Fabergé unveils Game of Thrones High Jewellery collection


The luxury Maison has debuted the latest phase of its continuing partnership with Warner Bros Discovery Global Consumer Products – the Fabergé x Game of Thrones High Jewellery collection.


The collection is set to be launched over the next two years in a series of ‘chapters’ which immortalise the extraordinary narrative of the award-winning HBO televisions series.


Chapter One: Dragon was unveiled at a private event in Dubai last night.


Created to delight fans by fusing Fabergé’s artistic ingenuity with the fantastical world of one of the 21st century’s most popular television shows, the High Jewellery collection has been conceptualised and designed in partnership between Michele Clapton, the Emmy and BAFTA winning costume designer for Game of Thrones, and Liisa Tallgren, Fabergé’s head of design, overseen by Fabergé’s creative director, Josina von dem Bussche-Kessell.


In April 2021, Fabergé hatched a one-of-a-kind bespoke objet d’art – the Fabergé x Game of Thrones egg – to coincide with the tenth anniversary of the series’ debut episode.


Following the popularity of this egg objet, which sold to a private collector for $2.2m (£1.8m), a more extensive series of wearable pieces is a natural evolution for this creative collaboration, according to the Maison.


The High Jewellery collection integrates design details from the sets, costumes, characters and landscapes of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros.


Each creation in Chapter One: Dragon has been inspired by the journey of orphan-turned-warrior Daenerys Targaryen, as well as her passion for her dragons and ability to use jewellery to reflect her power.


Chapter One: Dragon features five designs, with only ten collectible pieces available in each creation.


The Targaryen house colours of black and red, which Daenerys Targaryen embraces throughout the series, are predominantly featured in each piece.


Deep red rubies, responsibly sourced from Gemfields’ Montepuez mine in Mozambique, symbolise Daenerys’ fiery spirit.


The rare and precious gemstones are paired with white gold, rose gold, diamonds and black rhodium.


The Fabergé x Game of Thrones White Gold and Black Rhodium Diamond Egg Transformable Pendant and Fabergé x Game of Thrones White Gold and Black Rhodium Diamond Dragon Tail Earrings take design inspiration from the dragon skeletons featured in the TV series.


The Transformable Pendant features a statement dragon egg crafted from 18k white gold with contrasting black rhodium plating, suspended on a diamond set chain.


Formed of flame-like shapes, the egg is delicately set with white diamonds which represent flickering flames.

The arrow-like tail trails from the egg as if a dragon is hatching and emerging from within.


Both the tail and egg can be detached, acknowledging Daenerys’ character progression and offering enhanced wearability for collectors, suitable for both day and evening.


The matching Dragon Tail Earrings mimic the articulated chain of the necklace, and also have a monochromatic aesthetic with the graduation of 18k white gold through to black rhodium.


Accented with white diamonds, the arrow-like tip of the earrings is set with pear-cut white diamonds.


Further representing Daenerys’ ability to transform, the Fabergé x Game of Thrones White and Rose Gold Diamond Transformable Ear Cuff and Choker is an interconnected design.


A pear-cut responsibly sourced Gemfields Mozambican ruby is set in a rose gold flame emerging from the dragon’s mouth.


The Fabergé x Game of Thrones White and Rose Gold Ruby and Diamond Dragon Ear Cuff mixes fierce and feminine with pear-cut Gemfields Mozambican rubies radiating alongside pink sapphires and diamond spikes mimicking a dragon wing wrapping around, with the dragon head arching protectively over the ear.


Predominantly crafted from 18k white gold, the introduction of 18k rose gold offers a warm glow.


Celebrating the full revival of the dragons, the High Jewellery collection culminates in the Fabergé x Game of Thrones White and Rose Gold Ruby, Diamond and Sapphire Transformable Bracelet and Ring.


A dragon wraps around the finger, breathing gemstone set fire which bursts into a statement bracelet.


The bracelet is adorned with colourful gemstones, including Gemfields rubies, pink and yellow sapphires and brown and white diamonds.


The ring and bracelet, which are connected via a chain, can be detached and worn individually.


Discussing the inspiration behind the designs, Michele Clapton said: “The collection was inspired by the strength and vulnerability of Daenerys and her relationship with her dragons, to try and express this complex woman and her journey from orphaned exile to conquering monarch and her ongoing quest for the Iron Throne.


“It sits beautifully alongside the recent Fabergé x Game of Thrones Egg.”


Liisa Tallgren added: “The Fabergé x Game of Thrones ‘Dragon’ High Jewellery capsule collection presents different aspects of the mythical creatures, and documents their journey in the series alongside Daenerys.


“From skeletal designs that reference the dragon skeletons housed in a vault in the Red Keep in King’s Landing, through to creations which showcase Gemfields’ Mozambican rubies to hint that the dragons are back and alive, ready to breathe fire.”


Gemfields’ gemmologist, Elena Basaglia, explained the significance of the use of responsibly sourced Gemfields Mozambican rubies in the Fabergé x Game of Thrones High Jewellery collection: “Rubies have been long associated with passion, power and protection, making this vibrant red gem a fitting choice.


“North-eastern Mozambique has become renowned for yielding some of the world’s most outstanding rubies, displaying unrivalled colour and clarity as we see in these striking pieces.


“Each gemstone has been sourced responsibly by Gemfields, which means it creates a positive impact for the country and community from which it originates, mindful of the environment and proudly bringing benefit to Mozambican people.”


In keeping with Fabergé’s element of surprise, the next three chapters in the High Jewellery collection remain a secret and will be revealed throughout 2023.
