Feeling extravagant? Splurge on the world’s most expensive Easter eggs

Easter is a time for chocolate treats and what better way to celebrate than with a luxuriously decadent creation from UK-based chocolate company, Choccywoccydoodah. The eggs, which cost £25,000 (HK$240,900) weigh in at 100kg and feature Fabergé-style designs inspired by the 19th-century gifts bestowed on Russian tsars.

Coming in a trio and handcrafted from Belgium chocolate, each egg depicts mythical creatures such as unicorns, although custom designs can also be ordered. One design features a scene of Brighton’s Royal Pavillion where the company has a store. Each egg takes about three weeks to create and potential buyers are expected to be overseas investors or members of royal families.

Choccywoccydoodah’s owner and creative director Christine Taylor said, “I have always loved the actual Fabergé eggs. There will be people who will set their hearts on them and want to order them. We do have customers who will spend money if they want it enough.”

However, if you don’t mind splurging on inedible eggs, the ‘Mirage’ egg, created by Manfred Wild is an even more decadent purchase. Encrusted with 1,000 diamonds on the outer shell – 100 of which are brilliant-cut – the egg opens up to reveal an ornate globe made out of 18-carat gold. The globe lifts to reveal a rock crystal dove on a gold olive branch, which is designed to symbolise world peace.

The ‘Mirage’ took three years to make with elite craftsman across three continents all contributing to the process. The egg costs a cool £5 million, about the same price as a central London home, with the outer diamonds alone valued at £1.5 million.
