London: Breakfast with Fabergé
Hosted by Hanne Faurby
A lucky few Gem X’ers in London were treated at the V&A Museum for a private tour of the Fabergé exhibition. We were spoiled with tales of royal lovers, champion racehorses, secret messages and diamond studded dinner parties. We explored the arc of success Fabergé found in London and were touched by the stories of the end of this era with The Great War and the ensuing Russian Revolution. Our tour ended with the astonishing collection of 15 Imperial Easter Eggs, leaving us marveling on how these seemingly impossible feats of gem setting could have been created.
