Fabergé is set to launch a Yorkshire Rose egg pendant at Easter, designed exclusively by Yorkshire jewellery designer Kay Bradley who runs the independent boutique jewellery business Bradley’s Jewellers in York.
The piece features a hand-enamelled Yorkshire Rose with a yellow sapphire centre in homage to the region’s heritage.
Bradley has designed the 18k gold luxury pendant in three colour variations – rose gold, white gold and yellow gold – and each has a diamond-set bail, a yellow sapphire on the clasp and a Yorkshire Rose hidden inside.
The solid gold Fabergé ‘Essence Egg Pendant’ is reportedly inspired by Bradley’s ties to the city of York, and the range will be unveiled at a celebratory gala at Castle Howard in April.
The Fabergé partnership will see the luxury brand sold at Bradley’s Jewellers, with a range of egg pendants and charms, as well as Fabergé’s signature ‘Colours of Love’ collection, featuring rings and earrings made with ethically-sourced coloured gemstones.
Bradley said: “I was captivated by their whimsical charm and intrigued by the treasures hidden within. Even as a child I knew that Fabergé eggs were breathtaking pieces of art. The Yorkshire Rose is such a powerful emblem to the region and its people.
“I’m proud of my Yorkshire roots. I recently created my own Yorkshire Rose jewellery range of rings, earrings, neckwear and wristwear, so it felt right to incorporate this theme in my Fabergé egg.”
