New Josephine high jewellery collection
Perpetuating a tradition founded on ceremonial jewels and the art of majestic femininity, Chaumet revisits the splendour of Josephine’s court finery in contemporary jewellery.
Airy parures, sparkling stones, tiaras enhancing the beauty of those wearing them… For over two centuries, Chaumet has been dedicating its High Jewellery creations to those who cultivate the art of appearance at the height of their femininity. An expert in the art of selecting and associating her jewels, today Joséphine remains the inspiration for these creations. Combining her sense of spectacle, the impact of her tiaras and her taste for exceptional stones, Joséphine, Joséphine – Chaumet au Firmament is the purest and most precious expression of the empress’s spirit.
Joséphine Aigrette Impériale
The tiara, the statement piece of Joséphine’s appearances at court, is revisited in parures set with exceptional central stones: intense blue or bold pink sapphires, pigeon’s blood rubies, bright green emeralds, white and yellow diamonds, and pearls.
Joséphine Éclat Floral
Bringing out the majesty of cushion-cut central stones, these creations are a precious tribute to one of the most exceptional jewels in Chaumet’s history: the Regent, a legendary diamond set by the founder of the Maison into Napoleon’s coronation sword. Available in rubies, blue and pink sapphires, and white and yellow diamonds, the Joséphine Éclat Floral parure distinguishes and elevates the wearer.
Soir de fete pour Joséphine
In parures glittering with rubies, and white or yellow diamonds, Joséphine’s allure meets that of another inspiration. The fuchsia tiara, made in 1919 for Hedwige de la Rochefoucauld to wear for her wedding to Prince Sixtus of Bourbon-Parma, is revisited in necklaces, earrings, aigrette rings and cocktail rings. The naturalistic motif, reinterpreted in colour, revives an historical piece that has become emblematic.
Born of the virtuosity possessed by the High Jewellery atelier at 12 Place Vendome, these creations highlight the different facets of the Maison’s expertise. The stones are individually chosen not only to meet the criteria of excellence, but also for the emotion expressed by their purity, their harmony or their luminosity.
