In March a very lucky American sold the world's most expensive Fabergé Easter egg to an undisclosed private collector for £20 million. He found it in a bric-a-brac shop in the Mid-West and intended to melt it down for the gold. But he later realised that he landed on a gold mine, literally, after reading a newspaper article and realising that his egg had once belonged to russian royalty, namely Tsar Alexander III who had gifted it to his wife the Empress Marai Feodorovna in 1887. Historical - and priceless - it is decorated with gold garlands, Cabachon blue sapphires and rose diamonds, and even contains a surprise Vacheron Constantine diamond watch.
Turns out that the groundbreaking Fabergé egg isn't Easter's only egg-stravagant egg. We've rounded up six more luxurious eggs pictured above, all of which are available now. A very good reason to start believing in the Easter Bunny we think!

PS. If a £20million easter egg isn't for you and you'd rather celebrate Easter by helping a good cause, then look no further. Camila Batmanghelidjh of the charity Kids Company has teamed up with Millie Manu to launch the Buster Bunny Campaign, creating Easter Bunnies hand made in London from up-cycled Liberty print fabrics. All profits are going directly to feed the thousands of starving children in London. What's not to love? The bunnies are available to purchase on www.milliemanu.com for £19.
