In celebration of ‘A Love in Colour’ this Valentine’s Day, Fabergé is delighted to introduce a romantic new addition to its Heritage collection. The Fabergé Heritage Limited Edition Yellow Gold Locket with Teal Enamel & Carved Ruby Rose Surprise showcases complex traditional techniques, such as the delicate art of guilloché enamelling and hand-engraving.
Limited to just ten numbered pieces, this new pendant is the perfect exclusive gift with which to spoil a loved one this season. Each 18k yellow gold egg pendant has been hand-painted with teal enamel, and adorned with white diamonds. The egg opens to reveal a radiant red rose surprise inside – intricately hand-carved from a treated Gemfields Mozambican ruby – and also features a single white diamond at its centre. The beautiful rose, a delicate symbol of love, has been set in 18k yellow gold, with dark green hand-painted enamel leaves at its base.
Fabergé takes inspiration from its storied past to forge its future, and Peter Carl Fabergé was renowned for featuring many different botanicals, from the iconic Rose Trellis Imperial Egg of 1907, which featured a lattice of rose-cut diamonds and roses in pink enamel, to the infamous flower studies set in rock crystal jars. Florals have continued to inspire Fabergé’s modern creations, from the Fabergé Essence Rose Gold Forget Me Not Surprise Locket, to the Summer in Provence Watch, and now the new Ruby Rose Surprise.
Red roses have been associated with love and passion for thousands of years, an emblem of love which still exists today. Ruby was the perfect choice for the delicate, hand-carved ruby rose surprises, as the gemstone is associated with passion, prosperity, and protection – three qualities which lend themselves perfectly to the celebration of Valentine’s Day. The rubies featured in these limited-edition lockets were sourced from Gemfields’ Montepuez ruby mine in Mozambique. Gemfields is a world-leading supplier of responsibly sourced coloured gemstones. Gemfields is committed to furthering transparency, legitimacy and integrity in the coloured gemstone business and believes that coloured gemstones should create a positive impact for the countries and communities from which they originate.
The Fabergé Heritage Limited Edition Yellow Gold Locket with Teal Enamel & Carved Ruby Rose Surprise (£9,500/$12,500) is available to purchase at selected Fabergé boutiques and on Faberge.com.
