Solitaire rings that accompany baguette engagement rings have a sparkle and fire all to themselves. With baguette cut stones running down the ring itself, the prisms of light your ring will show can set a room ablaze.
The baguette cut was designed to accent a center stone without taking away any of the brilliance or shine that most have. This is because there are only 14 facets on each baguette stone. The limited cuts are larger to allow more light in, but will never outshine the solitaire. With baguette stones on the ring itself, as your lady turns her finger, the sparkle will have a longer effect in the available light.
The usual baguette stone is cut in a rectangle that could run all the way round the ring, but most stop just half way down. Some jewelers at the beginning of the 20th century played with this particular cut as the center stone. The geometric shape made this possible, but it would take 4 of them to have the same number of facets as a marquise cut stone. But that did not stop the Art Deco inspired jewelry. This cut was perfect. The clean cuts allowed them to be placed side by side to appear as one stone.
For those of you on a tight budget, adding several baguette stones to your engagement ring will allow you to accurately state that the ring is of more carat weight. For some people, including ladies, this is more important than the cut itself.
The baguette engagement rings are beautiful and the stones can be pieced together in an elegant fashion. The symmetric cut can symbolize how your relationship will be smooth and seamless. The baguette engagement ring is the modern choice for the budget conscience.
