Chaumet was founded by Marie-Étienne Nitot in Paris in 1780. Nitot had the most impressive CV in the business; after training as an apprentice to the court jeweller of Marie Antoinette, he became the official jeweller of Emperor Napoleon. On establishing Chaumet, Nitot retained his royal clients, and so his brand was the most exclusive jeweller and eventually watchmaker in Paris. In 2012, after a few difficult decades, it was taken over by luxury powerhouse LVMH.
