Fabergé Making Jeweled Eggs Again, Plans New York Store

Famed jeweler Fabergé is unveiling its first new collection
of jeweled eggs since 1917, it announced July 11.

The company also plans to open up a store in London, which
would be the first Fabergé store in the city since its Bond Street store closed
in 1915. A retail location is actively being sought in New York City, the company
added.

The new jeweled egg collection pays homage to
the legendary eggs created by Peter Carl Fabergé for Russia’s ruling Romanov
family
. The egg is the symbol of rebirth and the jeweled creations marked
the renewal of spring after the long, harsh Russian winter.  

The collection, titled “Les Fameux de Fabergé,” will retail
for up to $600,000, and will be exhibited at Fabergé in Geneva from July 18 to
Aug. 20.

Fabergé is also launching “Les Frissons de Fabergé,” a
collection of egg pendants
, with around 60 different designs at lower price points.

Fabergé was relaunched nearly two years ago in conjunction
with the Fabergé family. The
company’s principal shareholder is Pallinghurst Resources
, a natural
resource investment company that is also a shareholder in colored gem producer
Gemfields.

“It has been our family’s life ambition to restore the
unsurpassed standards of [the Fabergé] design and workmanship and these egg pendants are
a momentous achievement,” said Sarah Fabergé, great granddaughter of Peter Carl
Fabergé, in a statement. “We have been waiting for this moment for a very long
time.”
