Nothing could make me remember more about this trip than this Egg. When I saw it in Vladivostok my heart collapsed with enthusiasm and suddenly I was learning everything about the Fabergé Eggs. Created for the Russian Imperial family from 1885 to 1916 when the company was run by Peter Carl Fabergé, these pieces are inextricably linked to the glory and tragic fate of the last Romanov family. They were the ultimate achievement of the renowned Russian jewelry house and must also be considered the last great commissions of objets d’art.

All the eggs were incredible, but the Trans-Siberian Railway Fabergé egg was the one that marked me the most because, somehow, made me see myself on it: after all, I was aboard the Trans-Siberian train!
It’s without a doubt a piece of art. And the craftsmanship techniques with the astonishing materials used is what makes it luxury.
Even though I wasn’t allowed to buy it I must say I bring it into my heart.
The surprise inside the egg was unique: a mini Trans-Siberian Train made of gold, platinum, diamonds, and rubies! And it was possible to make it run with the gold key! How incredible is that? Let’s not forget that it was made in 1900! I felt like a kid again, wanting to play with that… Such a nostalgic feeling I’ll never forget. Luxury is, sometimes, what you can’t buy, but stays with you for a lifetime
