A wonderful Fabergé egg pendant made by workmaster Henrik Wigström in St. Peterburg. This enchanting pendant features bright red guilloché enamel details, a French technique of enamelling for which Fabergé’s workshop in St. Peterburg was renowned. It creates the effect of a lustrous watered silk, achieved by engraving repetitive pattern on a metal base, which seems to be a cupule of an acorn in this gorgeous example. It is further decorated with opaque white enamel, delicate gold oak tree leaf engravings and a row of twinkling rose-cut diamonds. The lower half is carved from pale blue chalcedony that appears to glow gently below the embellished top. Regal and alluring, this beautiful pendant exemplifies Fabergé’s quest for perfection and skilful craftmanship and would look graceful worn on a simple gold chain necklace.
