Chaumet will be bringing 19 pieces from the Chaumet est une fête high jewellery collection, which draws on its long heritage of skilled craftsmanship and features exceptional diamonds, gemstones and pearls. 


The central ruby in the Aria Passionata ring weighs 6.02 carats and is from Mozambique

These include the Aria Passionata jewels, inspired by the passionate Italian operas of Milan’s La Scala with flaming red rubies and garnets set in pink gold. Highlights include a transformable necklace with a detachable brooch and a ring set with a 6.02-carat ruby from Mozambique that boasts the rare and highly desirable “Pigeon Blood” red colour.

Meanwhile the Valses d’Hiver pieces instead look to the Vienna Opera, with its light waltzes embodied by sparkling pure diamonds and cultured pearl accents.

Two other Chaumet sets will also see their worldwide exclusive debut in Dubai next week that have only just been released from the atelier. The Josephine Aigrette Imperiale Fine Pearls set will feature a tiara, necklace, ring and pair of earrings and hosts rare historic natural pearls owned by the Maison.

These pearls are most likely originally from the Gulf itself and nod to Chaumet’s history as Europe’s main pearl dealer in the 20th century; founder Joseph Chaumet famously refused to use cultured pearls and they were only included in designs from the 1980s onwards.

The second set is the unique Josephine Aigrette Imperiale necklace, which is mounted with an exceptional 8.29-carat pear-cut diamond with internally flawless clarity and a top D colour grade.

The jewels will be revealed at next week’s events before going on display at the Chaumet boutique in The Dubai Mall for just a few weeks afterwards.
