Maria Doulton: Spring is in the air, and there's something very special at Harrods, because if you walk down the Brompton Road you will see that all the shop windows have been taken over by the jeweller, Fabergé. Now, these windows tell the story of the history of this famed jeweller, then you go inside and you can bring the whole experience alive. Because working with Miroslava Duma, there is a digital mirror in which you can photograph yourself wearing one of these amazing pieces of jewellery, and then share it with all your friends around the world.
There's something really special, which I don't think you should miss, and that is a 1901 Apple Blossom Easter Egg that was created by Carl Fabergé, and is on display for the very first time outside of a museum environment. Alongside it are the jewels created by Frédéric Zaavy for the relaunch of Fabergé in 2009. Or you can go along to the Egg Bar and choose a beautiful enamelled or bejewelled pendant, engraved with whatever message you choose.
Katharina Flohr: We're showing our revival, the renaissance of Fabergé, and bringing back the jewels that we feel embody the artistry and the spirit and the ethos of Peter Carl Fabergé.
Maria Doulton: If you love jewellery, if you love Fabergé, and if you love Harrods, this really is an amazing experience, because I have never seen all of this Fabergé history and jewellery come together in such a beautiful way.
