Few brand names on Earth pack the same sense of elite prestige as Fabergé, The jewelry, watches and other treasures that pour from that legendary company are reserved only for the true connoisseur. In a rare partnership, Fabergé is teaming up with Legado Cigars and Rome de Bellegarde Cognac to forge a set of four special collectors boxes commemorating the cigars debut outside of the Caribbean.
The boxes combine limited-edition Fabergé timepieces with samples from Legado and Rome de Bellegarde for auction, ranging in value between $760,000 and $1,200,000.
Legado Cigars is the cigar brand of Rorrey Fenty, rap artist and brother of Rihanna. These fine smokes originate in Barbados and the Dominican Republic before stepping onto the global stage recently at an event in London.
Fabergé curated a selection of rare timepieces for the gift box collection, including the Special Edition Fabergé Visionnaire I Rose Gold with Diamond Baguette Bezel Watch, a Haute Horologerie men’s watch. Legado contributed the only editions of its El Unico cigars that exist in the world. Rome de Bellegarde included a bottle of rare 1894 cognac in each box. Coined the “world’s most expensive cognac” by the Guinness Book of World Records, only 67 bottles exist.
The handcrafted boxes were designed and produced by Gemma M. de Ana and named after and document the three brands’ ancestral journeys, from east to west – St Petersburg, Barbados, Cognac and London, the point in the map where all three collide for Legado’s international debut.
