Get your Gatsby glam and sparkly headbands ready: it’s time to try a baguette diamond ring.
Baguette diamond rings are elegant and edgy at once, a perfect encapsulation of the 1920’s Art Deco period during which they became popular. The baguette cut diamonds they feature are step-cut and often rectangular — similar to emerald cut diamonds, but with square corners.
Now, to address the obvious: how are these diamonds connected to the French loaf of bread? As it turns out, the gem may have come first; “baguette” comes from the 17th century French word “bague,” which meant “jewel” and today means “ring.” Alternatively, the diamond cut’s name may have been inspired by the long lines of the French bread. Food for thought.
Though they make for popular side stones in engagement rings, baguette diamonds with round diamonds in the corners can also be gorgeous main events:
