The Romanov’s Faberge Eggs
Peter Carl Faberge, the famed Russian jeweler, designed about fifty bejeweled Easter eggs for the Romanov family of Russia between 1855 and 1916. The Easter eggs, which helped to make the Faberge name world famous, were beautiful representations of the wealth of Russia’s ruling family and the great love between Czar Nicolas II and his wife, Czarina Alexandria.
During the Russian Revolution, however, the royal family was executed and the valuable eggs disappeared. Rumors persist that many of the Romanov’s Faberge eggs have landed in private collections scattered all over the globe.
