Hoop earrings large and small
The creoles from BAUNAT are a stylish version to wear every day. With the incorporated diamonds, you still get that unique look from the catwalk.
Link and chain jewellery
We are also fans of chains here at BAUNAT. For instance, we have a necklace with a matching chain bracelet. This chain ring would also suit this trend very well.
In particular, BAUNAT offers magnificent halo style engagement rings, handmade from the finest precious metals, and excellent value for money.
You can go in different directions with colour. What is especially apparent is bright colours for a bohemian look and somewhat more pastel colours in jewellery with a baroque appearance.
At BAUNAT you can easily add colours by playing with different precious metals and coloured diamonds.
How do I mix and match my rings? Naturally, there are many possibilities, depending on personal style, but it is best to follow certain principles so as not to overdo it.
Different earrings or 1 earring
It's a trend that's a little more difficult to combine, but if you stick to subtle earrings, it shouldn't be a problem.
In that vein, BAUNAT works with several local designers who have made beautiful collections, such as the Dancing Lady, Nathu or Le Paradis collections. So you can always choose from unique design pieces to complement your jewellery collection.
You can also combine different jewels to create new unique looks. Think of stacking rings, for example. These rings have become a real trend. They are made to be worn together and can therefore also be mixed and matched accordingly. They are rings with different patterns and structures. By making different combinations, you can in principle create a new look every day. It is not just stacking rings that can be combined. Necklaces or bracelets are also perfect for combining.
Some important innovations in the jewellery sector:
- Rings made entirely of diamond
- 3D printing of jewellery
- New ways of cutting diamonds
- New research into the origin of diamonds
A ring made entirely of diamond
Making the ring was an enormous challenge. It took a year and required a special piece of laser equipment. The price of this ring therefore comes in at no less than €52 million.
This is not the only ring made entirely of diamond. Later, more designers who wanted to take on the same challenge followed suit, such as Jony Ive, designer at Apple.
3D printing of jewellery
3D printing is still in its infancy. Besides it being a solid investment for jewellers, the craftsmanship of jewellers themselves is still required to manually refine and perfect the designs.
New ways of cutting
There is less loss and diamonds can be cut more efficiently.
Of course, diamond cutters will never be obsolete. A diamond cutter has insight and expertise and will therefore always have the last word when cutting the perfect diamond.
Research into diamond
Of course, these diamonds will never replace natural diamonds. Natural diamonds are only becoming more valuable. Their scarcity makes them just as precious. This makes the natural diamond an excellent investment.

Do a lot of people purchase diamond jewellery online?
The very first e-commerce websites for diamond jewellery were launched about ten years ago. Nowadays, there are a lot of diamond jewellery e-commerce businesses; altogether they form the fastest growing category in the sector. Blue Nile - the pioneer (www.bluenile.com) – alone generates around $ 300 million a year. Depending on the sources, the worldwide jewellery e-commerce sales reaches about 4 to 5 billion US dollar (on a total of 75-80 billion US dollar). E.g. in 2009 (economically a very difficult year) the sub segment jewellery e-commerce sales displayed a growth, and even a fairly more significant growth than other e-commerce industries, this due to the upwards movement in the diamond jewellery industry. This trend is also occurring in all the important consumer markets (Europe, Middle East, Japan, Russia, China, India and Brazil).
This trend has been confirmed the last couple of years, and all studies anticipate a further growth in the jewellery e-commerce industry, as opposed to classic (bricks and mortar) jewellers (such as Cartier, Tiffany & Co, Boucheron, De Beers, Van Cleef & Arpels, Chopard, Piaget, Bulgari,…). It is vital to know that this trend persists in Europe, as several American websites (www.jamesallen.com, www.ice.com, www.bluenile.com, www.thediamondstore.co.uk,...) also gravitate towards the European continent, furthermore numerous European diamond jewellery e-shop are being established.
At the moment, BAUNAT is the only online diamond jewellery brand, that well considered, offers all her diamond jewellery and collections (at her multilingual e-boutique www.baunat.com) without middlemen or retail points (with the exception of our showrooms).
