Renowned high-end jeweller based in Paris, Chaumet, is showcasing the Joséphine Valse Impériale at the Doha Jewellery and Watches Exhibition (DJWE).
In a delicate waltz, the Joséphine Valse Impériale's pear-shaped diamonds emphasise the elevated sweep of the tiara. The signature Chaumet fil-couteau technique enables the metal of this High Jewellery piece to optically disappear in order to let the seemingly suspended stones shine.
An interpretation of Empress Joséphine's sophisticated allure, the Joséphine Valse Impériale High Jewellery set combines timeless elegance with a couture spirit. First major client and muse of the Maison, Joséphine was a true fashion icon who epitomised the splendour of the French imperial court.
Chaumet also presents the Lacis High Jewellery set – unique pieces presented for the first time ever in the Middle East.
Recalling the stone latticework and mashrabiyas of contemporary architecture, with its white gold interlacing Lacis delineates symmetrical and delicate jewellery while also suggesting maze of narrow streets. This modern reinterpretation of diamond mesh, an historic Chaumet signature, is especially striking in the form of necklace, earrings, and bracelets with airy volumes.
In each piece, a subtle interplay of light and transparency is orchestrated by the crossing of fils couteau mountings, an iconic virtuosity of the Maison which seems to render the metal structure invisible in order to let the stones sparkle.
The Haute Horlogerie watch Infiniment 12 – Reverie Nocturne from Chaumet, combines the Maison’s centuries-old jewellery virtuosity and watchmaking precision. A virtuoso tribute to the Maison's 240th anniversary and the reopening of the 12 Place Vendôme hôtel particulier.
