Understanding the Baguette Cut

One thing about buying jewelry: it takes some basic knowledge of jewelry lingo to make the right purchase.

Today’s lesson? Understanding the baguette (and no, not of the delicious French bread variety):

Baguettes are side diamonds that frame your center stone and provide an elegant, sophisticated look. They’re called “baguette” because of their slender look. They’re also one of the most popular types of step-cut diamond (other step-cut rings include emerald and asscher cuts).

Baguettes are often seen in vintage style three-stone engagement rings or Art Deco style engagement rings. These styles were all the rage in the 1920s, before the rise of the round brilliant diamond trend.
