Chaumet Hortensia Eden

Empress Joséphine, the first wife of Napeleon, was Chaumet’s first major client, and in the more than two centuries since, the esteemed French jewellery house has looked to this important historical figure for the inspiration behind many of its intricate creations.

The Hortensia Eden collection draws on her love of flowers and gardens, expressed through a range of beautiful watches adorned with motifs and materials from nature. Three new additions to the line continue this botanical theme, with subtle floral decorations elegantly brought to life through precious stones and expert craftsmanship.

Two new models in white gold, each bring their own unique personality to the collection; one with a stunning dial set with diamonds, the other with an iridescent opal dial. The trio is completed with a timepiece in pink gold, contrasted with a malachite dial that shines with captivating hues of green.
