'A Fabergé Easter at Harrods' launches in London
Time to shine
The highly anticipated concept of 'A Fabergé Easter at Harrods' officially launched this week in London, with famous creative talent Simon Costin revealing some really quite amazing window showcases at the Brompton Road store, all reflecting the rich heritage of the Russian jewellery house.

But the fun doesn't stop there. Once inside the historic Harrods walls, visitors can view priceless antique jewellery and Fabergé eggs – including The Apple Blossom Egg (below) – which was designed in 1901, alongside other treasures from the house. It's the first time such pieces will be exhibited in the UK and in a non-museum environment. The adjoining salon is also home to a special collection of Fabergé jewellery designed by the late Parisian jeweller Frédéric Zaavy – the first time that the collection has been showcased in its entirety.
Another exciting aspect to the proceedings comes in the shame of the Fabergé Cinescope, an interactive digital space presented by Buro 24/7 Founder, Miroslava Duma. The space uses iPad like technology in place of a mirror, enabling users to see their reflection wearing the jewellery pieces on show.
And for those who simply must own an egg for themselves, Harrods customers will also be able to visit the Fabergé Egg Bar, where they can take advantage of an exclusive bespoke engraving service to personalise Egg pendants. To celebrate the collaboration, a limited-edition spiral tassel pendant has also been created, which will only be available to buy in the store.
