The world's most famous Russian eggs will be on the menu at the pop-up Fabergé Egg Bar at Harrods until 28 March 2015.

Fabergé is enjoying a new lease of life and offers visitors to Harrods a unique interactive experience with a 3D projection of a giant, man-sized egg. Allowing you to take on the role of artist Carl Fabergé for a few minutes, you can customise your egg with different patterns and colours at the Fabergé Interactive Desk before your final creation is projected on the giant screen.

Naturally, the delicious and vivid signature egg pendants and charms, along with a selection of rings with coloured gemstones from the Devotion collection, will be on sale at the Fabergé Egg Bar. Fabergé is also offering a Consultation Bar for bespoke orders and private commissions. 

In addition, Harrods Rewards card holders will be invited to take part in the Fabergé Egg Hunt. Giant eggs designed by artists for charity will be hidden around the department store and the lucky finders can enter a prize draw to win one of three Fabergé Duchesse diamond pendants worth £16,000.

For most of us, the word Fabergé is synonymous with the lavish Easter eggs crafted with coloured gemstones, which were made for Russia's imperial families in the 19th century. In 1885, Tsar Alexander III commissioned the first Fabergé egg for his wife Empress Maria - and thus the tradition of giving luxury gemstone-encrusted eggs at Easter catapulted the name Fabergé to international fame.

Carl Fabergé was obsessed with coloured gemstones and craftsmanship, and was given complete artistic freedom by the Tsar to create the 50 or so highly coveted Easter eggs that were not only beautiful bejewelled artefacts, but were given at Easter as a symbol of renewal and rebirth.

The Jewellery Editor is for sale

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
