    Chaumet: Founded by Etienne Nitot in 1870, the small Parisian firm became famous as jewelers to the aristocracy. Joseph Chaumet, joined the firm by marriage in the mid 1870s, assumed the corporate leadership in 1885, later renaming the firm. Joseph Chaumet’s creativity, and naturalistic approach created romantic jewels catapulting him to the pinnacle of Belle Epoque design where aigrettes and tiaras became the company’s signature items. The firm has remained under the leadership of the Chaumet descendents who maintain an eye for supreme style and quality. Through the 1960s and 1970s, Chaumet's animal and flower jewels were prominent. The firm expanded its market share introducing watch designs that while contemporary carry the same classic lines that make Chaumet one of the most sought after designers. Chaumet operates offices in Paris, New York, and London.
