Fabergé has crafted a one-off egg objet in collaboration with the Al-Fardan family. The Fabergé Pearl Egg is the first egg created in the Imperial Class since 1917. The egg draws inspiration from the formation of a pearl within an oyster, and the egg’s mother-of-pearl exterior opens to reveal a grey pearl of 12.17 carats, sourced from the Arabian Gulf and exhibiting exceptional purity and a highly unusual shade of grey

The work of 20 highly skilled craftspeople, the objet embodies 139 fine, white pearls with a golden lustre, 3,305 diamonds, carved rock crystal and mother-of-pearl set on white and yellow gold. Each pearl on the Fabergé Pearl Egg was hand-selected by Hussain Ibrahim Al-Fardan from his private collection. A mechanism enables the outer shell to rotate on its base, simultaneously opening in six sections to unveil its treasure.

The Pearl Egg is accompanied by a Fabergé necklace of white pearls, diamonds and mother of pearl featuring a scallop motif, and finished with a 19.44-carat white pearl drop. Valued at $2 million, the Pearl Egg has been made by the House of Fabergé to pay homage to the forthcoming centenary of the last Fabergé Imperial Eggs ever delivered. The Al-Fardan family of Qatar is one of the oldest and most successful traditional pearl merchants in the Gulf.

Hussain Ibrahim Al-Fardan, chairman of the Alfardan Group, said: “I have a passion for natural pearls and it took me many years to build my current collection gathering some of the most extraordinary pearls in the world. Fabergé has a great history in making jewellery for royalty and a truly precious Fabergé Egg is a luxury treasure and the symbol of a long-gone era of opulence. This is why I partnered with Fabergé to combine these two traditional treasures: the Fabergé Egg and natural Arabian Gulf pearls, to create an exceptional piece”.
