Zhivago is suite of all-white jewels, in white gold, diamonds and Akoya pearls, featuring an intricate snowflake motif capturing the spirit of the vast, white enchanted stillness of the Russian winter that had long inspired fable and folklore. These intricately vivacious jewels conjure images of sleighs or troikas and their tinkling bells; the thick blanket of sparkling snow that settled over the cupolas or onion domes of Moscow and Saint Petersburg, turning them into glittering jewels; parties, balls and banquets, alive with candlelight and fires. The snowflake, or ice crystal, is a celebrated Fabergé motif, an emotive feature of the 1913 Imperial Winter Egg, designed at the time, along with a series of stunning snowflake pendants, by Alma Pihl.
