A Bit of Faberge Egg History

Faberge eggs are thousands of jewelled eggs made by House of Faberge between 1885 and 1917. The most famous Faberge eggs produced by the House were for Alexander III and Nicholas II of Russia. The eggs are not actual eggs came from animals but they are made from precious metals or hard stones decorated with enamel and gem stones. Consequently, the Faberge egg has become a symbol of wealth and luxury. The eggs are known as masterpieces of jeweller’s art. 

Today, Faberge eggs can be found in necklaces as beautiful pendants for women. I and my girlfriend found some when we were walking in a mall. She liked the designs of faberge pendants that we saw and now I know what to give her on her birthday. I’ll give her a silver necklace with Faberge pendant. For me it’s more practical to buy jewelleries than gadgets because the value gets higher.
