(January 8, 2009 Flemington, NJ) Roman Jewelers in Flemington is adding a new presentation to the educational program that the company offers to local public and private schools. The subject of the new presentation will be the history of Fabergé eggs, including a workshop during which students will have a chance to decorate wooden eggs in the style of Fabergé.
Between 1885 and 1916, the House of Fabergé in St. Petersburg became the largest jewelry firm in all of Russia and produced Imperial Easter Eggs for the last two Russian Czars. The Imperial Eggs, made with precious metals and jewels, are considered to be the finest and most famous achievement of the company led by Peter Carl Fabergé.
Because Roman and Sophie Shor, owners of Roman Jewelers, originally came to the United States from Russia, the tradition of the Fabergé eggs was a part of their own educational experience in Russian public schools. They wanted to share this experience with students here.
For the past several years, Roman Jewelers has presented jewelry related programs in elementary, middle and high schools throughout central New Jersey. They have also participated in school science fairs and enrichment programs, as well as programs for gifted and talented children. The Flemington store also provides instruction to Brownie and Girl Scout troops.
There is no charge to the schools for the presentation of these programs. Most can be adapted to almost any age group.
For more information regarding this program or to schedule a presentation, please call 908-237-1223.
Roman Jewelers is a family owned and operated store with locations in Flemington and in Bridgewater Commons. Roman Jewelers specializes in custom jewelry design, fine jewelry including diamond and bridal jewelry, and offers a wide selection of Swiss watches.
