Chaumet: Tiaras
Hardcover - English

Founded in 1780 in Paris, Chaumet became the most prestigious and sought-after jeweler in Europe after being named the official jeweler to Napoleon's wife, Empress Jos phine. Known for dazzling craftmanship, Chaumet specialized in tiaras. These social symbols and fashion accessories have been popular throughout the centuries, from historical tiaras created for royalty to modern art deco pieces designed for wealthy 1920s flappers. The rarely viewed tiaras illustrated in this book are presented in thematic sections, such as "Nature," "Skies," "Graphic Lines," "Architecture," and "Power." They are introduced by two short essays--one from V&A jewelry curator Clare Phillips; the other from fashion expert Natasha Fraser- Cavassoni--examining the history of tiaras and the role they play in fashion.

Featuring over two hundred illustrations, including specially commissioned photographs, Chaumet is a stunning tribute to an enduring symbol of style and power.
