The First Imperial Faberge Pearl Egg Will Make You Go WOW!
The Faberge Pearl Egg, the first Imperial Egg created in 99 years is finally available for your eyes!
In a year (era) where pearls and diamonds are in rage, here comes this beauty. Created by the world’s most iconic artist jeweler, Faberge Pearl Egg is the most precious and coveted objets d’art.
99 years ago, in 1916, jeweler Faberge delivered the Military Egg, their last imperial creation for Tsar Nicholas II.
That was just few months before the Russian Revolution that removed Nicholas II from power and forced his abdication in 1917.
Even though the things turned up badly for the Tsar, delivery of that last imperial egg is worthy of a celebration, for its stunning beauty and creativity.
The company which was founded in Russia is renowned for making the decorative arty eggs that were originally made to be exchanged as gifts during Easter presents among the elite.
Made by the House of Faberge because they wanted to pay homage to the forthcoming centenary of the last Faerge Imperial Eggs ever delivered, which makes the egg is quite unique.
Partnered with the Al-Fardan family, one of the most renowned collectors of pearls, the company designed the first egg created in the “Imperial Class” since 1917.
Priced at $2 million, the bejeweled object gets its inspiration from the formation of a pearl within an oyster.
The egg’s mother-of-pearl exterior opens to reveal a unique grey pearl of 12.17 carats, sourced from the Arabian Gulf and exhibiting exceptional purity and a highly unusual shade of grey.
It has taken 20 highly skilled craftsmen from jewelers, diamond setters and designers to complete the project.
Ornamented with 139 fine white pearls with golden lustre, 3,305 diamonds and set in white and yellow gold, the egg is carved rock crystal.
The masterpiece is complemented with a Fabergé necklace made of white pearls, diamonds and mother of pearl featuring a scallop motif. The neck-piece is finished with an exquisite 19.44 carat white pearl drop.
Fabergé is delighted to celebrate these “jewels of the sea” in the exquisite Fabergé Pearl Egg which has been unveiled at the ongoing Doha Watch and Jewelry Exhibition.
Accompanying the pearl egg is an extravagant Fabergé necklace of white pearls, diamonds and mother of pearl featuring a scallop motif, and finished with an exquisite 19.44 carat white pearl drop.
According to Fabergé records 50 eggs in total were commissioned by the Russian Imperial family over two generations, and 43 of them survived the Russian Revolution.
The last Imperial egg to be auctioned reportedly went for more than $30 million when sold last year after being found in a jumble sale. And the last officially known price for an egg was $18.5 million, which was sold at Christie’s in London in 2007.
