A behind-the-scenes look at the prestigious French jeweler Maison Chaumet The history of the fine Parisian jeweler Chaumet has been entwined with that of France since Chaumet’s founding in 1780, when it quickly became the official jeweler to Empress Josephine. Here, the incomparable savoir faire of Chaumet is showcased through a year in photographs taken behind the scenes of the Maison, revealing every facet of the world of Chaumet: the selection of precious stones, jewelry design, the myriad talents and skills of the jewelers, the launch of new collections, exhibitions, and more. Crafted at the very heart of the Place Vendôme, the jewelry and watchmaking creations of Maison Chaumet reflect an exceptional tradition and pay tribute to Parisian style.
