Gemfields’ acquisition of Fabergé aligns the world leading supplier of coloured gemstones with one of the world’s most legendary brands.



Fabergé creates modern collections of extraordinary jewellery, watches and accessories for a discerning international clientele. Founded in 1842, Fabergé has been one of the most revered names in jewellery ever since Peter Carl Fabergé became official goldsmith to the Russian Imperial court.

The house created exquisite jewels and objects, including the legendary series of lavish and ingenious Imperial Easter eggs.

Today, Fabergé continues to explore ‘A Life in Colour’, pushing the boundaries of artistry and craftsmanship with the use of coloured gemstones, enamels and innovative techniques. Fabergé works closely, but not exclusively, with Gemfields when sourcing exceptional coloured gemstones for its contemporary jewellery collections. The relationship between Gemfields and Fabergé will continue to grow over the coming years, exemplifying our mine and market strategy.
