art has been made affordable and available for all to enjoy.
