Peter Carl Fabergé, also known as Karl Gustavovich Fabergé, was born in Saint Petersburg May 1846 to a Russian jeweler whose business he'd eventually inherit.

Peter would lead his jewelry empire to greatness, earning the House of Fabergé the title of ‘Goldsmith by special appointment to the Imperial Crown’.
The House of Fabergé grew to a commercial powerhouse, creating thousands of art-jewelry. The creation of the famous Fabergé Eggs is in thanks to multiple Tsar's who asked Peter to create decorate eggs ( Fabergé Eggs ) for their spouses, each containing surprises.
