In 1827, an ambitious 24-year-old Russian took over his father’s jewellery business, determined to make it the talk of imperial St Petersburg.

Thirteen years later, having gained a reputation for his craftsmanship and creativity, Peter Carl Fabergé received the ultimate seal of approval: a commission from Tsar Alexander III for a bejewelled Easter egg – a gift for his young bride, Maria Feodorovna.

The white enamel “hen” egg, containing a gold yolk, gold hen, tiny replica of the imperial crown and ruby pendant, was a hit, and Fabergé went on to create a new egg for the Tsar every Easter, as well as countless other pieces.

Each egg took around a year to complete, contained a “surprise” and was designed in secret, with not even the Tsar privy to its design until it was hand-delivered by Fabergé.
