What Is A Baguette Diamond?

The History of Baguette Diamonds

Baguette diamonds have been around for more than a century. The baguette diamond was created in the 1920s during the Art Deco movement, a time when tastes were shifting away from conventionally cut diamonds. The jewelry industry was accepting and fast to adopt because it signaled a departure from traditional round-cut stones.

What To Look Out for When Buying a Baguette Diamond

1. Cut

Fewer facets mean that the flaws in a baguette diamond can be noticed more quickly than in other cuts. To guarantee that defects are not readily apparent, each facet's cut has to be precise.

2. Color

Baguettes come in a variety of colors. To make sure that the color of the baguette diamonds matches the color of the center stone, choose a baguette with a color grade that is higher than that of the center stone.

3. Clarity

Baguette diamonds have varying degrees of clarity. When choosing a baguette diamond, go for one with a clarity grade higher than that of a typical round diamond to ensure there are no obvious flaws in your piece of jewelry.

4. Carat Weight

Baguette diamonds have lesser-carat weights. They are usually less than one-carat cuts.

  • Baguette diamonds enhance the center stone's brilliance without drawing attention away from it.
