Let’s just leave that whole “chicken or egg” thing to someone else for now. Here at Stauer, a different question has been plaguing us — why do other companies charge so much for pieces inspired by those world-famous Russian Imperial Eggs? It seems that everywhere we look there are enameled eggs being sold for hundreds of dollars. We don’t get it. But it just makes our Empress Royal Egg Necklace seem all the more impressive!
The Czar's jeweler and his assistants created thousands of unique Imperial Eggs for Romanov rulers from the 1880s until 1917. But now, very few of those original eggs remain. They are so rare in fact that even reproductions sell for exorbitant amounts of money. But you can get our version for a fraction of the cost. This decorative, enameled pendant evokes the style of Russia's legendary royal eggs. Round-cut crystals are inset among the elegant, hand-enameled design. Gold-toned details including an ornate heart and scroll-work glitter and gleam among the red enamel that almost seems to glow. And the entire egg hangs comfortably from an impressive golden chain that closes with a lobster clasp.
