Founded in 2008 within the diamond capital of the world, Antwerp, Baunat Group emerged as a disruptive force in the luxury diamond industry. Conceived by two diamond industry veterans, Stefaan Mouradian and Steven Boelens. Their shared vision was to revolutionize the diamond and jewellery industry through bypassing layers of the supply chain to undercut conventional luxury diamond retailers in price. This allowed them to offer luxury diamond jewellery at unparalleled prices, accompanied with excellent customer service. 

Our founders

Both Stefaan Mouradian and Steven Boelens possess outstanding expertise in the international diamond and jewellery industry. Their knowledge is rooted in generations of accumulated and transferred wisdom. Alongside them, a passionate team of dedicated employees, reliable suppliers, and valued business partners work hand-in-hand to uphold the company’s vision and commitment to excellence. Together, they continue to shape the future of the luxury diamond industry with ingenuity and precision.
