Majestic tiaras on show in Monaco

Majestic tiaras on show in Monaco

By Cassandra Tanti - July 8, 2019

Some of the world’s most exceptional tiaras, adorned by queens, princesses and empresses over the past 240 years, will be on show at the Grimaldi Forum Monaco for only six weeks. Luxury Parisian jeweller Chaumet is presenting the unique exhibition to celebrate the opening of its first boutique in Monaco.

‘Chaumet in Majesty – Jewels of Sovereigns since 1780’ will be held from 12th July to 28th August, providing the public with an incredible opportunity to discover exceptional pieces and to appreciate the evolution of this majestic form of jewellery throughout the centuries.

Orchestrated by Stéphane Bern and Christophe Vachaudez, the exhibition will focus on no less than 250 pieces from 15 museums and some 40 private lenders. For the first time in history, the public will be able to see rare pieces, historical creations, exceptional jewellery and jewels under the theme of the tiara, the flagship creation of Chaumet.

The diadem began as a symbol of power, especially under Napoleon, then refined by the Empress Josephine, and changed over time to become a must-have feminine accessory, now crowning the heads of future brides. It is this evolution that will be highlighted during the exhibition.
