Chaumet is one of the most historic French jewellers, establishing themselves on the Place Vendome in the late 18th century and quickly gaining a wealth of significant and loyal clients. Founded in 1780 in Paris by Marie-Etienne Nitot, Chaumet quickly garnered a wealth of important clients, most significantly when they were appointed the official jeweller to Empress Josephine.

Combining Parisian style with exceptional craftsmanship and creativity, Chaumet retains its place as a high jewellery giant to this day, with pieces highly sought-after at auction. Modern day designs such as the Tiara ring setting pay tribute to the brand's history as a tiara maker to French aristocracy, with some truly breathtaking designs in their archives.
