Chaumet, Dubai Mall, Dubai

I have never noticed this brands store at home in London before as it just seems to just blend in this all of the jewellers along Bond St. However, this one screams to be looked at. Here in the Mall of Dubai, one could hardly not notice it with its beautifully lit frontage. Having been drawn in to take a closer look, it transpires that this is actually quite an old Parisian brand dating from 1780 founded by Marie-Etienne Nitot . It also has quite an interesting history of corruption too according to the information I can find out about it which led to bankruptcy during the mid 1980's. However, Chaumet was bought by LVMH in 1999 it became profitable again. Although it is very unlikely that I would ever buy anything here the merchandise is very beautiful as is the store itself and if only for that do go and take a look.
