About Chaumet

Since its creation in 1780, Chaumet’s history has been intimately linked with the history of France. After collaborating with the jeweler of Queen Marie-Antoinette, the founder of the House, Marie-Étienne Nitot, established his own aristocratic clientele and became the official jeweler to Emperor Napoleon the First. Both as a designer and an innovator, he fulfilled sumptuous orders for Empress Joséphine and later, Empress Marie-Louise. For 230 years, exceptional skills have been channelled through the generations, seamlessly, from one master jeweler to another, bearing witness to the tastes of Parisian of every period and attracting crowned heads as well as painters, sculptors, writers and actors. Today, the House perpetuates its jewelry and Watch expertise through symbolic collections as Joséphine, Attrape-moi si tu m’aimes (catch me if you love me) Liens or Dandy. Chaumet’s heritage is displayed 12, place Vendôme and in major international exhibitions, at the instigation of Béatrice de Plinval, Museum Curator in charge of Chaumet’s patrimony.
