Our elegant earrings are based on a striking enamel band studded with diamonds that divides the two halves of the Renaissance Egg created in the workshop of Peter Carl Fabergé (Russian, 1846–1920). The ultimate achievement of the House of Fabergé is the series of jeweled Easter eggs created for Czars Alexander III and Nicholas II of Russia. Among them, the Renaissance Egg was commissioned by czar Alexander III and presented to his wife, Maria Feodorovna on Easter Sunday, 1894.

Art HistoryPeter Carl Fabergé (Russian, 1846–1920) was 26 years, he took over his father’s jewelry business in St. Petersburg, Russia. With the help of his brother Agathon, Fabergé cultivated the patronage of the last two czars of the Romanov dynasty and the elite of Edwardian society. Peter Carl Fabergé successfully revolutionized the way jewelry was evaluated in Russia. Previously the worth of an object had been assessed strictly by the value of its precious stones and metals. Fabergé instead emphasized the creativity of its design and the workmanship involved.
