Fabergé - the name says it all.
Fabergé for unrivalled opulence and elegance;
epitome of style and taste.
Peter Carl Fabergé, also known as "Karl Gustavovich Fabergé"
(Russian: Карл Густавович Фаберже Karl Gustavovich Faberzhe, (30 May 1846 — 24
September 1920), was a Russian jeweller, best known for the famous Fabergé eggs,
made in the style of genuine Easter eggs, but using precious metals and
gemstones rather than more mundane materials.
Google’s May 30, 2012, doodle showcased interactivity at its most
decadent. To commemorate jeweller Peter Carl Fabergé’s 166th birthday, Google
encased each letter of its logo in a unique Fabergé egg that would open with the
click of a mouse.
Fabergé was a favourite of the Russian royal family’s, designing intricate
versions of his signature eggs annually, each more elaborate than the next. His
reputation as a meticulous designer earned him a spot as Russia’s representative
in the 1900 World’s Fair in Paris.
As tribute, Google’s doodler went through
many incarnations of the design before settling on the final, artful one.
