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 translucent green egg pendant looks a hundred times more beautiful in person. It is fashioned in a brushed silver detailed design with clear crystals. An elongated pendant, it measures about 1" in length and features a brushed silver cap with a silver ball at the bottom. A very unusual combination that is sure to please the woman who favors silver jewelry. And a great change of pace for those who lean towards the gold look in accessories. Magical!
