Extravagant diamond-incrusted egg
Mirage: between Faberge and Damien Hirst Skull
The world’s most expensive and extravagant diamond Easter egg has just been revealed. The Mirage is a combination of a luxury Faberge egg and the famous Damien Hirst Skull with a total value of $8.4 million. This art piece has more than 1,000 diamonds on its shell, worth $2.5 million alone. The diamond-encrusted egg opens up to reveal a hand-crafted ornate globe made from 18 karat gold. Within the globe, a crystal dove with a gold beak is perched on a gold olive branch. The dove and olive branch symbolize world peace.
It has taken elite craftsmen from across three continents to create the Mirage. Manfred Wild was responsible for the Mirage’s design and assembly, he has truly brought the creation to life. The jeweled egg currently belongs to a mystery owner and several jewelers are trying to persuade that person to sell it. However as the current situation is now, the owner shows no intention of selling the wonderfully special art piece.
