Paris has been renowned for the quality and creativity of its jewellery artisans for over five centuries. Serving the notable figures of the time period including Napoleon’s marriage to Joséphine, then to Marie-Louise of Habsburg-Lorraine, Queen Marie-Antoinette’s great-niece, meant some sumptuous commissions for Chaumet. Nitot became the most sought-after jeweller in Europe and established a loyal and prestigious clientele and the official jeweller of Napoleon. A creative and innovative man, Nitot passed on his attention to quality and originality to his successors.
