Faberge Jeweler House to Resume Production of Easter Eggs after 93 years of Break
Faberge Eggs

The Faberge Jeweler House, which ceased to exist after the October Revolution of 1917, is revived and renews production of the famous Easter eggs.

      Faberge House was based in St. Petersburg in 1848. The jewelers who owned it produced a wide range of ornaments; however, the precious Easter eggs created by request of tsars Alexander III and
Nicholas II became the most famous items.

After the revolution Faberge’s heirs repeatedly sold the brand, which eventually ceased to be associated with jewelry and would have ended up as the name of some cheap perfume, but for the South African businessman Brian Gilbertson, who bought the brand for $ 38 million in 2007.

      During the first two years the brand produced jewelry, but now it has been decided to revive production of the legendary Faberge Easter Eggs.
