>Chaumet, the Parisian maison that has nearly 240 years of history at its disposal, has always looked to all corners of the globe for inspiration.
From the Japanese-inspired cherry blossom drawings dating from 1925 in its archives, to the tartan-patterned Scottish bow brooch Joseph Chaumet designed for a client in 1907, the house has a grand history of looking outwards. But one place it has never ventured is sub-Saharan Africa, which has inspired the latest high jewellery collection, Tresors D’Afrique.
What’s most interesting about this collection – in some ways extraordinarily contemporary and forward looking – is the path by which the French jeweller took to reach it.
