If you were ever had any doubts that the Imperial Russians had wildly extravagant tastes, a new exhibition at the Houston Museum of Natural Science will put them to rest. Fabergé: A Brilliant Vision runs until the end of the year and showcases more than 350 objets d'art from the esteemed McFerrin Collection. On extended loan to the museum, it is one of the largest collections of Fabergé in the world.

Tatiana Fabergé, the great-granddaughter of Peter Carl Fabergé, describes the McFerrin Collection as "one of those rare gems",  and the exhibition is a rare chance to see some spectacular pieces dating from the late 19th and early 20th century. These include two Fabergé eggs that have been recently added to the collection, the Diamond Trellis Egg and one of the celebrated Kelch eggs. Also on display are the famed Nobel Ice Egg and the Empress Josephine diamond tiara.

Fabergé: A Brilliant Vision runs until 31 December 2013 at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, USA.

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.
