Viera
This collection of majestic single stone rings, each set with a spectacular coloured stone in an exquisitely refined diamond mount, is inspired by the story of the Viera, a hoard of original Fabergé jewels discovered in 1990 in an old Moscow mansion at 13 Solyanka Street. The jewels, of platinum, gems and pearls, many still with their Fabergé price tags attached, were found inside two battered, old candy tins, wrapped in decayed pre-Revolutionary posters. The Moscow mansion had once been owned by a wealthy merchant, connoisseur, and Fabergé client, known as the 'Sugar King’. As the Russian Revolution took hold, the jewels were carefully hidden in a wall, under a windowsill, only to be discovered once again so many years later during renovation of the mansion.
