THINGS NO ONE WILL EVER GUESS ARE FABERGÉ


Today would have been the 166th Birthday of Peter Carl Fabergé , a legendary jeweller of the Russian Emperors, most famously known for his Fabergé Eggs .

Following our very natural desire to out-jump every Google Doodle ,  here is our reverent tribute to the more recent creations of this jewellery House, fit for the Green Pebbles Girls both through their originality, bespoke quality and because of a modernist twist which will leave everyone guessing, astonished that they also come from the legendary  House of Fabergé  :

CONSTRUCTIVIST – a  Fabergé modernist capsule collection:

Constructivism was a powerful modernist Russian art movement dominating the early 20th century – the era of Peter Carl Fabergé .  In tune with the Bauhaus and Cubism , strongly ideological and daring in style, Constructivism introduced a totally new aesthetic: industrial, architectural, inspired by the machine, full of abstract images in bold colours arranged in pure geometric forms.



Left: DISSONANCE Earrings, part of Les Fauves de Fabergé , designed in the dynamic, graphic style. Their modernism resonates with the Green Pebbles Girls' intuitive sense of avant-garde design directions. It's an intricate melody of Stravinsky , frozen into a dramatic architectural drop of two  tourmalines of dusky pink and forest green, totalling 80.23 carats.

Right: a spectacular KALEIDOSCOPE Ring which juxtaposes deep, pensive pool of the central blue-green chrysoberyl of 17.86 carats with bold, geometric planes, sketched in diamonds and paved in blue sapphires, violet spinels, aquamarines, demantoid and tsavorite garnets and sphenes, their delicate hues contrasting with the powerful lines of the ring's Constructivist design.

ACCOUTREMENT – the Fabergé Cufflink





LeftFELIX Cufflinks  (after  Prince Felix Yusupov  of Russia) inspired by the elegant cigarette-cases manufactured by  Fabergé.

Right:  sumptuous  Grigori Cufflinks  , named for  Grigori Potemkin  , the brilliant and charming favourite of the Russian Empress Catherine the Great  . Their shape is reminiscent of both the legendary   Fabergé Eggs  and a precious shell from a far-away dream island.
