Paris, the city of love. With effortless elegance, French Maison Chaumet honours two love-dazed newlyweds frolicking around Paris, as the bride shows off new diamond jewellery with the greatest of grace and a touch of French insouciance.
Chaumet has been inextricable to the royal family for more than two centuries, and is known as the ‘Blue Bloods’ of the French temple-class jewelry and luxury watch brand.
It all started with the passionate love Napoléon had for Joséphine and today, Chaumet brings love up to date, French style, with the new video, ‘L’Amour à Paris’ (Love In Paris). The story goes like this: tousled hair and an exquisite vintage tiara, a black leather biker jacket draped over a skimpy couture wedding dress, an heirloom-worthy diamond engagement ring, antique lace and killer heels. These are some of the carefree moments captured in Chaumet’s latest video and a series of de photographs by director Matthew Brookes, who deftly introduces the Maison’s new bridal jewellery.
Incredibly romantic and impossibly chic, Chaumet’s new bridal video brings love up to date, French style. Our young bride trots, twirls and skips around Paris in some spectacular jewels, trailed by her smitten groom and a flowing lace veil. During an impromptu little shimmy in the Tuileries gardens we catch a glimpse of her Joséphine Aube Printanière diamond earrings, simple white gold pendant and impressive Josephine Aigrette Imperiale diamond engagement ring. At twilight with wind-blown hair, she cradles next to her lover, the 70 diamonds in the Splendour necklace and earrings shining as bright as the Eiffel Tower against the evening sky.
With an unfailing dedication to creativity, Chaumet proves again that its love for jewellery is indeed everlasting.
In an open-top classic Citroën DS skimming over the cobblestones of Rue de la Paix, we catch sight of the impossibly pretty Joséphine Aigrette Imperiale diamond tiara sparkling in her hair. Monsieur is at the wheel wearing a dashing pink gold Dandy watch. Whisked up to Chaumet’s salon overlooking the Place Vendôme, he tenderly places the diamond ‘Perles de Vénus’ tiara on her head, crowning her with the history of Chaumet’s heritage, which she wears so very lightly, happily ever after.
Chaumet’s Joséphine Aigrette Imperiale diamond engagement ring in platinum and white gold with a 3.33ct pear-shape diamond, surrounded by brilliant-cut diamonds, is shaped like a tiara, ready to be the crowning glory on your finger.

Chaumet Joséphine Aigrette Imperiale diamond tiara continues the Chaumet tradition of creating bridal tiaras.
Famed for its tiara-making skills over the centuries, queens, princesses and movie stars have turned to Chaumet to create the ideal bijoux de tête. Chaumet’s jewels echo the sumptuousness of historic commissions, such as the jewels made for Empress Joséphine’s marriage to Napoléon. This platinum tiara can be worn on the head in several different ways thanks to its lightness and simple design. At the centre, crowning the head, is a 3.35 carat pear-shaped diamond.
