About Chaumet*

Chaumet is a jewellery and watchmaking designer founded in 1780 by Marie-Étienne Nitot. Fourteen artisans ply their trade in the workshop on Place Vendôme under the direction of foreman Pascal Bourdariat. As of 2012, it was owned by LVMH.

Parisian jeweller, Chaumet has been crafting tiaras, high jewellery items and exceptional timepieces since 1780 and for 240 years, has embodied a style and elegance which have accompanied every era. With a legacy boasting the patronage of Queen Marie-Antoinette and Empress Joséphine, Chaumet has served as a cornerstone of refined French haute joaillerie for nearly two and a half centuries. Founded in 1780 by Marie-Étienne Nitot who honed his craft apprenticing with the royal jeweller of King Louis XIV, the house that would eventually become Chaumet built its early reputation catering to the aristocracy. After the Revolution, Emperor Napolean forged a relationship with the resilient Nitot and commissioned extravagant jewels designed to elegantly illustrate the wealth of his empire. One such treasure, the sword Napolean carried at his coronation, made use of the impressive 141 carat Regent diamond mounted within the hilt to clearly convey the opulence and power of the crown. Continuing with Nitot’s son, François Regnault, the Maison maintained a close relationship with Napolean’s court, notably supplying extraordinary jeweled suites featuring rubies and emeralds for the Emperor’s second wedding in 1810 a year after Nitot’s passing.
