Book Review: Chaumet 3-Volume Slipcase Set – Chaumet, established in 1780, is one of the crown jewels of Place Vendôme, the epicenter of the world of Parisian fine jewelry. Following the French Revolution, Marie-Étienne Nitot and then his son, François-Regnault, became official jewelers to Napoléon I and Empress Joséphine, thus founding the business that grew into the luxury brand known today as Chaumet. In 1812 Nitot fils acquired an hôtel particulier on Place Vendôme, becoming the first fine jeweler on the square.
