Summary, etc.:
Faberg:̌ A Life Of Its Own tells the epic story of the Faberg ̌name, from Imperial Russia up to present day -- a period spanning one hundred and fifty years of turbulent history, romance, artistic development and commercial exploitation. From the priceless bejeweled Easter eggs of the Romanov Tsarinas, to the more accessible 1970s allure of 'Brut by Faberg'̌ aftershave, the brand's enduring appeal is still recognized by today's fashion-conscious consumers worldwide. The film explores a multi-faceted empire that began with one man -- the prodigiously talented Peter Carl Faberg,̌ Court Jeweler of St. Petersburg. Filmed in various locations across Russia, Europe and the United States, Faberg:̌ A Life Of Its Own features contributions from the world's foremost Faberg ̌authorities, as well as personal reminiscences from members of the Faberg ̌family.
