Each collection within the series draws inspiration from a distinct James Bond film, with the debut collection paying homage to the timeless classic “Octopussy” (1983). The film’s intricate plot, revolving around a daring Fabergé egg heist, serves as a fitting muse for this inaugural collection.

Design Ingenuity: Crafting Iconic Pieces

The Fabergé x 007 Octopussy collection unveils two remarkable creations: the Limited Edition Octopussy Egg Objet and the Special Edition Octopussy Egg Surprise Locket.

Spearheaded by Fabergé’s Head of Design, Liisa Tallgren, and overseen by Creative Director Josina von dem Bussche-Kessell, these pieces embody a seamless blend of past, present, and future.

Drawing inspiration from the cinematic aesthetics of “Octopussy,” each creation promises to evoke a sense of nostalgia and sophistication.

The Limited Edition Octopussy Egg Objet stands as a testament to unparalleled craftsmanship. Limited to a mere 50 numbered pieces, this 8.4cm tall masterpiece is meticulously hand-crafted from 18k yellow gold.

Adorned with a rich green enamel reminiscent of the film’s iconic Fabergé egg, the objet features a mesmerising pattern of guilloché engraving, accentuated by intricately carved octopus tentacles. Set upon a stand embellished with white diamonds and blue sapphires, this objet exudes opulence and refinement.

Unveiling Hidden Treasures

At the heart of the Limited Edition Octopussy Egg Objet lies a captivating secret. Encased within the golden exterior, an 18k yellow gold octopus, adorned with white diamond suckers and black diamond eyes, awaits discovery.

This whimsical surprise pays homage to the film’s enigmatic antagonist, “Octopussy,” and serves as a testament to Fabergé’s legacy of playful innovation. Through meticulous attention to detail, each piece encapsulates the essence of its cinematic inspiration.

A Testimony to Craftsmanship

The creation of the Limited Edition Octopussy Egg Objet spans seven months and involves the expertise of 12 specialists across nine distinct crafts. From spinning and goldsmithing to enamelling and polishing, each stage of production demands precision and dedication.

With a legacy spanning four generations, the Fabergé Workmasters oversee the meticulous execution of each objet, ensuring that it meets the brand’s exacting standards of excellence.

The Elegance of Surprise: Octopussy Egg Surprise Locket

Complementing the objet is the Special Edition Octopussy Egg Surprise Locket, a testament to elegance and innovation. Drawing inspiration from the film’s iconic Fabergé egg, this locket features an 18k gold lattice framework adorned with blue sapphires and white diamonds.

Josina von dem Bussche-Kessell, Fabergé’s Creative Director, shares insights into the collaboration’s creative process: “Whilst work is continuing on the development of a large-scale one-of-a-kind Fabergé x 007 Egg Objet, we’re very proud to be unveiling this Octopussy capsule collection. Continuing our special partnership with EON Productions and the James Bond franchise, we decided the surprise inside this first capsule collection had to be an octopus, in dedication to the eponymous antagonist at the heart of the film.”
