Peter Carl Faberge is the world's most famous jeweler who created eternally original pieces of art. The series of Easter eggs created by Faberge for the Russian Imperial family, from 1885 through to 1916, is regarded as the greatest and most enduring achievement. The Faberge Easter eggs are certainly the most celebrated and inspiring of all his works of art, inextricably bound to the Faberge name and legend. They are also considered as the last great commissioned series of objects of art.
This sparkling egg is adorned with clear crystals and high-polished enamel with golden trim. It opens on a hinge and has a magnetic closure to keep the box securely shut. The piece also comes in a beautiful gift box.

The original Tsarevich Egg is one in a series of 52 jeweled eggs made under the supervision of Faberge. It was created in 1912 for Empress as a tribute by Faberge to her son the Tsarevich Alexei. The egg currently resides in the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
The original egg is about five and three-quarters inches tall on its stand, with a diameter of four inches. The outer shell is blue lapis lazuli, with architectural, gold cagework in a design of leafy scrolls. The gold motifs cover each joint, making the egg look as if it was carved from a single block of lapis. The goldwork includes two Imperial double-headed eagles, as well as cupids, canopies, floral scrolls, flower baskets, and garlands. Two large diamonds, one at the top and one at the bottom, are encrusted into the egg's surface, showing the initials of Tsarina Alexandra Fyodorovna, the year 1912 and the Imperial crown.
