Chaumet jewelry, an empire within an empire
Marie-Étienne Nitot learned his trade from Marie-Antoinette's jeweler, and founded his own house in 1780. Noticed under the empire, he created the sword used for Napoleon's coronation. Having become official jeweler of the Imperial Court, he served the Emperor's ambition to make Paris the center of fashion, and adorned Empress Joséphine, his muse, with his most beautiful pieces. In 1812, the jewelry industry was established under the protective column of Place Vendôme, at number 12. The empire collapsed but the jewelry industry retained its imperial air. Late nineteenth century, Joseph Chaumet, gives him his name to crown his glory.
