The Fabergé Imperial Collection is inspired by the jewelled splendour of the Imperial Romanov court, and evokes the rhythms of the Russian seasons, whether literal or metaphorical.
Exploring Peter Carl Fabergé’s world in turn-of-the-century Russia, with its compelling mix of nostalgia and joy, its revelry in Old Russian traditions, crafts, fable and folklore, this poetic collection also draws on the well-defined seasons of the year, each with its own celebrations and rituals, an ode to the rhythms of nature that shaped the Russian lifestyle, the leisured luxury of country estates, the glittering splendour of winter balls. The jewels, in true Fabergé style, demonstrate an intuitive interplay of rare coloured precious gems, diamonds and pearls with superlative hand artisanship, to capture and reflect the changing light, colours and atmosphere of each season.
Belle Époque elements like garlands, scrolls, ribbons, tassels, crests, crowns and Russian tiaras bestow refined opulence upon this collection of
personal possessions and gifts, illuminating the captivating world of Fabergé, linking past, present and future.
