Russian Imperial Eagle Egg Gold Necklace by Marie Betteley
This beautiful Easter egg necklace is designed as a classic 14k yellow gold link chain suspending nine hand painted egg pendants from St. Petersburg, Russia. In colorful porcelain depicting a Romanov double-headed eagle-symbol of Imperial Russia, a fairy tale dacha with thatched roof, a pine cone in cobalt blue, the onion dome spirals on St. Basil’s Cathedral, and a landscape of Russian churches, among others of mostly foliate, mask or anchor design, each egg may be detached from its 14k gold spring ring and worn separately on a chain.
By Marie Betteley, contemporary.
21 in. (53.3 cm.) long.
