Faberge Egg -the story of ambition and incalculable riches of the new rulers of Russia and the oligarchs.
The jeweller and entrepreneur Carl Faberge, fashioned his eponymous eggs from gems and precious metals in his St Petersburg workshop. The first one was presented by Tsar Alexander III to his wife, the Empress Maria Fedorovna at Easter in 1885. Then it became an annual tradition which his son Nicholas II followed with eggs for his mother and wife each Easter Sunday.
