What if an egg could hide another one? This is the surprise that Jeff Oberweis and jeweller Fabienne Belnou have dreamed up together for Oberweis House’s new chocolate creation.
Both creators believe in the power of chance encounters and exchanging ideas from which they can draw creative inspiration. It was during a visit by the founder of the Oberweis pastry shop to Fabienne Belnou’s jewellery shop that the idea of a collaboration began to blossom. It took just a few hours of conversation before Belnou and Oberweis came up with some ideas. While admiring a pair of flat, egg-shaped openwork earrings, Oberweis realised he had the perfect idea for an exceptional Easter egg. Throughout their discussions, Belnou proposed several other excellent ideas (including a flower and a cocoa bean), but in the end, it was an egg-shaped pendant that finally emerged from her workshop in Luxembourg City.
The two eggs, however, are not identical. Their contrasting proportions determined certain characteristics, as the lightness of a chocolate egg bears little resemblance to the density of a piece of jewellery. The result? A magnificent twisted egg in ivory chocolate, delicately sprayed with orange chocolate — the perfect blend of elegance and sweetness. Like a work of art, it is presented on a chocolate base and surrounded by a chocolate sculpture in the form of an openwork egg.
Just three of the eggs hold one of three jewels meticulously handcrafted by the jeweller Lauro Lichius in Fabienne Belnou’s workshop. Each of these creations is unique in composition: one is yellow gold, another pink gold, and the third 18kt white gold. These pendants — each worth €3,300 — are encircled with 24 sparkling diamonds.
Imagine being one of the lucky winners of these precious treasures? Try your luck when you buy a limited-edition egg in selected Oberweis shops* this spring. Just remember — only the chocolate egg is safe to eat!
Good luck, gourmet chocolate lovers!
