Fabergé is hatching a new surprise collaboration with Warner Bros. Consumer Products to commemorate the extraordinary story of HBO’s award-winning television series, Game of Thrones, fusing their superior craftsmanship and artistic ingenuity with one of the 21st century’s most iconic TV series.
Co-designed by Fabergé’s designer, Liisa Tallgren and Michele Clapton, the Emmy and BAFTA-winning costume designer from HBO’s Game of Thrones, this one-off work of art is history in the making and offers a unique opportunity for one individual to acquire a modern day heirloom for future generations.
The timing couldn’t be better, with April 2021 seeing Game of Thrones celebrate the 10th anniversary of its debut episode, a major milestone dubbed “The Iron Anniversary”. This global year-long celebration will be a chance for fans to revisit the most unforgettable moments of the world’s biggest television series, and the jewel in the crown will be the Imperial Class Fabergé Game of Thrones Egg.
Liisa Tallgren worked closely with Game of Thrones’ Costume Designer Michele Clapton to create an intricate and enchanting design that tells the tale of Daenerys Targaryen’s quest to take her place on the Iron Throne.
This one-of-a-kind bespoke creation is symbolic of Daenerys’ dragon eggs while intertwining subtle nods to her stand-out costumes which celebrate the landscape around her and her evolving story arc. The design choices are informed by Daenerys’ journey from orphaned exile to conquering monarch and her ongoing quest for the Iron Throne.
Continuing Fabergé’s long tradition of combining the expected with the unexpected, this piece holds even more tales within. The egg opens to reveal a beautiful surprise in the form of a crown sat majestically atop a glistening crystal base. This is a miniature version of the crown that would have been presented to Daenerys should she have held the Iron Throne, set with a pear-cut ruby responsibly sourced from Gemfields’ Montepuez ruby mine in Mozambique.
