Participate to our photo contest
Stories of Liens


On the occasion of the re-opening of its boutique on rue François Ier, Chaumet is organizing a photo contest around Liens. 

The author of the most creative photo will be awarded a photo shoot and a dinner in a Parisian Michelin-starred restaurant, to share with the person of their choice. 

“Tribus” (Tribes), “Inséparables” (Inseparable), “Amoureux” (In Love), “Âmes-sœurs” (Soulmates): everyone is invited to 56, rue François Ier, to choose a blue Chaumet ribbon printed with one of these messages. It’s up to you then to stage yourself and your ribbon “tied” to a symbol or a friend, a family member, boyfriend or girlfriend, child, confidant, spouse…and tell your story of Liens with a photo. 

The photo must be posted on Instagram with the mentions #StoriesofLiens and @chaumetofficial. 
Participations are open until Sunday 24th of December.


#StoriesofLiens perpetuates the Chaumet tradition of sentimental jewels, intimate symbols of affection and bearers of secret messages. The four Liens collections; Liens Évidence, Liens d'Amour, Jeux de Liens and the latest Liens Séduction, tell the story of the multiple facets of attachment, from light-hearted playful seduction to the commitment of enduring love, from tender feelings to the promise of everlasting friendship. 

This photo contest is the occasion to rediscover the boutique on rue François Ier. Inspired by the French art of living, it expresses Chaumet’s poetic and naturalistic universe in an elegant atmosphere. Ears of wheat in sculpted wood and subtle gradations of blue illustrate the emblematic codes of the Chaumet culture.
