Chaumet’s library welcomes a second box-set of three books published by Assouline. Celebrating the High Jewellery collections and two of the Maison’s founding themes, these works mark an annual invitation to delve into Chaumet’s culture.
Hortensia or the garden of delights. In the intimacy of a floral boudoir at dawn, a young lady collects dew drops to illuminate her drawing and give life to a dreamlike jewel, the Hortensia ring. As a tribute to Empress Josephine, Chaumet’s first client and inspiration, a radiant woman who was passionate about the beauty of flowers and the magic of gardens, the Hortensia collection lends profusion of color and generosity of form to both jewellery and high jewellery pieces.
