Chaumet presents Tiara Dream, the Middle East’s first patrimonial exhibition uncovering the tiara as both a symbol of prestige and a precious fashion accessory – and an eternal link to love.

Tiaras are often the popular choice for family heirlooms in ruling families, mainly for their perpetual opulence and grandeur, and since 1780, French jeweler Chaumet’s tiaras have proven to always stand against the test of decades of fleeting fashion trends, catering to the most glamorous sovereigns, rulers, and emperors. Chaumet’s original muse for much of their designs throughout history, Empress Josephine, wife of French emperor Napoleon, turned constantly to the jewelry house or her beguiling looks. A woman who was as alluring as she was powerful, the empress trusted no one but Chaumet to embody her persona seamlessly.

An emblem of prestige, elegance and timelessness, the House of Chaumet now presents us with Tiara Dream, the Middle East’s first patrimonial exhibition where a collection of tiaras will be available for viewing this month in Riyadh. Under the themes of Immersion, Unity, Power of the Past, Power of Today, Fashion, Eternity, Love, and Virtuosity, each of the dreamy tiaras in the exhibition demand attention towards their wearer, exuding an aura of elegance that will never fade over time. Bringing together elements like white gold, diamonds, and Colombian emeralds, the exhibit will include pieces like the Torsade de Chaumet tiara, the Firmament De Minuit and the Josephine Valse Imperiale this March.

Tiara Dream exhibition will take place at the King Fahad National Library, Riyadh, from March 16 to 26. Free entry; open to the public by reservation.
