Baguette diamonds made their debut  in the 1920’s during the Art Deco era and are very popular in diamond jewelry to this very day. The baguette cut is a dazzling diamond cut that is unique in its beauty.

Here’s a picture of a Loose Baguette Diamond

Baguettes are [usually] rectangular, step-cut diamonds with straight or tapered edges. Baguette diamonds usually add dazzle and an extra spark to many kinds of jewelry pieces, and in this case, they’re the main stones of dazzling tennis bracelets.


Why should I buy a baguette diamond bracelet?

First of all, just having the delicious name of a baguette cut should be enough, a baguette diamond could be your spirit animal!

Second of all, they’re unique. Everyone is walking around with the classic round diamonds in their tennis bracelets…

You’re not like everyone else, you’re different and special (I’m sure your mom agrees with this) and you deserve something that’s unique.

Finally, just look at this beauty!

She can be all yours.

Very cool. But what about baguette diamond colors? How should they match with the color of the bracelet band?

Here, let me explain: Let’s go back to the tennis bracelet shown above. It’s adorned with excellent quality baguette diamonds that are nearly colorless (in GIA’s G-H color range). Since the diamonds are nearly colorless, white gold (or platinum) bands are recommended to showcase the excellent colorless features of the diamonds. If the diamonds are fancy-yellow (image of a natural fancy-yellow diamond from our website) a yellow gold colored band would be preferred as it helps to enhance their natural fancy-yellow color.


What about clarity? Is there anything I should know regarding the clarity for my baguette diamonds?

That’s actually the million-dollar question!

Choosing the right clarity is very important for all diamonds but baguette diamonds have a special attribute that makes clarity oh-so-special!

You see, baguette-cut diamonds are usually made with 14 facets and come in smaller carat weights than other cuts. Like other step cuts, the baguette cuts lack the brilliance of round-cut diamonds which can conceal inclusions, therefore flaws in these diamonds are easier to be seen. We recommend that you choose baguette diamonds that have a high clarity grade.

You don’t need to go for the highest clarity, but you should at least ensure that the stones are eye clean, meaning, that it doesn’t have inclusions that are visible with the naked eye.


After all that’s said and done, baguette diamonds are awesome and so are you – so treat yo’self.


Here is a quote by Lauren Conrad that helps prove my point:

Diamond Baguette Best Friend

A baguette bracelet is a girl’s best friend… but I’m just paraphrasing!

Real Just Became Rare

Diamonds Expose Their Real Value

 A Real Relationship

A Real Diamond Relationship

The latest advertising campaign just launched by The Diamond Producers Association

 has switched the diamond from being Forever to being Rare



It was always real, that is to say relationships, but the reality of relationships has changed. A relationship used to mean an eventual marriage that was intended as a lifelong commitment, it meant functioning together, giving and building a relationship that was based on finding love through working together with a common goal and it was never expressed better than a real natural diamond.

Today relationships are still real, perhaps frighteningly more so but they mean a common empathy, the touching of souls, feeling emotion and experiencing the beauty of the world. But rather than spend a lifetime building a common goal and love with someone who perhaps is your opposite, we spend a lifetime looking for the ideal partner, someone who is going to understand the inside of my head and be part of the real me. This process takes much trial and error and searching again and again but then that is what our virtual society is all about.

The diamond was and is always there, always telling us about strength, purity, honesty, value, individuality and rarity. So when we said “Diamonds are Forever” we looked for all these virtues in the Forever, now the latest campaign tells us “Real is Rare” and we look for all these magic properties in a diamond, in the reality which is rare and worthwhile searching and striving for. The King of the Gemstones does not change his qualities, it is only in the perception of his subjects that he plays a different role.

The new campaign has indeed brought the diamond back to reality of the society we live in and makes the diamond again a must with the same endurance and perseverance that it used to be, albeit for different reasons.
