Description

The Museum's Russian Imperial Jeweled Earrings are based on one of the motifs on the Imperial Renaissance Egg from the workshop of Peter Carl Fabergé (Russian, 1846–1920). The Imperial Renaissance Egg was probably inspired by a sixteenth-century casket known to Fabergé from his student days in Dresden. The chalcedony egg is ornamented with Renaissance-style decorations, brilliantly enameled in translucent colors and opaque white, and set with diamonds and cabochon rubies. It rests on a gold base with loop handles hanging from gold lion masks. Set in rose diamonds on the top of the egg, the date 1894 commemorates the year czar Alexander III presented the egg to his wife, Maria Feodorovna.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them!! Love these. Well made. Crystals look bigger and are much dazzling. This is my second pair. Bought them on a visit 2 years ago and lost one. Missed them so ordered this second pair!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely beautiful and unique. Bought as a birthday gift for my daughter and she loved it. I wanted to keep it for myself -- at least was tempted to.
