Fabergé, the most valuable egg of the world

Fabergé, jeweler who has a history entry in the History, returns with his Easter eggs magical and precious. In homage to the next centenary of the maison, the company which continues the work of the goldsmith famous for its eggs and for the masterpieces sold to Tsar, has created a remarkable new piece of jewelry. This time, however, the czars are in the Middle East: the Al-Fardan, among the most famous collectors of pearls. And here is the Faberge Egg Pearl, first egg created in “Class imperial” since 1917. The jewel is inspired by the formation of a pearl inside an oyster, and outside is made with mother of pearl. Inside is concealed a unique pearl of 12.17 carats, from the Persian Gulf of exceptional purity and with a rare shade of gray. To get this Easter egg were engaged 20 artisans. The egg is made with 139 precious pearls, 3,305 diamonds, carved rock crystal, in addition to the set of white and yellow gold. Each pearl that adorns the Faberge Egg Pearl was selected by Hussain Ibrahim Al Fardan in person and comes from his private collection. An ingenious mechanism allows the entire outer shell to rotate on its base, simultaneously with the opening of six sections and to reveal his treasure. The Pearl Egg is accompanied by a series of Faberge white pearls, diamonds and mother of pearl with a pattern comb (19.44 carats). Hussain Ibrahim Al-Fardan, group president Alfardan, does not hide his enthusiasm: “I have a passion for the natural pearls and it took me many years to build my current collection by some of the most extraordinary pearls in the world. Fabergé has a great history and has created jewelry for kings. The Fabergé Eggs are a witness as treasure of luxury and opulence of a bygone era. This is why I worked with Fabergé to combine these two treasures: Faberge and natural pearls Persian Gulf, to create an exceptional piece.” Federico Graglia
