The jewels shaping up to be your best sellers
Finally, it’s hip to be square. Well, maybe more like rectangular. If you threw an arrow into a crowd of modern jewels, odds are you’d hit one with baguettes. With more visual interest than a line of round brilliants, the baguettes aren’t merely used as accent, rather, more as a centerpiece. The sleek, slim profile answers the call for the simple, slightly architectural cravings the market has been rife with as of late. Though most of the jewels featured here are diamonds, it’s also lovely to see the look in a colored gemstone (you’ll find some of those below, too). Here are some recent favorites.
