Description

An homage to the royal tiara, the crowning diadem of beauty and power.

Chaumet has been crafting exceptional royal jewelry for more than two hundred years. The tiara--a symbol of power and sovereignty turned emblem of love and marriage--is the ultimate expression of the jeweler's masterful artistry and creativity. Today, the tiara evokes festive celebrations and radiant femininity, and it has become an indispensable accessory for royals, celebrities, and women of note.

Drawing on pieces of jewelry and works of art from Chaumet's heritage collections, prestigious museums, private collections, and royal courts, this book brings together many of their most spectacular jewels.

This volume retraces the history of the beloved tiara, highlighting the deep admiration it has garnered as the precious jewels have been transmitted and transformed over generations. The text reveals the symbolism of the tiara, the artistic inspirations behind the creations, and the unique metaphorical repertoire employed by Chaumet. An ode to royal jewelry from the eighteenth century to the present, this elegant and precious book is a veritable reference for specialists and jewelry aficionados alike.
