Delve into Chaumet's archives and discover the origins of its jewellery.
This one-off exhibition offers visitors an unprecedented opportunity to discover a handpicked selection of Chaumet jewellery dating from the Romantic period to the 1980s. Held at the Maison’s flagship store, the exhibition centres on the naturalism that has always been a rich source of inspiration for Chaumet. Marvel at the intricate attention to detail in a wide array of historic jewels from the jeweller’s rich archives, which are on display alongside original sketches and the black and white photographs that are still taken to document every piece. A high jewellery collection incorporating the iconic bee in a vibrant palette of coloured gemstones has also been created to coincide with the exhibition.
