Till Present

Our presence in the field of watch and jewellery began in 1960, when Vasilis Bantounas worked as a goldsmith for the first time next to distinguished craftsmen in Tripoli. In 1969 he is professionally self-employed and he creates his first personal lab in Hanjihristou Street. Then, in 1972, the store was moved to a more central point of the town, in Deligianni Street, where a wider and more stable customer base was created.


The store remained there for eleven years, after which it was transferred to 28 Ethnikis Antistaseos (back then, Konstantinou IB) street. So, since 1983 the store is located in the most commercial street in the town, where it operates until today.


In 1996 Nikos Bantounas, son of Vasilis, enters the jewellery industry by studying  jewellery design, manufacture  and diamond grading, continuing the family tradition.


In 2003, on the occasion of the twenty years of the operation of the shop in the same place, we proceeded to renovate it, adopting a new style both in terms of space configuration and choice of jewellery. Traveling in Greece and abroad, attending the most important jewellery-watch exhibitions and looking for the latest fashion trends, we managed to distinguish ourselves, offering the town qualitative and special choices according to its consumers.


Nearly a decade later, in May 2012, we moved to the next door shop, at number 30 in the same street. Our aim, in a larger and better place, is to ideally present the variety of our products, with our main concern being the best service for our customers, since in our new store we offer exclusive shops in shop and we represent as official partners many famous watch and jewellery brands.

Along with the transfer of the store to the new adress, our company is present in the most popular electronic social networks (Facebook, Instagram, Youtube etc.), thus wanting to increase its readability outside the given city limits. in which it developed for many years. Our reach on FB reached tens of thousands of followers within a few years, which gave us great energy and strength to be further active in e-commerce.

In 2015 our site is upgraded from an online corporate identity presence - valid from 2003 - to a fully functional and modern e-shop of jewelry and watches. With a variety of more than 10,000 products, real availability and immediate delivery, we manage to open the door to the market throughout Greece, the most remote and inaccessible islands, but also in many parts of the world, such as America, Canada, Australia and many other countries in Europe and Asia.

Satisfaction, the many positive reviews we receive regularly from many internet users on Google, Skroutz and other platforms for our prompt and friendly service, the careful packaging of our shipments and the continuous updating of the shipping process until the object of choice to reach their hands.

Through this text, we sincerely want to thank the ever-increasing customers of our online store for their preference, trust and dedication to our products. We know that trusting an "impersonal" website is difficult. So, your preference honors us twice.

In December 2021, our company presents its first line of jewelry called "Crescent". A series of jewelry designed by the owner of the business, Mr. Nikos V. Bandouna. Our series was presented to the market with a registered trademark logo, brand and design. It consists of a necklace, earrings, ring and bracelet.

The Crescent series was inspired by the Moon, the eternal companion of the history of the planet we live in, in combination with the shape of the registered trademark logo of our jewelry store BADOUNAS 1969.

The original designs and color variations are available exclusively from our physical and online store and each piece of jewelry is engraved with a unique serial number that indicates its authentic origin.

We hope that the friends of the Crescent jewelry series will enjoy our jewelry collection as much as we enjoyed the journey of their creation from the initial design to their final construction.
