The House of Fabergé has launched a new collection of its signature eggs inspired by the hit TV series Game of Thrones.
It is co-designed by Fabergé designer, Liisa Tallgren, and Michele Clapton, the Emmy- and BAFTA-winning costume designer from HBO’s Game of Thrones.
The egg opens to reveal a surprise in the form of a crown sat atop a glistening crystal base.
Michele Clapton said: “From the very beginning, the evolution of this egg objet has been truly poetic. The design references Daenerys Targaryen’s incredible journey and the importance of colour within her costumes, her passion for her dragons, and the way she portrayed messages via her jewellery throughout her journey on the show.
“References from the textures of the dragons and their iconic eggs were used to inform the surfaces of this egg objet.”
Clapton added: “I knew instantly what the secret gift should be, there was never a doubt; it had to be the crown that Daenerys believed throughout her life was her destiny.
“With the crown, I referenced her dragons, their wings sweeping around protecting the beautiful Gemfields ruby that represents Daenerys, her house colour, and her fierce quest to rule.”
Josina von dem Bussche-Kessel, global sales & business development director at Fabergé, commented: “Fabergé has an unrivalled ability to commemorate significant milestones with its objets d’art, that tell tales of intrigue and mystique.
“We are delighted to pay tribute to the modern-day legend that is the Game of Thrones series.
“Rarely has a story captured the imagination of so many people around the world, and this one-off piece is a once-in-a-lifetime collector’s item.
“The partnership with Warner Bros. and Michele Clapton showcases Fabergé’s relevance today by encapsulating the ‘Zeitgeist’ of storytelling and artistry.”
