Epoque Fine Jewels

Chaumet
Art Deco diamond tiara
Old mine cut, rose cut and single cut diamonds, mounted in platinum and gold. Millegrain setting
Paris, 1909
Exhibition: ‘Chaumet en Majesté. Joyaux de souverains depuis 1780’, Grimaldi Forum, Monaco, 12 July-28 August 2019
Since its foundation in 1780, Chaumet has created over 3500 unique tiaras. This tiara was made in 1909 as a wedding tiara for the daughter of Count and Countess de Heeren. Although most tiaras from that period were still made in the Garland style or the traditional 19th century style with floral and scroll motifs, this particular piece announces the more geometrical style of the Art Deco period which reached its peak in the 1920s
