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.
Light-as-air assembling, unexpected combinations of hard and precious stones; the work obeys the laws of intuition and excellence so that each piece is both supple and structured. These shimmering creations, these flowing nuances of colour, these marvels of asymmetry, all bear witness to the Maison’s commitment to excellence; 600 to 800 hours of work are required for one necklace. At Chaumet, each jewel expresses both construction and emotion, with the drawing as first and ultimate master. “It takes time to reach perfection“.
