The charmed world of Les Saisons Russes is inhabited by the lively gem-encrusted dancing, skating figures of the Lara clip-pendants. Each enchanting and characterful figure is dressed in an elaborate costume, inspired by the richness of traditional embroidered and embellished Russian costumes, set with diamonds, rose diamonds, pearls and a variety of coloured stones. The Fabergé Laras tell stories, of a girl skating on the frozen Neva river and wintry lakes, wrapped in her gem-covered layers with hat and mittens, or exploring Russian forests, draped in a woven and vibrant shawl of brightly coloured gemstones, reminiscent of the 18th century hand-painted depictions on lacquered boxes of scenes taken from poetry of Pushkin, giving a sense of the Bohemian life at Talashkino.
