Faberge style egg ornaments derive from the famous Russian Faberge eggs. Faberge eggs get their name from Gustav Faberge, a Russian jeweler of the 1800s. When his son Peter Carl joined him in business, they began to attract the attention of the czars. It became a tradition of the Russian czars to give the splendid Faberge eggs to their wives or mothers.
The eggs were quite ornate, decorated with jewels and they opened up to reveal a hidden surprise inside. The first Faberge egg contained a yolk which held a golden hen, which held a tiny crown and a tiny ruby egg. It was a gift to Czarina Maria in 1885.
While you might not have an authentic Faberge egg ornament for your tree you may certainly have one of these beautiful approximations.
