Vintage locket with diamonds, Igor Carl Fabergé, around 2000
Carl Fabergé, born in St. Petersburg in 1846, became the court jeweller to the Russian tsars with the jewellery he produced, especially the world-famous Fabergé eggs, and supplied the whole of Europe with precious and exceptional luxury jewellery around 1900. The name Fabergé has become synonymous with the lavish splendour of the era around the penultimate turn of the century. His creations, mostly in colourful enamel, quickly became an indispensable status symbol for the rich and beautiful. Even Cartier in Paris copied the designs from St. Petersburg and took a long time to free itself from the shadow of its competitor. The medallion pendant here is in this grand tradition - even if it was created only a few years ago. For, as can be read on the back of the heart, it originates from the Fabergé workshop. However, it was not created in Russia, but in Germany, more precisely in Pforzheim, where the traditional Victor Meyer manufactory produced jewellery under licence from the heirs of the master from Petersburg between 1989 and 2009. The medallion made of high-carat gold, diamonds and green enamel opens to hold two photographs inside. The large loop can be unfolded as well, allowing the pendant to be worn on a pearl necklace. We discovered the heart of gold in Vienna.
