The Egg “First Hen Egg” of 1885, was the first of 50 Easter eggs created by the Russian jeweler Peter Carl Fabergé for the czars of Russia back in the period from 1885 to 1917. Its production started with an order placed by Czar Alexander III as a gift to his wife, Maria Feodorovna, representing an ephemeris of their twentieth wedding anniversary, along with the Easter celebration.
The Empress Maria was so impressed with this that the Czar Alexander III ended appointing Fabergé as the “court supplier” and kept on ordering one egg every year from then, under the compromise that it should always be unique on one hand, and containing a surprise on the other, thus becoming the tradition that lasted for 30 years.
With its new piece “THE FIRST EGG”, Alma de Luce intends to embody a tribute to this outstanding and memorable tradition. The eggs produced by Peter Carl Fabergé became symbols of luxury, and are nowadays considered masterpieces in the art of jewelry.
