Being one of the oldest jewelry boutiques in Paris Chaumet has created jewelry from Napoleon’s wife to the celebrities we see nowadays on films.
But how Chaumet was born?
The history takes us back to 1780 and is closely interwoven with the history of France.
The wedding of Napoleon and Josephine de Beauharnais, and later with the Archiduchesse Marie-Louise de Habsbourg-Lorraine, niece of Queen Marie-Antoinette, brought Chaumet numerous clients (becoming the ofi
cial jewelrer of Napoleon) and Nitot became the most famous jeweler in Europe constructing prestigiousness and loyalty of the clients.
With this history now we can appreciate one of the classical ring collections of Chaumet named “Josephine” which is a tribute inspired by tiaras.
