This book celebrates The McFerrin Collection of Fabergé masterpieces and reveals items that have never been published before. Also highlighted are a selection of important Imperial Russian pieces that appeared in the first book on the collection, From a Snowflake to an Iceberg: The McFerrin Collection (2013), along with a few of the collectors' personal favourites.

As the preferred jeweller to the Russian Tsars and European royalty at the turn of the 20th century, Peter Carl Fabergé (1846-1920) created an array of objets d'art that exude both opulence and innovation, and tell of a period in history likely never to be repeated. The McFerrin Collection has become one of the largest privately owned Fabergé collections in the world, and is on long-term loan to the Houston Museum of Natural Science in Texas.
