RAPAPORT... Fabergé introduced Karenina, a special collection of jewels that were inspired by the heroine of Leo Tolstoy's masterpiece, Anna Karenina. It was only a few years after Anna Karenina was published that Peter Carl Fabergé became the imperial jeweler to the Tsars, creating his most celebrated Fabergé Eggs.
The Karenina fine jewelry collection echoes the exuberance and romance of the era, while celebrating the heroine’s femininity with contemporary style, according to the company. An opal pendant, suspended from a white gold chain is at the heart of the collection, embellished with delicate diamond clusters encircling a magnificent rose-cut diamond. Translucent white opal earrings complement the set, intended to evoke the soft colors of moonlight and the shimmering satin gowns worn at the grand balls. The set of matching pendant necklace and earrings is also available with precious Akoya pearls or with spectacular emeralds instead of opals.
Fabergé's collections also include timepieces and men’s accessories and all are available at the brand's boutiques in London, Geneva and New York, as well as concessions within Lane Crawford in Hong Kong and Harrods in London.
