In keeping with its tradition of creating innovative designs Chaumet recently stole the spotlight by unveiling a new exclusive diamond cut, known as the “Taille Imperatrice” in French, meaning the “Empress Cut” in English. The name selected for the cut, pays tribute to Empress Joséphine, Chaumet’s first major distinguished client, who was passionate about nature and botany, and inspired most of Chaumet’s precious naturalistic creations.
