The images you'll see as you scroll down to the current text are all part of the story telling in my novel, Realms of Gold:Ritual to Romance.

Fabergé Imperial Easter Eggs

The House of Fabergé made thousands of jeweled eggs  from 1885 through 1917. The majority of these were miniature ones that were popular gifts at Eastertide. The most famous eggs  were the larger Imperial Easter Eggs made for Alexander III and Nicholas II of Russia.

Fabergé was given complete creative freedom in creating the eggs.  The only stipulations were that each egg must be unique and must contain a surprise. The eggs were made with precious metals or hard stones decorated with combinations of enamel and gem stones. The term “Fabergé egg” has become a symbol of luxury and the eggs are regarded as masterpieces of the jeweler's art. Of the 50 made, 42 have survived.
