Chaumet celebrates marriage, the founding ceremony of the Maison’s identity. On the 23rd of September, the Musée Ephémère, situated at 12, Place Vendôme, will be replaced by a setting created specially to welcome lovers and their projects.
This one-of-a-kind jewellery boutique dedicated to marriage renews the tradition of the Maison. It all started with the love story between Napoléon and Joséphine, and since then Chaumet has always placed happiness at the heart of its creations, celebrating tenderness, love and passion. From imperial tiaras to the Aigrette ring that crowns the finger, the Maison’s creations pay tribute to the bond between two beings. A privileged witness of its client’s most cherished occasions, Chaumet marks life’s happiest moments with precious milestones: engagement rings, wedding bands, tiaras… the eternal symbols that accompany personal ceremonies.
An infinity of choice for a unique occasion: in an elegant atmosphere, the Jewellery and High Jewellery collections are presented together so as to offer all of Chaumet’s creations. Exceptional pieces such as the Le Sacre de l’Amour ring, set with a 25.86 carat fancy intense yellow cushion-cut diamond and tiaras from the Joséphine collection will be on show to mark the opening of the boutique.
Designed as a voyage of discovery into the Maison’s age-old jewellery tradition, the boutique also offers a multi-coloured bouquet of Liens solitaire rings adorned with fine stones, the Joséphine salon, showcasing blue and white creations, combining sapphires and diamonds and, last but not least, the Liens, Frisson and Joséphine models available in an array of carat weights and accompanied by their matching creations – earrings, pendants and bracelets – giving the opportunity to create jewellery sets. Additional new creations will be introduced at the end of the year.
The design of this intimate cocoon was entrusted to Elizabeth Leriche, who gave priority to the touch and sensuality of materials. A gradation of soft colours combines with silky, light-reflecting furnishings: pearl-grey carpets play with the iridescence of the mirrors and alcoves, and contrast with the woven fabrics and sensuous mat finish of the leather armchairs. A collection of tiara models made of nickel-silver refer to the Chaumet tradition of creating these majestic pieces for weddings.
