Fabergé celebrates the new year in spectacular fashion with an array of diamonds, coloured gemstones and exquisite timepieces
While mention of the famed house of Fabergé often evokes images of jewel-encrusted Easter eggs reserved for museums and private collections, the House’s timepieces and high jewellery creations are equally sought after by those in-the-know. Take, for instance, the Colours of Love collection, which has released numerous additions throughout the years, all combining the traditional craftsmanship of the House’s creative mind, Peter Carl Fabergé, with modern techniques and contemporary style. It features a mix of emeralds, rubies and multicoloured sapphires to celebrate ‘a life in colour’.
Elsewhere, the extraordinary Frédéric Zaavy Composition White Gold Diamond & Red Enamel Necklace features overlapping diamond circles outlined in red enamel. The piece – inspired by abstract works by Russian artist Alexander Rodchenko – experiments with geometry, the circles’ curves bringing playful movement to a structured creation.
In addition to high jewellery, Fabergé is renowned for its timepieces. Whether personal tastes favour classic faces or those doused in diamonds, its watches are the epitome of an heirloom. Case in point: The Compliquée Winter Timepiece. The stunning creation pays homage to the 1913 Winter Egg and boasts a Mother-of-Pearl dial set with diamonds, diamond-set bezel, a sky blue lacquer fan exclusively developed for the House, a 38mm platinum case and alligator strap.
Fabergé has been crafting awe-inspiring works of art since Peter Carl took the helm in 1882 and, if its latest collections are any indication, there are many more to come. Explore the collections
