Exhibition: Chaumet in Majesty
An exhibition by the Maison Chaumet, entitled "Chaumet in Majesty", which is on display at the Grimaldi Forum, has just been opened by H.S.H. Prince Albert II, in the presence of several celebrities, including the actress Natalie Portman. Nearly 250 treasures from the Maison Chaumet are on display at the exhibition. Some of these rare pieces were unveiled to the public for the first time. The jewellery and other historical objects are from fifteen prestigious museums and forty or so private lenders. To tell us the story of these legendary items, Stéphane Bern and Christophe Vachaudez, who are eminent specialists on the sovereign houses, came to the Principality for the occasion. The star item, which is highlighted throughout the exhibition, is the tiara.
