The Rococo Collection by Fabergé

By Paul Joseph

World-renowned jewellery house Fabergé has created a new collection billed as offering a modern take on the 18th-century Rococo artistic movement.

Fabergé’s Rococo Collection features an array of gems including cocktail rings, bracelets, necklaces and drop earrings, all inspired by the gold scrolls that features on the original Rocaille Egg created in 1902 which boasts distinctive Rococo-style hallmarks.

Notable features of the collection include swirls interspersed in a kaleidoscope of colours, through mosaic pavé setting combined with significant centre stones. The jewels also contain large dusky pink and purple spinels, vivid emeralds, luminous amethysts and radiant aquamarines.

The jewels, which are also available in a feminine rose gold version, include openwork rings, wide cuffs and pendants, pavé-set with vibrant multi-coloured gems or white diamonds.

Founded in in St. Petersburg, Russia in 1842, Faberge rose to prominence before the First World War when it created jewelled eggs for members of Russia’s aristocracy. Post-war, after the Russian monarchy was toppled, it maintained its reputation and grew into a major global luxury brand.
