Fabergé between secret gardens for a few and colors for someone more ♦ ︎
On May 30, 2017 was celebrated the 171th anniversary of the birth of Peter Carl Fabergé, a great Russian jeweler who marked an era with his sophisticated craftsmanship. The Maison, which is famous for the precious eggs that were commissioned by the Tsar, since 2012 has become the property of Gemfields, a giant of gems market. And ownership change seems to be a success: in the first quarter of fiscal year, Fabergé jumped up of 63% of sales volumes. I also deserve the choices of the artistic direction, which has alongside the High Jewelery propose collections more traditional. As is the case with one of the latest novelties, such as the Three Colors of Love collection.
What are the three colors of love? Obviously, red rubies, blue sapphires and green emeralds, precious stones Gemfield extracts in its mines. If, however, the white of the diamonds is added, the colors would be four. But traditional diamonds are considered colorless and so the account returns. In some cases, the rings in the collection have a gold stem with small grooves, that are definite “genuinely distinctive and contemporary” finishing. The prices of this collection start at 2500 euros, to reach up to tens of thousands of euros for pieces with big gemstones.
Alongside such collections as traditional style, Fabergé continues its tradition of High Jewelery. As in the case of the Secret Garden line, which includes an unusual mix of materials, with gold and diamonds along with hard stones and nail polish. Rudy Serra
