IT'S SPRING IN BOSTON WITH THE LAUNCH 
OF FABERGÉ'S LATEST EGG



Fabergé, the world’s most iconic artist jeweler, brings its high and fine jewelry including the Imperial and much-loved Heritage collections to Dorfman, Boston from October 2015.

Shoppers were stunned and surprised a week ago, when an 
armored car dropped off a #NEW Fabergé egg Wednesday morning.  The first in 99 years, the Spring Egg is one of a collection of four new Imperial-class Eggs called the Four Seasons, the collection can be had for a mere $2.96 million.

Spring is made up of 138.36 karats of emeralds, 36 princess cut Paraiba tourmalines, and 5,638 round white diamonds, set in 18 karat rose and white gold.



According to an in depth article by Logan Sachon at JCK:  “Part of the mission of the company is to create Fabergé again as it was in the early 1900s, having that level of prestige,” Jon Omer,U.S. vice president in charge of wholesale for Fabergé tells JCK.“When Gemfields bought the brand, we say our project was to rescue it from a black hole, to re-create everything: image, design, marketing. And one of the last parts has been to begin creating the Imperial-class Eggs again.”
Fabergé was reintroduced as a prestige luxury brand, and the brand was realigned with the Fabergé family when Pallinghurst sold the majority of its stake to Gemfields in 2012.  It is a point of particular pride that members of the Fabergé family have endorsed the effort.
“Tatiana Fabergé and Sarah Fabergé, great granddaughters of Peter Carl Fabergé, are part of our board, they look at everything we are making and put their blessing on it, and when you purchase a piece from Fabergé, you receive a certificate of authenticity from the two sisters,” says Omer.

The first Imperial-class Egg under the new Fabergé regime was created in collaboration with, and purchased by, the pearl collector Hussain Al-Fardan and presented at Baselworld in February 2015. The Fabergé Pearl Egg featured 139 white pearls, 3,305 diamonds, carved rock crystal, and mother-of-pearl set on white and yellow gold. The “surprise” inside the egg, a hallmark of the original Fabergé Imperial Eggs, was a 12.17 ct. gray pearl. (In the Four Seasons collection, the buyers are invited to choose the surprise they want inside each egg, Omer says.)
“Once these eggs are sold, we will start on a new egg,” he says. “We will do what Carl did and produce a new egg each year.”

Each egg takes 25 artisans approximately one year to produce."

With a history bridging three centuries and the richest of operatic narratives, intricately woven with romance, intrigue, opulence and the fall of an empire, Fabergé perfectly understands the importance of history, heritage, legend and legacy. Each Fabergé object today, an enduring heirloom, marks a moment in time that will last for generations to come.


Sean Gilbertson, Fabergé’s CEO, said:
“We are delighted to see Fabergé landing in Massachusetts’ capital. Boston played such an important part in the nation’s founding and with revolutions in both our histories we have something in common. We are excited to begin this new chapter in the USA. For nearly four decades, the Dorfman family has presided the premises at 24 Newbury Street. With Jonathan and Douglas, still overseeing the family’s salon, much like the original Fabergé brothers did, we are sure their local and international clientele will welcome Fabergé’s unique fusion of exceptional workmanship and design with beautiful gemstones.”
