A very different Easter Egg!

Thursday, March 01, 2012

Fabergé have specially created this amazing Diamond Jubilee egg as a commemorative prize for the Fabergé Big Egg Hunt event in London.  In one of the biggest Easter Egg Hunts in the world the public are invited to find 200 special Easter eggs created for the occasion.  Each Egg has a code and the finder is required to report via SMS to stand a chance of winning the grand prize. All the 200 eggs will be auctioned at the end of the hunt

The egg, which is also a celebration of The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, is made from 500 grams of rose gold and features 60 gemstones – one for each year of the Queen’s reign.   Diamonds, emeralds, rubies and sapphires are set in the pleats of the quilted rose gold surface.  This very special egg is valued at £100,000.

The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt began on February 21 and will close in early April. Proceeds from the hunt are in favour of supporting charities - Action For Children and The Elephant Family.
