Egg, a tiara, picture frames, decorative boxes, and jewelry. Recently, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II loaned a "surprise" delicate automaton elephant to HMNS. Thought by many Fabergé historians to be lost, it was discovered in the British royal family's art collection and is now reunited for the first time in 80 years with the correlating 1982 Imperial Diamond Trellis Egg, owned by the McFerrins. As to why the brand chose Texas and Houston for its newest boutique, von Habsburg says, "Texas is already well- versed in the world of Fabergé, so it has the unique ability to connect Fabergé, past and present, like no other." Located in the Galleria main level in the jewelry corridor near Saks Fifth Avenue, the boutique is detailed in rose gold, and stocks contemporary fine jewelry inspired by the history of the brand, innovative timepieces, and an Egg Bar of signature egg pendants, a new interpretation of the historic Imperial Easter Eggs. T h e w a t c h e s u t i l i z e new movement developed exclusively for Fabergé by master watchmaker Jean-Marc Wiederracht and his te am at Agenhor in Geneva. The Lady Compliquée Peacock watch for ladies, von Habsburg's favorite, is based on a 1908 Imperial Peacock egg, and the Visionnaire Dual Time Zone watch for men both won the prestigious Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève.
