Fabergé Selling ‘Game Of Thrones’ Inspired Dragon Egg For $2.2 Million

It’s been almost three years since the finale of Game of Thrones.  But for Fabergé, the tale of one bedazzled dragon egg has just begun.  The brand has announced a new piece in their collection of rare, jeweled eggs: an “egg objet” inspired by Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), a k a Mother of Dragons, on HBO’s blockbuster series “Game of Thrones.”  Replete with diamonds, rubies, 18-karat white gold and fine enameling, the price of the egg is estimated at around $2.2 million, and it’s being hailed as a “one-of-a-kind bespoke creation” that marries Fabergé’s “superior craftsmanship and artistic ingenuity with one of the 21 century’s most iconic TV series,” according to the website.  Atop a crystalline lattice base that mimics a dragon’s scaled tail, the sparkling sphere opens to reveal a ruby dragon that clutches a miniature crown for the would-be heir to the Iron Throne, featuring a “responsibly sourced,” pear-cut Mozambique ruby.  The House of Fabergé began creating their iconic eggs nearly 180 years ago in Saint Petersburg — more than 100 years after the French Fabergé family (then dubbed Favri) fled religious persecution by Louis XIV during the late 17th century and resettled in the Baltics.
