Faberge's "Le Carnet de Bal" White Diamond Collection
It's not every day that Fabergé unveils a new high jewelry collection. In fact, following the debut of the "Les Fabuleuses" collection in September 2009, this is only the second such collection which the famed jeweler has debut since 1917.
The "Le Carnet de Bal" white diamond collection recalls the aristocracy of St. Petersberg when noble ladies still used actual dance cards to coordinate their gallant galavanting across the ballroom floor. The collection features items valued as high as $1 million, and features all white diamonds. It was appropriately unveiled at the recent Russia Week in London, where such auction houses as Bonhams, Christies and Sothebys featured century-old Fabergé originals.
Along with the landmark collection, Fabergé also launched its own iPhone application that allows patrons to "try on" Fabergé jewels virtually with the device's built-in camera and call a multi-lingual team of sales advisors at the touch of a button.
