Le Collier Plume D’Or
Fabergé, the legendary jeweller, presents a spectacular one of a kind jewelled masterpiece, created specifically for the Fabergé Big Egg Banquet charity auction on 20th March, 2012. Le Collier Plume d’Or, the Golden Feather necklace, is one of a series of unique couture egg pendants, created by Fabergé to re-imagine and pay homage to the artistry and ingenuity of the legendary, iconic jewelled Imperial Easter Eggs, the most famous of Fabergé works of art, and a vital part of the continuing legend.
The dazzling centrepiece of this dramatic jewel, timelessly contemporary yet evocative of Romanov splendour, is a magnificent emerald cabochon of 127.76 carats, a rare gemstone of exceptional size, colour and quality, around which curl soft golden feathers, finely chased and set with rubies and diamonds. The opulent egg-shaped pendant hangs on a fine necklace set with moonstones, emeralds and rose diamonds.
The design for Le Collier Plume D’Or was inspired by the rich, textured golden feathers of the hen hidden inside the Hen Egg, the very first of the Imperial Easter Eggs, made by Peter Carl Fabergé in 1885 for Tsar Alexander III to give as an Easter present to his wife, Tsarina Maria Fedorovna.
The Hen Egg also provided inspiration to Nicky Haslam, for the huge resin egg filled with swirling feathers, designed for the Fabergé Big Egg Hunt, in aid of Elephant Family and Action for Children.
Le Collier Plume d’Or will be on view at Harrods Fine Jewellery Room from 21st February to 2nd April and at the Fabergé London Boutique, 14A Grafton Street, Mayfair, from 2nd to 8th April.
