Our elegant Russian Imperial Swirl Egg Pendant is based on an original necklace, which is set with pearls, small pink enamel beads, and diamonds in silver mounts; a Miniature Swirl Egg is suspended from the necklace. 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. These delicate “works of fantasy” often memorialized important occasions in the reign of the Imperial Romanov family.

Art HistoryIn 1872 when Peter Carl Fabergé was only twenty-six years old, 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. 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 design creativity and workmanship involved.
