Watch the Fascinating Journey of a Fabergé Egg
Fabergé‘s coveted eggs have been a symbol of uttermost decadence for nearly two centuries. At long last, for those who have wondered about how the famous eggs came to be, the brand just revealed a short film, The Journey of an Egg, as part of its series on the making of its enchanting Palais Tsarskoye Selo Turquoise Locket — the turquoise locket with diamonds and a petite red heart inside is one of the jewelry maker’s signatures.
The design first starts off in London where Liisa Tallgren paints the delicate design with watercolor painting. It then heads to Germany where the mold is filled with gold by hand. The video even shows an artisan making the enamel and painting the small piece, an intricate process that makes the final result all the more satisfying — the meticulous job can take up to five layers and firings and as long as two days to produce one model. The finished piece is comprised of 19 karat gold and 16 diamonds.
The Palais Tsarskoye Selo Turquoise Locket with Heart Surprise is available now and can be purchased at Faberge.com and select global retailers. Watch the video above now.
