With Easter approaching I thought it might be fun to look at some interesting Easter Eggs. There is certainly no shortage of Easter Bunny talent. let’s take a look at a few.
This is the Diamond Stella Egg, studded with 100 half-carat diamonds, costing $100,000. The Diamond Stella Egg, standing 60cm tall was on display in 2006 at the La Maison du Chocolat in London.
In 2007 this Easter Egg costing 1 million dollars went on sale at Harrods. The Belgian chocolate half-egg is set with a necklace made from pear shaped and marquise diamonds from jeweler Edwin Solomon.
William Curley, a London based chocolatier is the proud Guiness World Record holder for crafting the most expensive non-jeweled chocolate egg that ever got sold at an auction. Christened as the Golden Speckled Egg, the egg was auctioned as part of the Big Egg Hunt presented by Faberge, which is a tradition related to the Easter egg festival. This contemporary and stylish chocolate egg was bought by the technology investor Cyrus Vandrevala for $10,000.
This year’s offering from Faberge is now stated to get into record books as the $157,850 diamond jubilee egg in honor of the British Queen’s stint to the throne. Studded with 60 gemstones which uniquely symbolize each of the years that the queen has been on the throne, this egg will be a part of a day-long egg hunt, which is a tradition related to the Easter egg festival. To mark this occasion, and also the long standing custom of the Easter egg hunt, Faberge has created a 500 gram rose gold egg, studded with 60 gemstones to announce the yearly egg-hunt contest. The Gemstones included specially crafted diamonds, rubies, emeralds, and sapphires. This particular egg however, stands as the ultimate winners’ prize, which one needs to arrive at after finding the other 200 unique eggs, planted in the city in city of London. Each of these other eggs contain and unique code each, which need to be sent through to Faberge via SMS. The more the entries from a single number, the more the chances of winning this diamond jubilee egg.
And lest I offend the Easter Bunny, I thought we should include the world’s most expensive Easter Bunny. In 2006 Harrod’s displayed an iconic Lindt chocolate bunny body double. This little bunny wasn’t made of chocolate though…. Measuring the exact same size as Lindt’s 200 gram chocolate bunny, this Harrod’s bunny is inedible but flashy, with it’s 24-karat gold, inlaid diamonds, rubies, citrine and topaz, and is valued in excess of $35,000.
Hope the Easter Bunny is good to you!
