Chaumet is a French luxury jewellery and watch company founded in 1780 by Marie-Etienne Nitot.
The history of Chaumet has been entwined with the History of France ever since its founding in 1780, in Paris. Indeed, the Maison very quickly became the official jeweller to Empress Josephine. The High Jewellery savoir-faire of the Maison has been passed down through generations of jewellers for 235 years.
Crafted at the very heart of the place Vendôme, the jewellery and watchmaking creations reflect these exceptional skills and pay tribute to the Parisian style. The townhouse and its 18th century salon, 12, place Vendôme incorporates the flagship Boutique, the historic Salons, the Creative Studio and the High Jewellery workshop where tomorrow’s sentimental jewels are imagined and crafted with bold creativity.
Chaumet has been part of the LVMH Group since 1999 and has expanded to 70 stores around the world. In accordance with the Kimberley process and as a member of the RJC, Chaumet pays the utmost attention to the sourcing of its raw materials.
