The famous Chaumet tiaras, and other jewels, on display in the Principality of Monaco ♦
La Maison Chaumet, one of the great names in jewelery, from 1780 to today has created over 2000 tiaras. For queens, aristocratic families, or simply for women who want to wear a special jewel and, of course, they are lucky enough to have a partner who gives them a tiara or a diadem. In fact, once tiaras were reserved for princesses and queens, while now they are a jewel that can be worn by all women on special occasions, such as marriage. In the art of tiara, they explain to Chaumet, everything starts with a drawing. Over the years, Chaumet’s tiaras have thus interpreted the style of romanticism, naturalism, Belle Époque and Art Déco. Now the Maison boasts 400,000 archive drawings and a Salon des Diadèmes, a showcase of Chaumet’s historical collections.
A heritage that has been traveling the world for a couple of years in an exhibition, which now arrives in the Principality of Monaco, after having passed through Beijing and Tokyo. The exhibition is called Chaumet in Majesty, Jewels of Sovereigns since 1780 and is organized at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco. Who wants to dream, can see up close tiaras exceptional among 250 jewels of sovereigns, some of which exposed for the first time to the public.
