Chaumet, not only for queens

French Maison Chaumet has released updates to its Joséphine High Jewellery collection, and the new designs are a celebration of one of the favourite gemstone cuts of the French Maison’s most famous patron – the pear.

Elegant and eternally modern, this 15th century gemstone cut is the star of a new jewellery collection from the French Maison

Empress Joséphine Bonepart, wife of Emperor Napoléon Bonepart, was one of Chaumet’s earliest clients, and more than a century later the house continues to pay its respects. Many of Chaumet’s jewels take inspiration from the Empress, who was famed for her flamboyance.

Inspired by Empress Joséphine’s sovereign allure, the French Maison unveils new timelessly elegant Joséphine High jewellery creations. True masterpieces of refinement and delicacy that pay a dazzling tribute to the Maison’s bicentenary jewellery virtuosity and exceptional heritage.

The pear cut, with a shapely curve at one end that leads up to a sharp point, has long been a favourite amongst gem cutters. The first pear-cut diamond is said to have originated in Flanders in the mid 15th century. A diamond pioneer named Lodewyk van Bercken is credited with its invention; he is also the man who invented the diamond polishing wheel, which transformed the look of diamonds forever.

The asymmetrical pear-shaped diamond is loved for its elegance. When worn in a ring with the narrow tip of the diamond pointing to the end of the finger, a well-proportioned pear can create the illusion of elongating the finger.

In its latest homage to Joséphine, Chaumet has updated its diamond jewellery collection of the same name with designs that celebrate the pear shape, which was said to be one of the Empress’s favourite cuts.

This year’s additions to Chaumet Joséphine celebrate the pear in all forms. Across the collection, you will find pear-shaped diamond nestled into gold and diamond pavé V formations, dripping from ear climbers, and adding sparkle to hairlines in delicate tiaras. Pear-cut aquamarine and blue sapphire add colour to the collection, which is otherwise dominated by white diamonds and white gold.

Chaumet has also played with the shape of the pear cut as a motif, using it as a frame for small round brilliant diamonds to create jewels with more accessible price tags than would be possible for the same styles using large pear cuts of diamond.

The collection also includes watches. These, too, play on the pear shape, with elegant dials that follow the formation of the cut. Available in 18k white ans yellow gold, some have fully diamond pavé-set dials, others have faceted sapphire glass to give the impression of a pear-cut diamond with a small pear-shaped diamond set at 12 o’clock.

The Maison’s new watchmaking icon. Discover Chaumet’s Josephine Aigrette, an inimitable jewellery watch for women who choose distinction.

In a slick digital presentation of Chaumet Joséphine, which allows you to virtually stroll around the lavish rooms of the brand’s Place Vendome store, the jeweller describes the Empress’s personality as “graceful” and “eternally modern”, and half a millennia on from its invention, much the same can be said for the pear cut.

Crown your style, with Chaumet’s Joséphine jewellery and watchmaking creations. A both audacious and refined collection, for inimitable women who choose distinction. The Chaumet Josephine Collection is available at Chaumet Boutiques and selected stores worldwide. Come into the beautiful world of Chaumet.

Chaumet unveils 12 – Rêverie Nocturne watch

Since my childhood I have always loved the Place Vendôme with its imposing facades, beautiful street lightning, and its iconic column in the center of the square. And not to forget, the beautiful boutiqurs housed on on the Parisian square, Boucheron, Breguet, Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, and of course Chaumet. I still cherish s my automatic golden Jump Hour watch.

Since its creation in 1780 in Paris, Chaumet’s history merges with the history of France, quickly becoming the official jeweler of Empress Josephine. The Maison’s Fine Jewelry know-how has been passed down for nearly 240 years from one generation to the next. Created in the heart of Place Vendôme, the jewellery and watchmaking creations, for women and men, reflect these exceptional know-how and bear witness to Parisian taste.

The oldest jeweler at the Place Vendôme, Paris, never ceases to amaze with his ability to anchor himself in the air of the times. Intimately linked with history, Chaumet’s great hours still nourish the creativity of the Maison and constitute an unbroken thread between past, present and future. Today the French Maison unveils the Infiniment 12 – Rêverie Nocturne watch, a virtuoso tribute to the Maison’s 240th anniversary and the reopening of the12 Vendôme hôtel particulier.

Produced in a limited series, this exceptional creation brings together several highly specialised crafts, such as grand feu enamel by artist Anita Porchet. Each dial is secretly adorned with a tiny stone from 12 Vendôme, enabling the wearer to carry a little bit of Chaumet and the mythical Place Vendôme with them wherever they go.
