Celestial Passion

Theo Fabergé flew to New York City in late 2002, beginning his final tour in the United States.

A special charity event was included at the then famous Firebird Restaurant and it was there that the magical concept for the Celestial Egg Passion was born.

Theo, not only being a designer but also an engineer, needed these skills to complete his vision of this egg, a masterpiece created from a marriage of these talents.

After almost two decades of work, the Celestial has come to fruition, its gilded lid opening like petals of a flower to reveal its surprise.

Rising on an elegant stem, the heavy embellished sterling silver and 18 karat gold overlay shell is made with four sections.

When a hidden button is pressed, the petals drop downward unveiling a second egg of brilliant deep blue enamel with gold stars echoing the constellations in the night sky.

Of course, Theo loved to continue the traditions of his grandfather Carl and the Russian Imperial Easter Eggs and he doesn’t disappoint with the Celestial.
