Chaumet - Laurier Precious Jewellery collection

January 2019

The Laurier Precious Jewellery collection celebrates the symbolic plant that has been a continuous presence in the Maison’s creations.

Reinterpreted in diamonds and white gold, this glorious laurel serves to magnify contemporary femininity. A symbol of immortality beloved of Joséphine, and an allegory of victory and power adopted by Napoléon, laurel also evokes a tribute to Apollo and Daphne. At Chaumet, it glorifies femininity.

Like its recent interpretations in the High Jewellery collection La Nature de Chaumet, Laurier, in a burst of movement, twists and comes alive as an expression of wild, luxuriant and sophisticated nature. Each piece exquisitely expresses the jewellery virtuosity of Chaumet: asymmetrical compositions, leaves sculpted in volume and in several different designs the mises à jour on the reverse of the motifs have been executed in three different ways... each detail an expression of the Maison’s great High Jewellery tradition.
