Fabergé Crafts One-of-a-Kind ‘Game of Thrones’ Egg
The bespoke egg tells the story of character Daenerys Targaryen with nods to her dragons and costumes.
The iconic jeweler is teaming up with Warner Bros. Consumer Products to produce the Imperial Class Fabergé Game of Thrones Egg.
Fabergé’s Head Designer, Liisa Tallgren, collaborated with Game of Thrones’ costume designer Michele Clapton to create the design.
The egg’s design is inspired by the character Daenerys Targaryen, played by actress Emilia Clarke, and tells the story of her quest to sit on the Iron Throne.
“From the very beginning, the evolution of this egg object has been truly poetic,” said Clapton.
“The design references Daenerys Targaryen’s incredible journey and the importance of color within her costumes, her passion for her dragons, and the way she portrayed messages via her jewelry throughout her journey on the show.”
The character raises three dragons in the show, named Drogon, Rhaegal, and Viserion, earning her the title “Mother of Dragons.”
The textures of her dragons and the eggs from which they hatched are referenced with a scale-like design swirling around the one-of-a-kind egg.
The scales are hand-painted in violet, red, blue, and gray enamel, the color scheme of the character’s costumes, and accented with diamonds and moonstones.
The bespoke egg includes references to her costumes, which change along the character’s story arc as she moves from an “orphaned exile to conquering monarch,” said the jeweler.
Handcrafted in 18-karat white gold, a cut-out dragon wraps around the base of the egg, dotted with white diamonds, a nod to the jewelry Daenerys wears throughout the show.
The egg opens in three sections, representing her three dragons, where the scales turns from cool to fiery.
The flame-like scales are represented by a deep red ruby pavé at the bottom and graduate to pink sapphires and white diamonds at the top.
The colorful gemstones are called to the forefront by black rhodium plating over white gold.
Tucked inside is a second golden egg, pierced to show the form of three dragons, set with white diamonds.
Inside this smaller egg sits a miniature crown on a crystal base, set with a pear-cut ruby from Gemfields’ Montepuez ruby mine in Mozambique.
“I knew instantly what the secret gift should be, there was never a doubt; it had to be the crown that Daenerys believed throughout her life was her destiny. With the crown, I referenced her dragons, their wings sweeping around protecting the beautiful Gemfields ruby that represents Daenerys, her house color, and her fierce quest to rule,” said Clapton.
Daenerys’ dream of becoming queen of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros was not to be and her coronation ceremony was never held.
The crown represents “an imagined continuation of her saga,” said Fabergé.
