Russian jewelry purveyor Fabergé opened their first U.S. flagship on Madison Avenue in the spring of 2012, and while their bejeweled Easter eggs aren’t quite as prevalent nowadays, the New York store still houses plenty of sparkly swag for the high-end buyer. The boutique takes up 850 square feet of prime real estate near Hermès and Barneys, and showcases the brand’s jewelry collection, watches, and cuff links. Shoppers can browse encased jewels amid crystal chandeliers, plush vintage chairs, and a silk purple button-backed wall (not to mention framed images of Fabergé’s jewelry). And if that doesn’t make you feel like royalty, you can always recall how Carl Fabergé made his name by creating jeweled eggs for Tsar Alexander III. Today’s version of Fabergé eggs may be a bit smaller than they were in the past, but they are just as extravagant. The boutique’s signature egg is peach-pink, blinged out with a diamond-encrusted serpent and pearls, and purchases can easily hit the thousands.
