Baguette Cut Diamonds

Yes it's true. This may be unbelieveable to some but there are Diamond shapes named after those famous French breadsticks, or "Baguettes"!

There are two main types of Baguette Cut / Shaped Diamonds - The regular Baguette Cut (sometimes referred to as the Pronounced Baguette), and the Tapered Baguette.

It is very unusual to come across large sized Baguettes; This shape is usually used to accompany and complement other larger Diamonds and Baguettes predominantly play the role of the smaller stones in any given setting.

Baguettes, be it "Pronounced", or "Tapered" have acceptable length to width ratios of 1.5-2.5:1, with the optimum proportions generally considered to be 1.5:1.
