By: Barbara A. Moss
Boregaard has taken nature’s most perfect shape and adorned it with many of his classic textures including Diamond Dust, Wave and Confetti. Each Mini Egg (approximately 9mm x 12mm) is handmade in Boregaard’s New York City workshop. The Boregaard Mini Egg Collection ranges in price from $365 for the Striped Mini Egg (solid Sterling silver with 18k yellow gold loops) to $3,730 for the Confetti Mini Egg (solid 18k yellow gold with 27 brilliant diamonds).
The Mini Eggs can be purchased individually or in multiples, with or without a chain, or as finished necklaces as show on the eStore. A new "behind the scenes video" about Boregaard Mini Eggs is available for viewing: http://www.youtube.com/
About Pedro Boregaard: In 1966, following training at renowned Hemmerle, Jeweler, in Munich, Germany, Pedro Boregaard worked for several years as a jeweler in London and Norttingham, England, before settling in New York City in 1974. He started at the top, at Tiffany & Co., where he worked for seven years and rose to head a workshop of 40 jewelers. His work there was primarily developing and executing the designs of Tiffany’s star designers. Paloma Picasso, Elsa Peretti and Angela Cummings have each acknowledged his creative contributions to their collections.
In 1983, he left Tiffany & Co. to open his own design workshop on 48th Street across the street from Rockefeller Center, where he quickly established himself by winning numerous international design competitions. His jewelry was soon sold in selected stores throughout the United States. In 1994, Boregaard opened an elegant showroom on 53rd Street and Madison Avenue, an address soon to be known to a discerning international clientele.
In 2005, after losing his lease to make room for another high-rise in midtown Manhattan, Boregaard “split” his business, opening a workshop on Broadway and Lafayette in Manhattan and establishing a design and model-making operation in New York’s Sullivan County. This year, his 27th in business, will mark the opening of Pedro Boregaard’s own retail shop on the block-long Main Street of Narrowsburg, the quintessential Delaware River town in Southwestern New York State.
