Josephine: a tribute to the history of Chaumet


The Josephine Collection is dedicated to Empress Josephine de Beauharnais, the first muse and customer of Chaumet. Thirty exquisite pieces of jewelry revisit the diadem, the favorite headpiece of this audacious woman: necklaces, earrings, rings and bracelets are embellished with gold lace and a shower of diamonds.

The diadem is transformed into a ring to crown the finger, while twelve platinum pieces reinterpret the tiara, the crown, the aigrette and the headband. Two diadems set with white and yellow pear diamonds and engraved with Napoleon Bonaparte's messages of love to his wife complete this dazzling Chaumet collection.
