12 July – 28 August 2019
CHAUMET AND MAJESTY EXHIBITION
The Jewels of Sovereigns Since 1780
Presale tickets at €6 until 30 June 2018
From July 12 to August 28, 2019, Chaumet will present at the Grimaldi Forum an exhibition devoted to the art of the diadem, this cult jewel, a symbol of power and sovereignty that has become the symbol of the sublimation of femininity.
Placed under the high patronage of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II, this event will highlight outstanding women, empresses, queens and princesses of the European courts, as well as the jewels created for them by Chaumet for 240 years.
The curation was placed under the responsibility of Stéphane Bern, a media personality, journalist and writer, along with Christophe Vachaudez, a jewel historian, both specialists in the Royal Courts.
Separated into six major themes, the exhibition will take you on a journey into the heart of the creation and symbolism of head jewelry.
Based around Chaumet’s rich heritage collections, but also on the generous participation of prestigious museums, great European families and many private collections, this unique exhibition will be a hymn to the splendor of Parisian jewelry from the 18th century to the present day.
