No expensive marketing campaigns, luxurious offices and retail outlets. Our investment will be immediately seen in the BAUNAT diamond jewellery.
BAUNAT is based in Antwerp, renowned since 1447 as world centre of the diamond trade. Over half of the world's diamond trade takes place in Antwerp. The families behind BAUNAT have selected their diamonds directly from the best suppliers of the world since over 100 years.
BAUNAT buys its diamonds directly from the source, and sells its exquisite diamond jewellery collection online and in its offices to the client.Thanks to stockholders amongst the largest diamond dealers, Baunat can buy directly and at excellent value its stones from the most important diamond stocks.
Direct buying and selling, avoiding the middleman, combined with a strict stock management, allows BAUNAT to offer the best and largest selection at the best price-quality ratio.
And last but not least: as more than 90% of our clients buy online (via our 7-lingual E-boutique, where clients can pay in 4 currencies and via a large variety of payment methods), we are able to handle very cost efficiently a fast growing customer base across the world (today BAUNAT sells to more than 50 countries), without having to invest in a large contingent of luxurious retail outlets and corresponding overheads. And this enables us to propose also this same exceptional price-quality to clients who choose to visit us in our showrooms in Antwerp, Paris & Geneva.
In short, BAUNAT promises its clients that its prices are in close correlation with the intrinsic cost of the underlying components & used material of the products on offer.
Antwerp is home to the finest and most talented craftsmen in the diamond industry. The mastery of the craft is passed on from father to son. The experience, passion and skills in the Antwerp diamond district are incomparable to any other city in the world. Therefore, it needs no further explanation as to why BAUNAT chooses to create its fine diamond jewellery and high quality engagement rings by hand in the city of diamonds.
Local production enables us to closely oversee and efficiently organize the production of our diamond jewellery. This is a prerequisite for BAUNAT, as we offer very fast deliveries. Our entire team works in close cooperation and is focused on delivering high quality jewellery worthy of the city of Antwerp and the exceptional BAUNAT quality standard.
Every piece of jewellery carries the unique Responsibility Mark, a legally-recognised quality guarantee which allows international identification. The Responsibility Mark was granted to BAUNAT by the Royal Belgian Mint. Every purchase is accompanied by a 'BAUNAT jewel certificate', which stands for the quality of your jewel's design, material and manufacture.
Finally, BAUNAT gives all its customers a 20 year guarantee against hidden flaws in its jewellery.
BAUNAT only works with 18 carat gold (75% gold – alloy 'Au750') and platinum 950 (95% platinum – alloy 'Pt950').
BAUNAT only offers 100% natural diamonds. This means no treated, artificial or clarity intensified diamonds.

In very few cases, the jewel or loose diamond is in stock in the showroom, and can be taken immediately with you after we have received your payment.
