Open until November 2nd, the exhibition Autrement by Chaumet showcases the beauty of jewelry through a dialogue between art and fashion, history and trends in the form of a stylish voyage starting at the beginnings of the house in 1780. You’ll be able to see archival drawings and photographs, confronting them to our modern world and its ever-changing means of production and design. Ancient techniques are being digitalized and photographs by Julia Hetta have been presented in historical frames dating back to the 15th and 19th century lent by Maison Lebrun. Old and new unite in the Chaumet Saint-Germain store.

Hetta produced a series of photographs directly inspired by the Dutch masters and Renaissance paintings where historical pieces of jewelry are worn in unconventional ways, demonstrating the versatilities of the collections. Certain necklaces become headbands while sautoirs are worn as shoulder straps or anklets. Jewelry, far away from conforming to trends, is meant to be reinvented and kept for decades as a precious testament of long gone eras.
