Luxury French jewellery house Chaumet has opened a Parisian boutique solely dedicated to marriage.
On September 23 Chaumet’s Musée Ephémère, situated at 12 Place Vendôme in Paris, was replaced by a setting created specially to welcome couples looking for jewellery to celebrate their special moments.
The one-of-a-kind jewellery boutique celebrates marriage, the founding ceremony of the Masion’s identity.
The Maison began with the love story between Napoléon and Joséphine, and since then Chaumet has always placed happiness at the heart of its creations, celebrating tenderness, love and passion. From imperial tiaras to the Aigrette ring that crowns the finger, many of the Maison’s creations pay tribute to the bond between two beings.
The design of the intimate cocoon was entrusted to Elizabeth Leriche, who gave priority to the touch and sensuality of materials. A gradation of soft colours combines with silky, light-reflecting furnishings. Pearl-grey carpets play with the iridescence of the mirrors and alcoves, and contrast with the woven fabrics and sensuous mat finish of the leather armchairs.
Inside the bridal boutique jewellery and high jewellery collections are presented together. High-end hero pieces such as the Le Sacre de l’Amour ring, adorned with a 25.86 carat fancy intense yellow cushion-cut diamond and tiaras from the Joséphine collection are currently on show to mark the opening of the new concept.
Designed as a voyage of discovery into the Maison’s age-old jewellery tradition, the boutique also offers a multi-coloured bouquet of Liens solitaire rings adorned with fine stones, the Joséphine salon, showcasing blue and white creations, combining sapphires and diamonds and the Liens, Frisson, and Joséphine models are available in an array of carat weights and accompanied by their matching creations – earrings, pendants and bracelets – giving the opportunity to create jewellery sets.
Additional new creations will be introduced at the end of the year.
