In the latest episode of History Gems, Dr Nicola Tallis is joined by historian, author and playwright Gareth Russell to explore the history of the Romanovs and the stories behind some of the most famous pieces of jewellery of all time - the Fabergé Eggs. Nicola and Gareth go back to the 1885 when Emperor Alexander III, through the intermediary of his uncle, Grand Duke Vladimir, commissioned an Easter egg from Fabergé as an Easter present for his wife, Empress Maria Feodorovna. Initially planned by Fabergé to contain a diamond ring, the actual finished version, following specific instructions of the Emperor, included a ruby pendant of great value. Only 57 of the eggs remain, and according to Gareth only one looks like an actual egg. Which one is he talking about? You’ll have the listen to find out!
