Faberge's first collection of couture eggs since the Russian Revolution in 1917 has been launched. The Les Fameux de Faberge and Les Frissons de Faberge collections of fine egg pendants feature lightweight titanium bases encrusted with diamonds and precious gems. The highlight of the collection is the Diaghilev Egg, which is smothered with diamonds and rubies. It costs US$600,000. These pendants pay homage to the legendary Imperial Eggs created by Peter Carl Faberge for Russia's imperial family, the Ramanov's. These new collections mark the return of the House of Faberge.
