The famous Fabergé egg was born in 1885 when Tsar Alexander III commissioned a bejeweled Easter egg for his wife, the Empress consort Maria. Imperial court jeweler Carl Fabergé and his craftsmen created a magnificent egg that opened to reveal further treasures. It was such a success that Fabergé was named "goldsmith by special appointment to the Imperial Crown" in 1886. He and his workshop created many designs not only for Russian nobility, but also for European dignitaries and the Fabergé shops. These imaginatively designed eggs were meticulously crafted in gold and silver with enamel, precious gems, and semiprecious stones. Our richly colored miniature egg pendant is inspired by these creations. Each is gold-finished pewter with blue enamel and a 18" chain.
Handmade in Thailand in the Fabergé tradition. 18" brass chain with spring ring clasp. Approximately 7/8"L x 1/2"W pendant.
