Faberge Style Egg Pendant Silver and 24K Gold
Faberge style egg pendant. This exquisite miniature egg pendant is crafted of the finest silver with 24K gold overlay and guilloche enamel, an art form made famous by the master craftman, Karl Faberge, during the Imperial Russian reign of Czar Nicholas II and Czarina Alexandra. The egg is created using the 18th century French process of enameling known as 'guilloche', which involves hand application of translucent layers of enamel on a hand engraved surface.

The two stones are genuine rubies, and the enameling is a very deep navy blue. There are first quality Austrian crystals set into the Imperial eagles, the symbol of the Romanov family and into the gold ribbons. The interior of the egg depicts a model of the exterior of Catherine the Great's Gatchina Palace, St. Petersburg, Russia (environ).
