The Baguette Cut is named due to its long rectangular shape after the French word ‘baguette’. This cut came out of the Art Deco movement of the 1920’s and 30’s, its geometric form widely popularised by the design and architecture of the period.
Unlike round diamonds, the shape of the Baguette allows them to be set side-by-side without gaps. The effect of this unbroken display of diamonds creates the startlingly beautiful invisible setting.
