Ovo Art

It is a Russian tradition to gift beautiful decorated eggs. They can be beautifully displayed. Eggs are the foremost symbol of life and the promise of the future. Peter Carl Faberge, the world renowned Russian court jeweler and purveyor of elegance to the Tsar, took this tradition to the highest of levels. Some would say that he achieved perfection with his acclaimed designs and production values. Genuine Faberge eggs are as rare as the proverbial hen's tooth. We have a variety of miniature jeweled enamel egg boxes and pendants reminiscent of classic Faberge designs. We have some unique folk art as well as "ovo art" and gemstone eggs with the Russian Double Headed Eagle, crest of the Tsars.
