In a symphony of nature and gemstones, Chaumet has crafted a collection that embodies its two-century-long love affair with the natural world. The maison’s Le Jardin de Chaumet high-jewelry collection is a poetic narrative, celebrating the beauty and nuances of the natural world through the prism of high jewelry. Conceived in four chapters, the collection transports its admirers on a sparkling journey, meandering through nature’s lush undergrowth, reveling in the blossoms, and stepping out into the fields. With a nod to Chaumet’s heritage, its jewelers have cultivated a garden of worldwide species, combining landscapes and seasons, resulting in a collection that invites the imagination to wander through its tantalizing bouquets.

The profound imprint of Chaumet’s founder, Marie-Étienne Nitot, rings clear in this collection. The maison, since its establishment in 1780, has held an intimate connection with nature, encapsulated in Nitot’s self-identification as a “naturalist jeweler”. This foundation infuses each piece in the Le Jardin de Chaumet collection with a visual poetry that has become synonymous with the house’s identity. Comprising 68 designs, the collection challenges traditional norms by grounding flora within the elegant realms of high jewelry. Selected for their emotive resonance, the stones embellishing these parures enhance their natural allure with large-facet French cuts, while some diamonds showcase the maison’s heritage through an 8/8 cut, tracing back to the brilliant cut’s ancestor. The collection pays tribute to the brand’s innovation, sculpting gold into lace-like petals, experimenting with audacious settings, and devising ingeniously concealed clasps.

Chaumet’s‘Le Jardin de Chaumet collection paints a vibrant tapestry of nature’s majesty and diversity, evoking realism with a delicate touch. This enchanting journey encapsulates the symbolism of mistletoe in seven exquisite pieces, captures the luminescence of fern leaves in eight designs, reproduces the texture of precious woods in four pieces, and celebrates the iconic wheat and vine fields in five and four pieces respectively. Each parure in the collection is steeped in history and inspired by nature, showcasing exceptional stones, from a 21.59-carat Colombian emerald to a rare 50.61-carat black Australian opal, and imbuing every piece with an air of modernity. As a nod to the contemporary desires of its clientele, many pieces are designed to be worn in a variety of ways, offering a testament to Chaumet’s ability to adapt its centuries-old savoir-faire to the current era. Whether you are captivated by the power of the mistletoe or enchanted by the vibrant fields of wheat and vine, Le Jardin de Chaumet is a homage to nature's beauty and a celebration of Chaumet’s enduring craftsmanship.
