This is a beautiful Faberge egg created in sterling silver and then gilded in 24 karat gold. It is then enameled with several layers of multicolored enamel.This technique of enameling is an extremely delicate and highly labor- intensive one involving hand application of translucent colored enamel and then firing it at very high temperatures. Each egg is enameled by hand with up to seven layers of enamel. This lovely gold tone Faberge egg pendant is fashioned in gold tone with a malachite bottom. It has crystals around the cente.... four larger ones and lots of smaller ones surround the egg. About 3/4" in length and width. Lovely!
