Chaumet and its temporary museum

Chaumet transforms one of its boutiques on Place Vendome into a museum. The theme of this first temporary exhibition entitled “Promenade Bucolic” is naturalism, a major inspiration within its brand story. Among the breathtaking pieces illustrating the virtuosity of the jeweller is the tiara made up of ears of wheat that appear as though moving in the breeze, and the Mary Stuart aigrette adorned with evanescent feathers. In divine grace.
