The Fabergé spider brooch is not genuine. A representative from Fabergé stated that talk of the spider brooch is nothing more than a false rumor, according to Time.com. In the same statement, the spokesperson said the creation of a spider does not fit into the scheme of Fabergé creations.
Fabergé has been in the fine jewelry business since 1917. The company is known for several brooches, such as the hibiscus, the black tulip clip, the love rose petal and the golden rose petal. In addition to brooches, the company also creates other jewelry pieces, such as bracelets, watches, rings and cuff links.
