Alexandra Collection by Tatiana Fabergé
The Alexandra Collection, with its three different sublime jeweled designs, is a showcase of detailed handmade precision. The burnished silver and rose gold threads, encrusted with sparkling cubic zircons, enshroud with swirling and geometric designs the soft brightness of the white agate and the tantalizing depth of the black onyx stone centre pieces. The refined style of the jeweled pendants, earing and rings of the collection adorn the beauty of any woman adding a true touch of elegance and offer a unique pleasure which stems from wearing works of art of timeless artistic value and outstanding past reputation. The jeweled items recall the Russian goldsmith tradition and the shape of the famous Fabergé eggs.

Rose Gold Plated
The elegance and beauty of Rose Gold creates a timeless wareable work of art. While rose gold can give jewelry a retro feel, the metal also works well for both classic and modern designs.
This collection is the ideal gift for the woman who loves a more traditional look but still wants to stay up to date with the current fashion trends.
A Chapter in History
The baroque style recalls in particular the fabulous “Coronation Egg” donated in 1897 by the last Tsar of Russia Nicholas II Romanov to his beloved wife Alexandra to commemorate their coronation that took place the previous year when they were crowned Tsar and Tsarina of Russia. It was one of the most magnificent pageants in Russian history. Over 7,000 guests from across the globe, including most of Europe’s royalty, attended. The celebrations lasted for two weeks.
The Coronation Egg was made from gold with translucent lime yellow enamel on a guilloché field of starbursts. It is trellised with bands of greenish gold laurel leaves mounted at each intersection by a gold Imperial double-headed eagle enamelled opaque black, and set with a rose diamond on its chest. At the top of the Egg is the crowned monogram of Tsarina Alexandra emblazoned in rose-cut diamonds and rubies. The date 1897 the bottom of the Egg. The colour scheme of the Egg was drawn from the cloth-of-gold Coronation Robe worn by the Empress.
Like all the other exquisitely handcrafted Imperial Eggs it had a tiny surprise inside: a precise miniature reproduction of the 18th Century coach that carried Alexandra to her coronation. The carriage is made of gold, platinum, strawberry red enamel, diamonds, rubies and rock crystal. It took approximately 15 months to handcraft.
The richness of the “Coronation Egg”, like all the present day Maison Tatiana Fabergé jewellery collections, does not only reside in the materials used but also in the artistic quality of the greatest goldsmith craftsmanship ever to exist in Russia, Fabergé.
