Parisian jeweller and temple of the tiara, Chaumet has shrunk the diamond headpieces for which it is renowned down to finger-sized proportions. Chaumet's tiara making was at its peak during the Belle Epoque era, towards the end of the 19th century, and it still takes special commissions for this classic piece of bridal wear at its boutique at No 12 Place Vendome. You may not be wearing a tiara on your wedding day, but you will feel every inch the modern-day princess in Chaumet's new Joséphine Tiara engagement ring, which is fully pavéd with brilliant-cut diamonds, framing that perfect pear-cut white diamond. The Joséphine Collection is named after the wife of Napoleon Bonaparte, Marie-Josèph-Rose, who was given the pet name "Joséphine" by the future Emperor of France. Chaumet's first eminent customer in 1780, Joséphine was a spirited woman with exceptional taste - exactly the kind of woman that Chaumet continues to design its jewels for today.
