Our pendant is adapted from an ornate magnifying glass originally created by Peter Carl Fabergé (Russian, 1846–1920) ca. 1896–1908. Fabergé revolutionized the way jewelry was evaluated in Russia by emphasizing the design creativity and workmanship involved instead of just the value of the precious stones and metals.
