Diamond & Jewellery Chat at the House of Monroe Yorke
As we celebrate Easter this year, it’s time to throwback to Russian royalty for the ultimate Easter inspiration in gold, diamonds and gems. Easter is traditionally the time for chocolate easter eggs and no one has made eggs any more beautiful than the legenedary Russian jeweller, Peter Carl Fabergé. Fabergé created only 50 exquisitely decorated eggs that the Russian Royal family gave as extravagant Easter gifts to their friends and family. The bejewelled & intricate eggs that Fabergé created for the Russian royalty are called the ‘Imperial’ eggs. Fabergé also made eggs for other wealthy clients but these do not have the coveted “Imperial” title.
