Slender and elegant, the baguette cut is named for the French word that speaks to the lengthy silhouette of the stone. Baguettes rose in popularity during the Art Deco period, according to GIA, for their geometry, eventually becoming a fashionable choice for side stones, but now baguettes have become a focal point in their own right in contemporary designs. Here are five new styles featuring baguette cuts.
