Chaumet: Place Vendome, Tiaras, Naturalism

Author(s): Alexis Gregory


Chaumet, established in 1780, is one of the crown jewels of Place Vendome. The first fine jeweler to settle on this square at the heart of Parisian luxury, in 1812, today Chaumet is still ensconced on Place Vendome after more than two centuries, and continues to balance its heritage of impeccable service and fine technical craftsmanship with innovative design embodying modern Parisian sophistication. Three Memoire volumes in a slipcase elegantly encapsulate the essence of Chaumet s heritage of creative artistry and expertise: Vendome, Birthplace of a Legend: Official jewelers to Napoleon Bonaparte, the brand s founders acquired an hotel particulier on Place Vendome in 1812, becoming the first fine jeweler on the square.The Art of the Tiara: The tiara is at the heart of Chaumet s story, the enduring inspiration for its technical expertise and artistry since the first lavish tiaras created for Empress Josephine.The Nature of Chaumet: From the beginning, Chaumet chose the romantic theme of flora and fauna to be a cornerstone of its creations, and to this day leaves, flowers, and insects are the signature of the brand, uniting past, present, and future."
