After spotlighting its affinity with literary personalities, Chaumet explores the influence of flora and fauna on its jewelry creations in a new exhibition entitled “Dess(e)in de nature”. The exhibition runs until June 15 at the Chaumet 165 cultural space.
Chaumet has celebrated the beauty of nature in its jewelry creations ever since the founding of the Maison in 1780, inventing a representation of the living world that transcends technique to elevate the sublime character of precious stones and the grace of jewelry pieces.
The exhibition “Dess(e)in de nature” was first presented during the 28th Salon du Dessin at the Palais Brongniart in Paris. The exhibition recounts Chaumet’s artistic journey through a selection of a hundred drawings from the 1830s to the early 20th century.
The exhibition has now been brought to the Chaumet cultural space at 165 boulevard Saint-Germain in Paris. From initial studies by the Maison’s jewelers that evoke botanical plates to the final creations, Chaumet reveals the steps in its secret bejeweled herbarium, where precious stones bloom.
Visitors are invited to explore nature as they stroll through a jeweled garden where exquisite creativity is joined by the art of storytelling. “Dess(e)in de nature” ends on June 15 and will open again from July 24 to September 14.
