We know, you’re probably still sore about that Game of Thrones finale that aired nearly two years ago. Whilst HBO can’t wipe out all memories of that episode ever happenng in a similar manner as Daenerys Targaryen wiping out a town, the award-winning TV series is attempting to recall those feelings of why you fell in love with Jon Snow and gang in the first place. It agrees that the formula was a simple one to begin with: Dragons! Now, ask the merch department how many replica dragon eggs they sold in the course of the last decade and they might still be busy counting the receipts. For the 10th anniversary since the premiere of this award-winning TV series, storied jeweller Fabergé has been roped in for a dragon appreciation project that will certainly pique the interest of GOT die-hards and imperial egg collectors. It is in the process of creating the most precious dragon egg inspired by the same ones that gave Khaleesi her power grabbing moments. Fabergé isn’t doing this alone either; it has tapped the show’s master costumer Michele Clapton to provide insights on the series as well as the stylings of the Mother of Dragons, which is certainly a crucial design element of this egg (yes, don’t expect a similar armadillo-like visual on this one). The press release states that “the design choices are informed by Daenerys’ journey from orphaned exile to conquering monarch and her ongoing quest for the Iron Throne.” The scales on the egg looks like precious phoenix feathers, fashioned with enamel, diamonds, and moonstones. It even sits on a pedestal fashioned after a dragon’s tail. Like the majestic eggs that Fabergé created in the past, this version hatches on-demand too. Its contents are just as jaw-dropping as it contains a miniaturised winged dragon protecting a ruby-set crown, a version that Daenerys would have worn if she took her rightful place on the Iron Throne (oops, spoiler alert?). Fabergé has priced the white gold egg at £1.6 million, which like those dragon eggs in the series, won't be short of suitors.
