When it comes to diamonds and tiaras – look no further than luxury French jeweller Chaumet. For those who are not familiar with the brand, Chaumet was founded in the late 18th century. The founder, Nitot, was passionate, creative and had an eye for detail, quality and originality. As time has gone on, Chaumet has continued to exude style and elegance, but has also introduced an element of modernity, which echoes that of true Parisian taste. It is exciting that we now welcome Chaumet to Australia. In anticipation for their first Melbourne boutique, located in the heart of Chadstone Shopping Centre, I was given the opportunity to visit the boutique and try on (but unfortunately not take home!) some of their flawless pieces.
One of Chaumet’s collections that really caught my eye was their amazing Joséphine collection, inspired by muse Joséphine. The collection perpetuates grace and elegance, with a twist of modern creativity – emphasised in the collections playful variation of colourful stones. The collection is both sophisticated and feminine and expresses the exact style and timeless nature of the Chaumet branding. Although practically impossible to pick favourites with a collection like this, I was instantly drawn to Joséphine Aigrette pieces with Garnet and Aquamarine stones.
