Coronavirus: Fabergé and The Hunger Project’s COVID-19 Appeal
1 min read
Fabergé reveals a new Rose Gold Rainbow Surprise Locket, while raising funds for The Hunger Project’s COVID-19 Appeal. This beautiful creation comes with a heartfelt message embedded within as 50% of the purchase price from the sale of each piece will be donated to The Hunger Project’s COVID-19 Appeal until August 31, 2020. In addition, Fabergé will also be donating 50% from sales of their Colours of Love Multicolour and Rainbow Fluted Rings.
The rainbow has become a symbol of hope, unity and solidarity during the COVID-19 pandemic. Fabergé was inspired by this emblem of hope and has created a new surprise locket with a rainbow nestled inside.
The 18k rose gold egg locket opens at the touch of a diamond button to reveal a vibrant lacquered rainbow hidden within. The bursts of red, yellow and blue are accented with 3 round white diamonds. While one round Gemfields emerald symbolises light after a storm.
Fabergé says it chose The Hunger Project for this initiative after learning about their sustainable ethos and grassroots mobilisation. The latter is done to empower and support communities during the pandemic and beyond. The organisation’s sustainable approach means that The Hunger Project has been able to mobilise over 500,000 trained, local leaders in 12 countries around the world to help spread correct information and support to communities at risk. This is done to make sure no-one is left behind.
Charitable causes, especially during a crisis such as COVID-19 strikes a personal chord, as the Fabergé firm survived the Russian Revolution and the First World War. Many of Peter Carl’s clients were involved in crisis-led charitable causes, including Tsar Alexander II. He established the Russian branch of the International Red Cross. Later Peter Carl Fabergé commemorated the family’s older daughters’ work as Red Cross nurses by creating the Imperial Fabergé Red Cross Egg in 1915.
