Fabergé’s Romanov necklace- a talking point in the Financial Times
This weekend, The Financial Times dubbed Fabergé’s Romanov necklace as “one of the most-buzzed about pieces being considered for Oscar night”.
In the run up to the Oscars, Fabergé’s Creative Director, Katharina Flohr told the FT that “ We have had many requests from stylists for the Oscars, it would look great on Angelina Jolie as she loves emeralds, and has recently enquired about the Gemfields emeralds used on the necklace because she likes the fact that they are ethically mined.”
The Romanov necklace is an extraordinary modern masterpiece, a regal re-imagining of an early Fabergé jewel, recreated and contemporised from an archival gouache design dated 1885.
The breathtaking composition was conjured from a dramatic collection of 79 emeralds of exceptional quality, totalling 186.85 carats, featuring specially-cut sugar-loaf cabochons and a single pear-shaped drop of 30.65 carats.
In all, the necklace is set with 2225 gemstones, totalling 363.48 carats, including 1991 round white diamonds, totalling 98.15 carats, 151 rose cut diamonds, totalling 43.29 carats, with one rose diamond of 0.67 carats and a pear-shaped rose cut of 3.48 carats.
The stunning choker detaches from the collar, allowing the two necklaces to be worn separately, while the choker can be worn alone or with the emerald drop pendant.
