When Napoleon Bonaparte chose to bestow his love Joséphine (and subsequently, his second wife Empress Marie Louise de Habsburg-Lorraine) with the most exquisite jewelry, also acting as a symbol of France’s power and exuberance, he turned to the House of Chaumet. Founded in 1780 by Marie-Étienne Nitot, Nitot was Napoleon’s personal jeweler, designing for him emboldened, sentimental, and powerful pieces, from jeweled necklaces, to diamond crowns, to Napoleon’s consular sword, built with the famous Regent diamond (a whopping 140 carats) currently on display at the Louvre museum. Today, in addition to regal jewelry, the high-end jeweler also designs a breathtaking collection of watches that would have surely made Joséphine smile. The Lien de Chaumet collection of women’s watches is gracefully simple and perfectly feminine.
