Musical Eggs
Buying Guide

When Easter is just around the corner it’s time to decorate eggs in bright colours and usher in spring. The egg has been a symbol of fertility, renewal, and change for thousands of years. Its shape is prized aesthetically, and as a result, it has appeared in art and sculpture for ages. The most famous artisanal egg is the Fabergé Egg from Russia. Peter Carl Fabergé and his company made sixty-five eggs from 1885 to the Russian Revolution of 1917.

The most luxurious eggs he created were the fifty Imperial eggs for Czars Alexander III and Nicholas II, of which only forty-seven survive. The Czars commissioned the eggs as gifts for their wives and mothers. In fact, it was Czar Alexander III that commissioned the first Fabergé Egg for his wife, the Empress Maria Fedorovna. He wanted to give his beloved an Easter egg to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their engagement. This first egg, the Hen Egg, is crafted of opaque white enamel (the “shell”) and opens to expose a yellow-gold “yolk.” The yolk opens, too, to reveal a hen – which in turn opened to uncover a diamond replica of the imperial crown, complete with a dangling ruby pendant. While the egg still exists, owned by a Russian businessman, the crown and ruby have been lost.

Most of the Fabergé eggs were trinket boxes that held opulent jewels – a gift within a gift. ChasingTreasure offers ten different styles of egg-shaped trinket boxes in the style of the luxurious Fabergé Egg by Jere. Exquisitely hand-crafted from fine pewter, most are coated with 24K gold. After being hand-enameled, skilled artisans inlay the eggs with genuine Austrian crystals. As an added treat, most of these lovely jewelry boxes also play music when you open them to reveal their surprise contents. This collection is issued in limited editions, almost making them as rare as the Fabergé eggs themselves. These highly collectable keepsake trinket boxes from ChasingTreasure are the perfect gift for Mother’s Day or Easter this spring. Let’s take a look at the different options offered.
