The ritual of giving a love ring has existed since ancient times. It was said that a very fine nerve went from the finger, leading straight to the heart.
Ever since it was founded in 1780, Chaumet has specialised in “love jewellery”.
At that time, engagements were celebrated by giving a wedding basket. This was a strong tradition in the 19th century French and European nobility, in which the bride-to-be was given a basket of magnificent accessories, particularly jewellery.
