This exquisite brooch was made by Fabergé. Fabergé was established in St Petersburg in 1842, and by the late nineteenth century, was Russia’s largest and best-known jewellery house. The house has become known for their royal commissions and their close ties to the family of Tsar Nicholas II. This brooch is in an open pointed marquise shape modelled from yellow gold. On one of the inner edges of the brooch is a row of glittering rubies, and on the other, a row of sparkling diamonds. On the pointed ends of the brooch are a further ruby and diamond. This wonderful piece is a perfect example of Fabergé design and craftsmanship.
