A few weeks ago I purchased a pre-loved Fabergé Egg Pendant. It is 18K rose gold, diamonds and enamel.

It was part impulse buy, part practical purchase (I don't have a pendant necklace and really need one for Zoom meetings!) and part a marker of a big event in my life. I was recently appointed to the Board of Directors of a major American art organization. Its a big deal in my field and I wanted to mark this accomplishment with something pretty that I will wear and love for many years to come.

I bought the necklace off TheRealReal and it took a really long time to arrive!!! At first I was disappointed when I saw it because I was expecting it to be larger than it is. However, I decided to wear it for a day (tags and all) before deciding if I wanted to return it.

I ended up falling in love with it! I adore the soft rosy colors in both the egg and the chain. It is rose gold (even though TheRealReal said it was yellow gold.) I prefer rose gold, so that was a happy surprise! I wear a lot of peachy pink colors and this necklace looks lovely with a big part of my wardrobe.

Yay!

Here it is, the "Palais Tsarskoye Selo Pendant":

Gosh, this is wonderful!
I love that you chose something from a historically important maker, not just because it was pretty.
What a treasure from the House of Faberge!!

Here's a zoomed-out pic (please ignore the Covid-roots! Haven't been to a stylist in an age!))

Lovely pendant! It really matches the peach-colored efflorescence in the brick of your office!

It actually looks more substantial and plenty big (!) in the zoomed-out view.

Congrats on the Board seat. If I know anything about BoD's for the arts, they will expect you to sell that and donate the proceeds... :cool2:
