In the heart of Place Vendôme in Paris, artisans of Chaumet’s High Jewelry workshop  crafts jewelry that combines tradition and modernity. Chaumet’s collections are inspired by the multi-faceted personality of Empress Joséphine, the Maison’s first prestigious client, who designated Chaumet as her official jeweller. Since the founding of the Maison in 1780, Chaumet’s timeless style has continually evolved with the times and influences of the world for more than 244 years.

Bridging tradition and modernity, 12 Vendôme embodies the soul of Chaumet through three exceptional spaces: the boutique, the historic grand salons and the High Jewelry workshop. Per the official website, “At Chaumet, we are committed to sharing the values of excellence and passing on unique savoir-faire that have inspired us for over 240 years. We are proud of our exquisite craftsmanship – still practiced at Place Vendôme, where Chaumet became the first jeweler to take up residence – as well as the distinctive Parisian elegance we have brought to prestigious customers over the ages. This rich heritage continues to inspire us as we innovate and move forward to offer our customers ever more contemporary and inclusive jewelry creations and explore exciting new possibilities and trends around the world.”

Chaumet continues to expand today as part of the LVMH Group, with 80 boutiques in major cities across Europe, the Middle East, Japan, Korea, China and the Asia-Pacific region. The maison attaches importance to the sourcing of its gemstones and precious metals, placing priority on socially and environmentally responsible sources. As a member of the Responsible Jewellery Council, Chaumet also applies the Kimberley Process, which certifies the ethical origin of rough diamonds.

Bee My Love

The emblematic motif of the Bee My Love collection is the honeycomb, derived from the bee. Refined to abstraction, these creations shine with mirror-polished gold offset by brilliant diamonds. An icon of Parisian jewelry, each piece in the Bee My Love collection can be worn alone or as a set. One of the most versatile and popular pieces is the Bee My Love Bracelet in pink gold, semi-paved with brilliant-cut diamonds. This can be beautifully complemented with the Bee My Love Pendant in rose gold offset with an empress size diamond. Or the dainty Bee My Love Hoop Earrings in pink gold with five brilliant-cut diamonds for a total of 0.41 carats. These hoops have been developed to adjust to the shape of the face as one of the rings is worn specifically to the right ear and the other to the left ear, in order to be perfectly placed on the lobe. Wear the pieces alone for luncheon or high tea and as a set for a gala evening.

Joséphine Imperial Waltz Tiara

With bold femininity, the legendary Parisian jewellery house’s Joséphine collection is evocative of the Empress’s taste for fashion, celebrating pieces with contemporary style. The signature style of the collection is pear cut gems, a favourite of Joséphine. Today, one of the most popular luxury pieces in this collection is the Joséphine Imperial Waltz Tiara in white gold, set with a brilliant pear diamond of about 2.50 carats, eight pear diamonds for about 5.30 carats, brilliant-cut and pear diamonds. Reserved for the most special occasions—weddings, state events and society balls—these tiaras nod to an era of decadence and debutantes, making the wearer look and feel like a princess.
