Light and precious, this jewelled fashion accessory is named after the feathers that adorn it, that can be changed depending on the occasion and outfit. Less formal than the tiara, the aigrette nevertheless gives an air of celebration and lengthens the silhouette.
Bold without being ostentatious, an alternative to the popular stars and crescents of the late 19th century, the Soleil was introduced by Chaumet in around 1900. In the centre of this aigrette from 1914, an emerald shines with all its powerful and delicate rays, a dawn full of promises.
