Egg Pendants

The egg, perfect in form and carrying within it a new life, has been a universal symbol of rebirth for thousands of years. In imperial Russia, where the Orthodox Christian Easter celebrating the Resurrection of Christ was the most important holiday of the year, gaily decorated eggs were exchanged with the glad tidings, "Christ is Risen!" It remained for the Romanov Czars to raise this charming custom to the level of imperial luxury. And Peter Carl Fabergé, jewelry extraordinary, was the guiding genius responsible for these ultimate Easter eggs, aptly described by Rita Reif, antiques editor of The New York Times, as "glittering baubles made for a Czar." As "eggs" they are perhaps the most extravagant expression of a centuries-old traidion; as objects they mark on e of the crowning achievements of the art of the goldsmith and the jewelry. Below you will find our collection of Fabergé style egg pendants. These are all hand-made in St. Petersburg, Russia. They are made of silver, gold, and other semi-precious stones along with enamel. The designs are based on the original Fabergé eggs made for Czars!
