14 April 2014

I met with the key players behind A Fabergé Easter at Harrods, including a member of the original Faberge family, to find out more about an event that brings together tradition and innovation under one roof.

If you're in London this Easter don't miss the opportunity to visit Harrods for the most spectacular egg hunt the capital has ever seen, full of rare and precious  Fabergé eggs.

With 'A   Fabergé Easter at Harrods', the iconic jewellery house has taken over the Brompton Road store until April 21 to put on a display celebrating both Easter and the art of gifting.

Harrods' 23 windows have been transformed to retell the story of the legendary Peter Carl Fabergé who created bejeweled Easter eggs for Russian royalty before the Revolution.

Step inside the store to marvel at the stunning pieces on display including the famous Fabergé Apple Blossom egg, made from a solid piece of carved nephrite and one of the largest eggs ever created by the jeweller. On loan from the Lichtenstein National Museum, it is rumoured to be worth £30 million.

Some of the high tech installations in place include a digital mirror created in collaboration with Russian fashion editor Miroslava Duma that allows shoppers to virtually try on Fabergé jewels and share their look on social media. Famous fashion blogger Susie Lao who is behind the Susie Bubble blog was at the opening and confessed that she could really get into Fabergé jewellery as she tried on two Emotion rings. 

And of course there are plenty of opportunities to shop: a sumptuous 'Egg Bar' offers a range of contemporary egg pendants, complete with an on-the-spot engraving service.

But hurry, this unique event that brings together two houses steeped in history is only on until Easter Monday.
