Founded in 1780 by Marie-Etienne Nitot, the house will soon meet success by being apppointed by Napoléon I and his wife Joséphine. Jean-Baptiste Fossin and Prosper Morel managed it. In 1885, Joseph Chaumet married Marie Morel and took the lead. He decided to settle both workshop and boutique at 12 place Vendôme and the Company will then never move. Specialising in tiaras, Chaumet will extend its range of products, being inspired by Japonese art, Art déco and New Look. Still designed and produced Place Vendôme, the collections show an exceptional know-how and reflect Parisian chic. A sum of collections and extraordinary pieces being kept, since 1980 , in the House muséum, Place Vendôme, open to visitors during events and exhibitions regularly organised by the Maison. Chaumet brother's bankruptcy brings the brand to Investcorp, an investment fund from Bahrein, in 1988, and the company becomes a subsidiary of LVMH in 1999.
