This chicken-in-egg pendant was inspired by an objet d'art in the royal treasury in Denmark. The "hen-in-an-egg" theme was traditional for Easter gifts, even before Fabergé made his spectacular eggs for the Russian tsar. The Danish egg is thought to have been made in Paris. This necklace consists of an 18K gold egg that opens to reveal a silver hen with diamond eyes. The hen then opens to reveal three tiny golden eggs.
