Josephine de Beauharnais X Chaumet : gold medal

This week, Chaumet presented the first medal to be engraved on Place Vendôme, reviving a tradition dating back to the old regime. At a time when birth registers were random, medals allowed worried parents to identify their precious children from birth. During the Napoleonic period when Chaumet was the appointed jeweler, this identity function of the jewel was forgotten as they became known for more decorative purposes. Ideal for evoking the bond that unites us with those who are close to us, this medal is the modern marker of historical values.
