Vintage 18k Yellow Gold Diamond Bow Brooch Pin. Parisian jewelry house Chaumet

One of the oldest, Parisian jewelry house Chaumet celebrates its 240th anniversary in 2020. Having begun its history in 1780, Chaumet became famous for its unique works for the court of Napoleon. Oriental-style products were made there using carved precious and semiprecious stones. In particular, jardiniere brooches with carved rubies, emeralds and sapphires, cosmetic cases with floral patterns in lapis lazuli and coral, etc. Discreet, strictly geometric jewelry, studded with diamonds and decorated with colored stones, were also present in their collections.
The founder of Chaumet House, Marie-Étienne Nitot, studied with the then-famous Aubert, jeweler of Marie Antoinette. In 1789, he opened his own store and attracted the attention of the French aristocracy. Soon, Nito becomes Napoleon’s personal jeweler and, by order of the emperor, creates a consular sword adorned with the famous Regent diamond.
Nito works with his son. The jewelry created by them – imbued with the spirit of magnificent luxury and symbolism of power. For the coronation of the emperor Napoleon, the jeweler made imperial regalia, an imperial sword, an imperial crown and a diadem.
