About the Brand
Axenoff Jewellery is a distinctive Russian jewellery brand. The concept of the Axenoff Jewellery brand is based on Russian history and culture. The designer’s intent and creative designs are intertwined with the Russian jewellery tradition of the 16th-19th centuries, as well as the beginning of the 20th century. The thematic design of Axenoff Jewellery is closely linked to the very richest cultural and historical heritage of Russia. It evokes the memory and images of Russia’s people who have left a bright imprint in Russian history and in stories from Russian folkore, as well as the masterpieces of Russian art – Vasnetsov, Bilibina, Vrubel, and outstanding works of opera and ballet, including Glinka’s “Ruslan and Lyudmila”, Mussorgsky’s “Boris Godunov” and Rimsky-Korsakov’s “The Tsar’s Bride”, “Sadko” and “The Snow Maiden”. The “Peacock feathers” earrings are as if straight out of Makovsky’s painting “The Toilet of Venus”; the “headdress” earrings, likewise, could have belonged to Elena the Fair from Vasnetsov’s “Ivan Tsarevich the gray wolf”. The “Order” brooch was inspired by the image of the young princess Figchen (Sophia Augusta Frederica von Anhalt-Zerbst, otherwise known as Empress Catherine II ‘The Great’), whilst the tiara, earrings and rings from “The Romanovs” collection was inspired by the history of the last Russian Emperor and his family.
