An empire, a capital, a jewelery
Napoleon still dominating the famous Vendome column today seems to indicate that yesterday and today are coming together. A young apprentice, named Marie-Etienne Nitot, learned his trade from Marie-Antoinette's jeweler. He was associated with him at the beginning, but soon founded his own firm in 1780, and carried out spectacular orders: the tiara of Pope Pius VII, but also the sword used at the coronation of Napoleon, and made him the official jeweler of the imperial court. Although the Emperor intended to make Paris the capital of luxury, it was Empress Josephine who placed the order and inspired the most beautiful pieces in the collection. The jewelry house moved to 12 Place Vendôme in 1812, when Nitot's son took over the business. Time passed, the empire collapsed, the monarchy was restored, but the taste for splendor remained and the ambition to give Paris a preponderant place in the field of luxury continued. The jewelry store took the name of Chaumet, which it owes to the director who was in charge from the end of the nineteenth century until the Belle Epoque.
Josephine, Chaumet and you
The inspiration, the muse, the only one: the eternal Josephine. If Napoleon helped launch the House of Chaumet, it was the empress who inspired its most famous models and stamped her incomparable style. Her imprint continues to impose itself, her exquisite taste still sets the tone. The woman of yesterday breathes the model that will sublimate the current woman that you are. Close, intimate, complicit, she even gave her name to one of the most prestigious collections of the house.
