Jeweller Kay Bradley has unveiled the Fabergé Yorkshire Rose Egg Surprise Locket, designed in collaboration with the iconic jewellery house, at a showcase event to launch Fabergé’s arrival at her York store.
York hosted a gala at Castle Howard to reveal the Fabergé 18k gold Yorkshire Rose egg pendant and celebrate Fabergé’s arrival in York, with Bradley’s store on Low Petergate the exclusive stockist in the city.
Bradley also announced plans to expand the Fabergé Yorkshire Rose collection to include drop earrings, a matching pendant, a bangle and matching ring.
She also said she hopes to commission an exclusive, one-of-a-kind, Fabergé Yorkshire Rose Imperial Egg Objet in the future, which will be handcrafted by Fabergé workmasters.
She said: “There are few words as evocative as Fabergé – it is a word synonymous with absolute luxury and love, and epitomises the finest of design and craftsmanship. It’s also wonderful that the Fabergé family is still involved in the business, including Sarah Fabergé, great-granddaughter of Peter Carl Fabergé.
“It is these virtues that unite the house of Fabergé and my own jewellery business, and I am absolutely delighted to introduce my own unique collaboration. It is no exaggeration to say that this is the pinnacle of my career.”
Sarah Fabergé, head of Fabergé Heritage Council and director of special projects, added: “A magical evening at Castle Howard, ‘a place like no other’, was the stunning setting for the launch of the Fabergé Yorkshire Rose Egg Surprise Lockets in collaboration with Bradley’s Jewellers, York.”
