You’d probably know Chaumet as the French jewellery house famous for its tiaras. You might also know it for its obsession with the bee motifs and hydrangeas.
A newly released box set by Assouline charts the legacy of the brand in three volumes. Priced at US$75 (S$101) at www.assouline.com, the set sheds light on the themes that Chaumet is famed for – its provenance in Place Vendome, its trademark tiara designs and inspirations with nature – in an easy to read format.
Penned by a Le Figaro journalist, a jewellery historian and a Vanity Fair contributor/publishing house founder, the books are a great read for any jewellery fiend. Here, we uncover some of the interesting trivia from the collection.
