What better way, then, to present the ultimate token of a lover's commitment than to nest it inside a hand-made, chocolate Faberge egg?
The first Faberge egg was a gift given by Czar Alexander III to his wife, Czarina Maria Federovna on an Easter morning. To the Czarina's delight, inside the jeweled, enamel egg was a golden yolk, and inside the yolk was a golden hen. Inside the hen was hidden a diamond miniature of the royal crown and a ruby egg.
The gift was so successful, Czar Alexander commissioned one for every Easter thereafter, and Faberge eggs stand until today as a symbol of undying devotion.
No doubt, you may not be able to afford a real Faberge egg, but you can bring the same delight to your beloved with this chocolate rendition of a nested Faberge egg.
Use it as an engagement ring case or as an exquisite wrapping for a gift on any special occasion.
