Independent jewellers and designers of bespoke engagement rings will be excited to hear that the Easter bunny has arrived early this year with a basket full of treasures. The location of this particularly special Easter egg hunt is none other than the luxury magnate Harrods of London.

Harrods will be host to an exquisite exhibition displaying a collection of stunning Fabergé Eggs with as much flair and extravagance that could only be expected of the luxury department store.

The Fabergé salon and exhibition space, that has been especially designed for and set up in Harrods, will feature many magnificent samples of these dazzling little eggs, but the main attraction will be a rare masterpiece named the Apple Blossom Egg. This particular egg was designed in 1901 and is a beautiful creation of gold, diamonds and nephrite. This is the first time this exceptional masterpiece, along with many other historic Fabergé treasures, has been exhibited in the UK.

Customers, while perusing the gorgeous displays of fine jewellery and engagement rings, should certainly make a bee-line for the Fabergé Egg Bar. There they will have the unique opportunity to explore the egg pendants, and can even take advantage of the bespoke in-store engraving service allowing them to personalise these precious eggs.

Fabergé: a House of Inspiration and History

Fabergé Eggs are famed for their intrinsic beauty, fine detail and exquisite craftsmanship. Their signature style and elite reputation has inspired many jewellery makers and engagement ring designers. The popularity of bespoke items, such as the engagement rings featured in the F&L Designer Guides, is epitomised by the distinct singularity and unique features of each and every egg created by Fabergé.

The famous windows and façades of Harrods lining Brompton Road will be dressed in the luxury jewellery house’s flags and tell of the Fabergé story. The displays will showcase the world of Fabergé, from its collection of famed Imperial Easter Eggs and regal connections all the way to the jewellery house’s contemporary jewellery creations of today.

Helen David, Harrods’s fashion director, commented that “we are proud to announce this creative partnership with Fabergé, which brings to life the brand’s rich heritage and artistic vision. At Harrods we offer our clients unparalleled retail experiences and this concept will take them on a fascinating journey of discovery through the history of this iconic jewellery house.”

A Fabergé Easter at Harrods continues until April 21, 2014.
