A FABERGÉ EASTER AT HARRODS
Harrods, the world’s most famous department store, and the iconic artist jeweller Fabergé, come together for a creative collaboration this Easter. 'Fabergé Easter' will see an exquisite Fabergé salon and exhibition space set up in Harrods, with the famed Brompton Road windows and façade dressed in Fabergé flags, telling the story of the legendary jewellery house. 'A Fabergé Easter at Harrods' will run from 1st to 21st April 2014.
The collaboration will celebrate the art of gifting, which is at the heart of both prestigious names. The window displays will showcase the fascinating world of Fabergé from its famed Imperial Easter Eggs and glittering Royal clientele, to today’s contemporary jewellery creations. From its inception, the pioneering jewellery house created pieces that delighted some of the world’s most refined clientele, such as the Russian Imperial Court. Fabergé soon became the jeweller du jour for the international nobility and aristocracy of the time, and the gift of choice for special family occasions and official royal visits. The windows will trace the story of these memorable gifts and their illustrious recipients. Harrods is celebrated as the ultimate destination for gift buyers, and so the art of gifting continues today with the 'Fabergé Easter' collaboration.
Fabergé and Harrods continue to make history this Easter by exhibiting a rare masterpiece, an original Fabergé Egg – The Apple Blossom Egg, together with other historic Fabergé treasures. This Egg was designed in 1901 and is beautifully crafted in gold, diamonds and nephrite. This is the very first time these rare masterpieces will be exhibited in the UK and in a non–museum environment.
A luxurious Fabergé salon will house the jewellery collection of one-of-a-kind, collectible pieces designed for Fabergé by Parisian artist jeweller Frédéric Zaavy. The much coveted collection will be showcased in its entirety for the first time since its creation, as a tribute to the late Frédéric Zaavy.
A Fabergé 'Egg Bar' will offer customers an opportunity to discover the iconic egg pendants, while a bespoke in-store engraving service will allow clients to personalise precious gold egg pendants with a special message of their choice. A digital space will surprise and delight visitors.
To celebrate the extravaganza, Fabergé has created a limited-edition Spiral Tassel Pendant, available exclusively at Harrods from 1st April 2014. The modern, playful, diamond-set egg comes with a stunning gemstone tassel, finished with amethyst, tsavorite, or spinel.
'A Fabergé Easter at Harrods' runs from 1st to 21st April 2014 at 87-135 Brompton Road, Knightsbridge, London SW1X 7XL, United Kingdom. The Fabergé Salon will be located at Door 9, Ground Floor, Harrods.
Fabergé collections are available online or in our international boutiques.
