Fabergé's rare gem: Alma Pihl
Fabergé's rare gem: Alma Pihl
The story of Alma Pihl is an unusual one. There were very few women in the goldsmith workshops in St Petersburg in the early 1900s, let alone in the position of designer. Alma's natural talent for drawing and unique eye for design resulted in some of Fabergé's most celebrated pieces of jewellery and two Imperial Easter Eggs.

Ulla Tillander-Godenhielm – great-granddaughter of St Petersburg goldsmith Alexander Tillander, a supplier to the Russian imperial court – has spent many years studying the art of the St Petersburg jewellers and recounts Alma's incredible story in this film.
