With this first collection of contemporary cufflinks, Fabergé brings its passion for craftsmanship and inventive design into the realm of men’s accessories. With characteristic Fabergé wit and verve, the collection links both to historic designs for cufflinks and dress-sets created by the House of Fabergé, and also to the famous Fabergé cigarette cases. The collection channels signature Fabergé themes, including the signature egg form, materials, including hardstones, gold and gems, and techniques, like stone carving and engraving, into a wide and tempting choice of elegant, witty, and precious cufflinks, intended to become a perfect personal expression of masculine individuality.
Fabergé has always enjoyed an enthusiastic male following. Jewelled works of art specifically for gentlemen were an important element of Peter Carl Fabergé’s prodigious output, as legendary goldsmith to the Russian Imperial Court. He created jewels and objects for the Tzars, Alexander III and then Nicholas II, as well as for kings and princes around the globe, and the great tycoons and industrialists of the day. Amongst his vast repertoire were many sets of elegant cufflinks and gem-set dress sets for evening wear, and these have served as inspiration for this contemporary collection, along with the celebrated Fabergé cigarette cases, with their exquisitely refined yet masculine goldwork, ribbed, swirled, textured, coloured, which became the most elegant and fashionable male accessories in Fabergé’s world.
