Chaumet earrings: an empire, a capital, a jeweller
Napoleon still dominates the famous Vendôme column, suggesting that yesterday and today are one and the same. A young apprentice by the name of Marie-Étienne Nitot learned his trade from Marie-Antoinette's jeweler. Initially associated with him, he soon founded his own firm in 1780, and went on to complete some spectacular commissions, including Pope Pius VII's tiara, as well as the sword used at Napoleon's coronation, making him the official jeweler of the Imperial Court.
Although the emperor intended to make Paris the capital of luxury, it was Empress Josephine who commissioned and inspired the finest 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 pre-eminent place in the world of luxury was perpetuated. The jewelry company takes the name Chaumet which it owes to the director who ran it from the end of the nineteenth century through to the Belle Epoque.
