FROM FABERGÉ WITH LOVE
I visited Fabergé boutique in Mayfair wearing fabulous Ulyana Sergeenko dress and Misha Valenki. Having provided jewels which document the world’s greatest love stories, Fabergé is offering something special this Valentine’s Day! A complimentary dinner will be offered for all purchases made by 14th February 2014. Liza’s favourite part: in the spirit of Fabergé’s tradition of surprise, the special gift can be delivered at the dinner! To our surprise prices for Fabergé treasures start from £2k.
My favourite pieces are treillage diamond ring features white round diamonds set in 18 carat polished rose gold and of course impératrice sapphire pendant features round blue sapphires set in 18 carat blackened white gold. The pendant is inspired by the jewelled splendour of the Imperial Romanov court, and evokes the rhythms of the Russian seasons.
Peter Carl Fabergé, goldsmith to the Russian Imperial Court, was the creative and entrepreneurial genius! The story of Fabergé is inextricably linked to the lives, loves and tragedy of the last Romanov Tsar Nicholas II and his Empress Alexandra, and to the Russian Revolution. In 1917, the Russian Revolution brought a violent end not only to the Romanov dynasty but also to the House of Fabergé. The Bolsheviks seized the Fabergé workshops and their treasures, all production was closed down and Peter Carl Fabergé and his family fled from Russia. Today, with Katharina Flohr as Creative and Managing Director, and her in-house creative team, Fabergé is forging a fresh yet strong identity. Paying homage to Peter Carl Fabergé’s genius as a visionary artist-jeweller, and benefiting from the expertise and guidance of Tatiana and Sarah Fabergé, his great-grand-daughters. See for yourself!
At Fabergé, the ring, symbol of power and eternity, the jewel a wearer can see and enjoy herself, becomes an object of desire.
Les Favorites de Fabergé, capturing the blossoming of Spring time, encompasses an exaggerated range of rare materials with a sumptuous colour palette, and playfully borrows from Fabergé’s favourite influences of Rococo, 18th century, and the artistic expressions of Russia’s Silver Age.
The evocative designs, with their soft, tactile and gem-set quilting, represent the perfect marriage of heritage and modernity that is so much part of Fabergé’s ethos today.
The Treillage Collection is inspired by the Diamond Trellis Egg, created by Fabergé in 1892. The trellis pattern also featured on Fabergé cigarette cases, parasol handles and picture frames, becoming a signature Fabergé motif.
Fabergé makes the most of the creative freedom offered by the brooch, reinterpreting this most iconic and expressive of jewels for today’s contemporary mood, fashion and style, showing how the brooch can be worn with verve and panache, in unexpected ways and places.
The Emotion Collection, infused with intense colour, explores the intellectual and artistic richness of Fabergé’s world. These bold and daring jewels, pushing the boundaries of design and craftsmanship in true Fabergé spirit, explore Bohemian, Impressionist and Fauvist views of vivid colour as an emotional force and an expression of feeling.
