Today at Easter, as already hundreds of years ago, Easter eggs are painted and given away. It is a popular Christian custom. Also in Russian tsar times giving away Easter eggs was a tradition.
For Alexander III, the tsar of that time, they were clearly too plain so he assigned the jeweller Carl Peter Fabergé to fabricate several exclusive gems. These world-famous decorative eggs were and are still special. Once again with the use of the enameling technique these beautiful Cloisonné egg coins were created in the Fabergé eggs style.
They are not only an ideal gift for Easter. Why not also feel like a tsar and give away these extraordinary beautiful Cloisonné eggs – a coin which will please anybody.
