Chaumet – Hôtel Baudard de Sainte-James
12 Vendôme is the heart and soul of Chaumet; a bastion of both French history and High jewelry savoir-faire. The very first jeweler to establish a presence in the mythical Place Vendôme, Chaumet recently marked 240 years of excellence with an extensive renovation of its hôtel particulier, symbolizing a new vision for the brand with a focus on heritage, virtuosity and its cherished customers. The building itself radiates luxury, elegance and history – it is home to both the Salon Chopin (now listed as an historic monument, where the composer completed his Mazurka Opus 68 n°4 in 1849) and the Salon des Diadèmes – a priceless collection of 264 nickel silver models, preserving the history of Chaumet’s artistry and virtuosity. A place where power and luxury rub shoulders with Art de Vivre and culture, the Hôtel Baudard de Sainte-James embodies the majestic elegance of the French capital.
