When it comes to jeweled eggs, no one can beat the decorated egg maker Peter Karl Fabergé who is famous for his Easter eggs. Earlier we have seen many bejewlled eggs like Faberge egg that was supposed to fetch $18 million. The celebrated jewelry house, Fabergé, lately revealed a new assortment of its High Jewelry Egg Pendants—the first such collection to abide the genuine Fabergé name since 1917.
Designed by Fabergé, the collection has 12 one-of-a-kind egg pendants that symbolize one for each year, and is called Les Fameux de Fabergé. The eggs are created to pay honor to the well-known Majestic Eggs created by Peter Carl Fabergé for the Romanov family of Russia which is a treat for true collectors. The first among the 50 world famous majestic Faberge eggs was the "Hen Egg" of 1885.
The eggs are specially created by pushing boundaries of manufacturing and design as the fabrication process involves a lengthy and challenging method. Wonderfully crafted bejeweled with modern craftsmanship, each egg recites its own story.
Each egg is made of high quality and authentic gems and is adorned with exquisite diamonds. The main base material used in creating eggs is titanium that weighs less than a diamond, coated with 66.4 carats of intricately cut white diamonds of high clarity. Amongst the 12 eggs, the most expensive one is the Diaghilev Egg that is encrusted with diamond circles and rubies and costs $600,000.
This special project is being supervised by the Peter Carl Faberge's great granddaughter Sarah Faberge, and the investment part is majorly done by Pallinghurst Resources who is Faberge's main shareholder.
The chairmen of Pallinghurst Resources Brian Gilbertson said, "A Faberge egg remains one of the truly iconic objects in jewelry history and "We are committed to reviving the true Faberge heritage and building Faberge into a world leading, fabulous brand."
This beautiful collection of eggs will be displayed at the Fabergé boutique in Geneva from July 18 till August 21 and each egg will retail from $100,000 to $600,000.
