Chaumet launches the Joséphine Aigrette collection

NOW, more than ever, is the time of women and to celebrate women. For their latest collection, French haute jeweller Chaumet returns to their original muse, Joséphine, and celebrates her, not for being the wife of Emperor Napolean, but for the woman she was and the ideals she embodied.

Joséphine lived an exciting life: she was captured during the Revolution, separated from her first husband, widowed, the Empress of France, a divorcee, a loving mother and a celebrated botanist. Born in the island of Martinique, the sea was a part of her life and she possessed a love of all things maritime. Taking her love of the sea, Chaumet has transposed it into the collection through the inclusion of iridescent pearl detailing.

Joséphine was also well-known for being a trendsetter and fashion icon of the time. Her wardrobe was a melange of vibrant and delicate hues, and she had a wide array of accessories which she would layer and stack depending on the circumstance.

Emulating Joséphine’s style and still appealing to the modern woman who demands versatility and flexibility, the rings from this collection are stackable and can be worn in the multitude of ways. Earrings too, come as singles, to align with the contemporary trend of single or mismatched earrings. Available in amethyst, citrine, peridot, aquamarine and rhodolite garnet, the rings and earrings recall the colourful palette of her wardrobe and are shaped like her tiara.

Above all, this is a collection that celebrates love – Joséphine’s love of the sea, of colour, of her family. Chaumet’s Joséphine Aigrette collection pays homage to an outstanding woman, her life and the values she held dear. Become just like the powerful and elegant woman she was by wearing a piece of Chaumet’s collection.
