Gold and Enamel Jewelry

Jewelry Creations by Fabergé are made in 18 karat yellow and white gold, platinum and precious gems. Fabergé only uses the highest caliber of diamonds and the most outstanding enamel for these precious creations. In 1872, Peter Carl Faberge took over his father's jewelry workshop, which had been established in St. Petersburg in 1842. His technical mastery as a goldsmith put him on a par with the world's most renowned jewelers. He drew his inspiration from the art of earlier generations, which he found in the well-stocked treasury of the Hermitage.
