I was initially attracted to the look of baguette gemstones all set together when I encountered JCK Rising Star Ralph Masri (the fabulous Jane Taylor is known for using baguettes, too). Well, I guess I love the look, because I’ve really been searching for it, keeping an eye out for it in a way I never did before (kind of like those trillion cuts!). It’s sort of like a mosaic, in which a collection of smaller pieces creates an eye-catching, overall look with sensational results. I’m drawn to the minimalist design of a single line of baguettes, but the other creations made in all shapes and sizes continually amaze me. Here are some recent favorites.
