What is a Baguette Diamond?

A Baguette can be used in a wide variety of jewelry. They are mainly used as accent stone or side stone in diamond jewelry especially diamond rings. Baguettes particularly enhance diamond engagement rings, diamond earrings and diamond bracelets. The geometrical shape gives the jewelry a unique look, different from the usual smooth, oval and round diamonds. The diamonds resemble the shape of a baguette.

Baguettes are long and rectangular, and its corners are octagonal. They are less brilliant than a round diamond. This means that the color difference comes out strongly with these diamonds, and it is preferable to go for the colorless grade. Lack of brilliance means lack of clarity. Clarity in baguette stones are therefore less as compared to other diamonds. This means that inclusions and flaws are more visible.
