A dazzling immersion in the universe of Chaumet, the Parisian high-jewelry Maison founded in 1780 and known for its exceptional creations, crafted at the very heart of the place Vendôme. The Spirit of Chaumet offers an unparalleled journey into the world of the exclusive Parisian high-jewelry house, showcasing its key creations, stylistic principles, and multifaceted history going back more than 240 years. A rare chance to discover the behind-the-scenes life of a high-jewelry Maison and to admire seldom seen, one-of-a-kind creations, this volume is organized thematically, exploring twelve (in homage to the house’s historic address: 12 place Vendôme) core elements of Chaumet’s identity and creativity, from its Parisian roots to its cosmopolitan sources of inspiration and clientele, its iconic tiaras, inventiveness, arresting use of color, playful spirit, nature-inspired designs, and more. Authored by jewelry expert Gabrielle de Montmorin and benefitting from generous access to the Maison’s archives, this book is a definitive record of one of the world’s great jewelry houses, whose loyal clients have included Marie Antoinette and Empress Joséphine. With 450 beautiful illustrations, The Spirit of Chaumet will be a must-have for lovers of jewelry and luxury the world over. 450 color illustrations
