While the popular knowledge about Fabergé is focused on the Imperial Easter Eggs, commissioned by the Russia Royal family and other famous patrons, the Igor Carl Fabergé Foundation decided to offer a different approach by presenting “New Finds” and little known items as a point of departure for this exhibition. By presenting more than 100 pieces from private collections, the Igor Carl Fabergé Foundation is offering a glimpse into the richness and versatility of the Fabergé workshops.

“Fabulous Carl Fabergé” Exhibition

GemGenève 5th Edition

3-6 November 2022

Thursday – Sunday | 10:00-18:30

Palexpo, Halle 6 | Geneva | Switzerland

As the Igor Carl Fabergé Foundation celebrates its 40th anniversary this year, it is with great pleasure that we propose this unique exhibition as part of the Salon GemGenève, which aims to shed light on the vast riches of the Fabergé workshops and their influence on his contemporaries.

Bernard Ivaldi, President of the Igor Carl Fabergé Foundation

Many collected rarities have not been previously shown in Switzerland or Europe at large and some are being presented for the first time! The crowning achievement of the “Fabulous Carl Fabergé” Exhibition will definitely be the discovery and presentation of two Imperial eggs that were never identified before.

From a selection of more than 100 pieces, discover these rare Top 10 Jewelry Pieces that were made by Igor Carl Fabergé’s workshops and be sure to see them live this November during the 5th Edition of GemGenève.
