After almost 100 years, Fabergé hatched a new egg, this time pearlescent

The first two Fabergé eggs were made according to the wishes of the Russian tsar, but Fabergé had a completely free hand with all the others.

It took 99 years at the Fabergé jewelry house to hatch a new jeweler's work of art, a pearl imperial egg made of 139 small white pearls and more than 3,300 diamonds, accompanied by other precious stones. The last one dates back to the reign of the Russian Tsar Nicholas II, when such eggs were toys of the ruling families. It was presented at the watch and jewelry exhibition in Doha, and will start looking for its buyer at the auction.

A famous jeweler Fabergé she took quite a lot for the new egg, this time sprinkled with pearls and diamonds 99 years. The last copy bears the year 1916, and it is about the egg that the emperor Nicholas II ordered for his wife Alexandra. The orders were interrupted by the Russian revolution, which was then brewing in the background of Tsarist Russia and took away all future buyers. Well, the new egg will go on soon auction with an estimated value 1.7 million euros, but you will certainly have to add a few more euros if you want to own it, especially if we remember that the last example that changed hands was sold for more than 16 million euros in 2007, the last imperial egg, otherwise discovered by accident, last year it was unofficially even 26 million euros. The new imperial egg was created as a tribute to the upcoming jubilee, 100th anniversary of the last order, but Fabergé does not intend to stop there.

This year, among other things, also passes 130 years from the first example made (Fabergé is supposed to have made them 50, 43 of them survived the revolution), easter egg, which the Tsar gave to Maria, his wife Alexander III, the father of Nicholas II, who then started the traditional family giving, which continued until the bitter end of Tsarist Russia. Even today, especially in the times we live in, the egg is a symbol of exaggeration with luxury.
