Egg Shaped Jewellery for Easter
There are some truly egg-xtraordinary jewellery pieces out there, completely cracking egg-samples of jewellery that has to be seen to be believed. See where we’re going here? It’s Easter once again, and that means we’re getting a bit obsessed with anything egg related, including our bad puns! But enough of the yolks, in seriousness, here are some splendid egg-inspired jewellery pieces we love, ready for Easter.
The Fabergé egg
We couldn’t start this list with anything else. The Fabergé egg is perhaps the most iconic egg-shaped jewellery around. The Heritage Collection draws inspiration from Fabergé’s original jewelled masterpieces, capturing their refinement, cultural richness and technical perfection.
This Palais Tsarskoye Selo Rose Heart Locket features pink guilloché enamel and round white diamonds, set in 18 carat rose gold. Fabergé has concealed a heart decorated with red-pink enamel inside the locket. This pendant will set you back a cool £7,560, and we think it’s well worth it.
Enamel and Yellow Gold Egg Pendant
This egg shaped necklace is perfect for Easter, available here from yours truly. This whimsical design is sure to spark interest from curious onlookers, and could also be worn as charm on a bracelet.
Eggs have been given traditionally at Easter for a long time. Originally eating eggs was not allowed by church leaders during the week leading up to Easter (known as Holy Week), so any eggs laid that week were saved and decorated to make them Holy Week eggs. They then were given to children as gifts, and therefore the tradition of Easter eggs started! Victorians adapted the tradition with satin-covered cardboard eggs filled with Easter gifts, whilst in the 19th century French and German chocolatiers started creating eggs from chocolate.
Oval Cut Sapphire & Diamond Pendant
Although not strictly egg-shaped, this oval cut sapphire and diamond necklace from our vault is close enough, and beautiful enough to be featured on this list. This stunning pendant features a deep blue 1.75 carat oval shaped sapphire which is suspended from a sparkling diamond set bail composed of Round brilliant cut diamonds with a total diamond weight of 0.18ct. This striking pendant has been hand made in 18ct white gold and is suspended from a classic 16 trace chain. You can see more here.
