Baguette diamonds are known for their unique silhouette that stands out from the rest of the diamond ring cuts. In this type of stone, you can see flat facets and shallow cuts that create a mirror-like reflection rather than a scintillating brilliance.
The craftsmen designed the stone in such a way since people during the olden time used to propose to their better half during a candlelight dinner. The cuts in baguette are perfect to capture the candlelight, and thereby, exhibit an alluring diamond under the warm light.
Usually, baguette stones were used as accents in vintage diamond rings because of its ability to highlight the center diamond without distracting the attention of viewers. However, modern brides love to flaunt it as their main gemstone too, so that they can stand out from the crowd.
