Gouaches of tiaras, Chaumet at the Salon du dessin

In the 1980s, Chaumet became one of the first jewelry houses to showcase its own brand heritage. The brand now boasts an extremely rich collection of jewelry, glass plates, order books, invoices and some 80,000 drawings, covering more than two hundred years of history. Thirty-eight of these, based on its favourite theme – the tiara – will be exhibited at the Salon du dessin. A chance to explore the brand’s prestigious clients and its changing styles from the Empire to the present day.
