About Faberge style
Peter Carl Faberge (also known as Karl Gustavovich Faberge in Russia) was a Russian jeweler of French origin. He is probably best known for the famous Faberge eggs, made in the style of genuine Easter eggs, using precious metals and gemstones.
The eggs are made of precious metals or hard stones decorated with combination of enamel and gem stones. The term "Faberge egg" has become a synonym of luxury and the eggs are regarded as masterpieces of the jeweler's art.
Of the 65 known large Faberge eggs, only 57 have survived to the present day.
The Faberge jewelry style inspired many artists and jewelry makers around the world for more than 100 years and still is.
