Gathering popularity during the early 20th century, the baguette diamond was birthed from the Art Deco movement. While they are not typically used as center stones, baguette diamonds are seen in a very large portion of rings since they're perfect side stones. They're lightweight with radiant dimensions that reflect the 14 facets of the stone. These are not recognized for their carat weight as they usually are not available over one carat. We offer baguette diamond semi-mount side stones in dozens of unique rings, some of which draw inspiration from the Art Deco period from where this cut originated.
Baguette diamonds are frequently used in rows on the center of a band, with another cut style on each side of them. Halo rings incorporate baguettes quite often. Flanking the center diamond, two of these stones sit atop bands of round cut diamonds. The baguettes are positioned vertically in one halo ring and horizontally in the other. Our specialty Kiosk Collection offers an 18k white gold halo ring that allows its baguette diamonds to maintain the majority of its band, with round stones filling in the exterior and halo. The baguettes are invisible set, resulting in an almost seamless look.
The Art Deco appeal has influenced a few of our rings in this baguette diamond semi-mount side stone collection. By pairing baguette stones with princess diamonds in alternating patterns, a sense of the 20th century modern is evoked. This pattern is featured in a white gold ring whose band cycles three princess cut diamonds and two baguettes thereafter. This 3–2 rotation creates the whole of this gorgeous setting. Another ring's band is even more complex–a row of round diamonds, two baguettes on the far left and right, two larger round diamonds at the sides of the center diamond, and finally, the last row of round stones. The design of the band makes it seem as if the metalwork holding the center stone sprouts out from the side stones. This ring is stacked with drama, even feeling a bit like a modern heirloom!
Baguette diamonds are classic stones that possess an enormous amount of charisma. If you have questions about our baguette diamond semi-mount side stone offerings or would like more information on designing your own custom ring, please contact us and we'd be glad to help.
