The entire “Anastasia” collection is handmade in 925 gold or rhodium plated sterling silver. The fired enamels with their smooth or honeycomb finish are encrusted with natural zircons. The pendants blend perfectly the past and the present, the prestige of the cherished Fabergé tradition and the glamour of new trends. The sophisticated egg shaped pendants offer an array of rich and intense enamelled colours ranging from royal blue and red, to deep purple, charcoal black, pearl white, turquoise blue and emerald green. The surface of each jewelled splendour is laced by golden and silver threads which trace geometric, weaving and arabesque patterns enriched by single or starbursts of zircons.
Today the jewelled eggs have become precious artistic details and unique works of art which can be playfully combined so as to create a stylish and exquisite look suitable for every occasion. The collection is dedicated to the Gran-Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna, youngest of the three daughters of the last sovereigns of Imperial Russia Nicholas II and Alexandra. Anastasia, beloved protagonist of many films and books, has a name of Greek origin, meaning “the resurrection of” yet she was often referred to as the “breaker of chains”, given that in honour of her birth her father pardoned and freed all the students who had taken part in the Riots of St Petersburg. This description perfectly reflects her vivacious and energetic nature as a child the same vibrant energy that the Fabergé jewellers are committed to recreate in the pendants.
