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.
History The style
Chaumet’s legacy of bucolic beauty is a treasure trove of inspiration that bridges past, present and future.
Contemporary jewellery and historic pieces are in line with a tradition of excellence that has been nurtured over the centuries.
This taming of the wild, a saga of nature versus refinement, is the dynamic that drives Chaumet’s natural history.
Chaumet’s naturalist jewellery depicts nature in all its wild, organic, fragile glory.
Finding bucolic beauty in a garden, woodland or meadow, delicate blades of grass or the graphic forms of mistletoe, the Maison’s designers ingeniously render plants and weeds alike in graceful, inspired creations.
Often with an added touch of sophistication - a bow entwined around a freshly-cut branch - they elevate the most ordinary plants to the status of jewellery.
Species are chosen for their cultural significance, imbuing the jewellery with symbolic value.
