In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the Russian jeweller Carl Fabergé (1846-1920) created precious objects for the Czars Alexander III and Nicholas II. The name of this firm became synonymous with elegant craftsmanship in luxury jewellery, and is also associated with the final days of the Russian imperial family, a tragic story that marked the start of the twentieth century.
