Russian families used to exchange eggs during Easter. In 1885, Czar Alexander III Of Russia ordered his goldsmith Peter Carl Fabergie to create a special Easter egg for his wife Czarina Marie on Easter morning.
As ordered, Fabergie delivered an egg to Czarina. When she opened it, she saw a golden yolk, hidden inside a golden hen. Mighty pleased, she made it a tradition. Each jewelled egg held a surprise that was always unique.
