Art History

In 1872, when Peter Carl Faberg (Russian, 1846-1920) was just 26, he took his fathers jewelry business in St. Petersburg. Cultivating the patronage of the last of the Romanov dynasty, Faberg created pieces that were prized not only for the value of their jewels but also for the artistry of their craftsmanship. Delicate patterns from the Faberg portfolio-notably, the jeweled Easter eggs commissioned by the Imperial Family-have been adapted for these elegant ornaments.
