Prices! Faberge Jewelry Back on Market With Faberge Spider

A woman bearing a spider brooch walked into a pawn shop called Faberge and wanted to sell it for a meager $2000. Faberge is a company that has long identified itself with fine things and exquisite creations.

When the shop owner fingered the intricate piece of the spider brooch, he immediately made an offer of $15000, thinking that it would be a burden on his conscience to pay less than what it was truly worth - twice the amount that he paid actually.

Now there are rumors that the particular spider brooch that was sold for thousands of dollars might actually be fake. The creative head of Faberge said that an 8 legged spider was not what was considered to be a creative piece by the team so there is a high possibility that the piece of the spider brooch is not original.

The debate is still ranging and it remains to be seen whether the money spent on the classy spider brooch was spent in vain.
