Worthy of a Queen

Chaumet, one of the oldest luxury jewellery brands in the world, continues to impress with new and sophisticated pieces.

The House of Chaumet was founded in 1780 in Paris and was the very first jewellery house to establish itself on the legendary Place Vendôme in 1812. The maison very quickly became the official jeweller of the former French Empress Joséphine. To this date, Chaumet has been recognised as one of the world’s most prestigious luxury jewellery brands. Their selection of unique pieces keeps growing and these are some of Chaumet’s latest creations.

Joséphine Valse Impériale tiara

The Empress has inspired Chameut for more than two centuries, and this tiara is the most recent interpretation of that inspiration in their collection. In a delicate waltz, the Joséphine Valse Impériale’s pear-shaped diamonds emphasise the elevated sweep of the tiara. The signature Chaumet filcouteau technique enables the metal of this High Jewellery piece to optically disappear in order to let the seemingly suspended stones shine.

Lacis High Jewellery

The set is part of the Perspective de Chaumet collection presented for the first time in the Middle East. It recalls the stone latticework and mashrabiyas of contemporary architecture, while rubellite stones and brilliant-cut diamonds are embraced by white gold. The interlacing Lacis delineates symmetrical and delicate jewellery while suggesting a maze of narrow streets. This modern reinterpretation of diamond mesh, a historic Chaumet signature, is especially striking in the form of a necklace, earrings and bracelets with airy volumes. In each piece, a subtle interplay of light and transparency is orchestrated by crossing the fil-couteau mountings, an iconic technique of the maison, which seems to depict the metal structure as invisible to let the sparkling stones take the main stage.
