Diamond Baguette Necklace (Yellow Gold)

$325.00
About Details Inspiration
The step (or "baguette") cut accentuates a diamond's luster, whiteness and clarity while downplaying its rainbow fire. Their crisp, clean lines made them all the rage during the Art Deco period, where they were most often seen surrounding a larger stone to draw attention inward. We think they deserve to stand alone: this understated necklace shows off a diamond baguette's best qualities.

I assumed the baguette cut was named after the elongated French bread shape, but that's not true. The word baguette wasn't used to describe bread prior to 1900, but the word bague has been in use for centuries. In high school, I learned it as the word for "finger ring". However, until the seventeenth century the term was used to indicate jewels in general. Therefore the diminutive 'baguette' is translated as 'small jewel'.
