RAPAPORT... Fabergé  unveiled its "Diamond Jubilee Egg," which was created as a commemorative prize for the Fabergé Big Egg Hunt in London as well as to celebrate Her Majesty the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

The egg was crafted with precisely 500 grams of rose gold and the design of this one-of-a-kind prize is based upon Fabergé’s much loved Matelassé jewelry collection. It features 60 gemstones – one for each year of Her Majesty's reign – set in the pleats of its quilted rose gold surface and comprising diamonds, emeralds, rubies and sapphires.

The Diamond Jubilee Egg, which is valued at $157,850, is the supreme prize in the world’s most prestigious Easter egg hunt underway now in London.  The Diamond Jubilee Egg will be on display at Fabergé’s London boutique at 14A Grafton Street until April 1, and then it travels to Harrods in Knightsbridge from April 2 through 8.

Sarah Fabergé, the great granddaughter of Peter Carl Fabergé, said, "Today is the first of 40 days that see the streets of central London host the world’s most prestigious Easter egg hunt, and the Diamond Jubilee creation is the winner’s prize. We are thrilled to be involved in a fun-filled, public project exploring creativity across so many artistic disciplines, and raising funds for two exceptionally deserving charities. I would personally like to thank all the artists involved.''

The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt, which began on February 21, seeks to raise GPB 1 million  for each of two charities: Action For Children (www.actionforchildren.org.uk) and The Elephant Family (www.elephantfamily.org).

The hunt is an interactive affair that leads the public across central London to locate more than 200 hidden eggs. Each egg is around 2.5-feet in height and was designed and decorated by designers and artists.  Each egg holds a unique code which, when texted to the number provided via SMS, provides one entry to win the Diamond Jubilee Egg. Each additional code submitted provides another entry, increasing the chances of winning the Diamond Jubilee Egg. Charges apply to each text message, with the proceeds going to the two charities.

The hunt also celebrates the creative talent of a myriad of artistic disciplines ranging from architects to product designers, fashion houses to jewelry designers and artists to artisans. Participating artists and designers include Marc Quinn, Chapman Brothers, Sir Peter Blake, Zaha Hadid, Nicky Haslam, Candy & Candy, Gordon Murray, Bruce Oldfield, Robinson Pelham, Sir Ridley Scott, Diane von Furstenberg and Mulberry.

After the hunt, each of these works  will be sold by auction to raise funds for the charities. See www.thebigegghunt.co.uk for more.

The Faberge Diamond Jubilee egg has been won by a member of the public who wishes to remain anonymous.  The Egg Hunt raised over £1 million for charity.  A nice tribute to the Queen from Faberge, and a lovely full-size egg which you can get a proper look at at Faberge's website - http://www.faberge.com/ne...0-1millionforcharity.aspx

I found it extremely generous of a private company to give such an expensive piece as a prize, and all proceeds to charity.  Smiley

Good tribute to the queen, better than some plaque or fancy event costing money. Thumb up

It seems a number of artists and people designed eggs, which were used in the hunt, and they were auctioned off after.

Did Waity go on the egg hunt? Thinking

I can hear it now: "Do you hunt for eggs by looking for them?" Whistle

God she's made it too easy.

Will Faberge make an egg to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II?
