Enameled Egg Necklaces

Enameled Egg Necklaces
Imperial court jeweler Carl Faberge and his craftsmen created magnificent eggs of various designs, not only for Russian nobility, but also for European dignitaries and the Faberge shops. In 1885, the House of Faberge was granted an annual commission by Czar Alexander III to produce eggs for the Imperial family. These imaginatively designed eggs were meticulously crafted in gold and solver enamel, precious gems, and semiprecious stones. These richly colored miniature eggs are inspired by these creations.
