|recreated in yellow and green gold, silver, pearls,|
and rose-cut diamonds by Fabergé in 1896 and given
to Czarina Alexandra, the wife of Czar Nicholas II.
Lilies of the valley were her favorite flowers
too—and this piece is considered the most important
Fabergé work in the United States. (It was
recently on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.)
