Antique and Vintage Tapered Baguette Rings and Jewellery
Tapered baguette diamonds are a form of baguette cut diamond, however, tapered baguette rings and jewellery look slightly different than traditional baguette diamonds. The tapered baguette diamond is a very unique diamond cut, and looks incredibly elegant and refined. They are popular with people looking for vintage engagement rings - because tapered baguette diamonds are often small, they can be used to create stunning and unique ring designs.
Tapered baguette diamonds are very much like the ordinary baguette diamond - they are long and slender, emulating the shape of a ‘baguette.’ However, tapered baguette diamonds taper in at the sides, creating a trapezoid shape. One side of the diamond is thinner than the other, meaning the tapered baguette diamond looks incredibly dynamic and interesting. Tapered baguette rings and jewellery have been very popular throughout the ages, due to their unique shine and composition.
Tapered baguette diamonds take a lot of expertise to create, just like ordinary baguette diamonds. Tapered baguette diamonds have only 14-24 facets, meaning that the quality of the cut is responsible for the quality of the diamond. If one facet isn’t perfect, the diamond is ruined. Tapered baguette rings are valuable down to the stone cutting expertise that is needed to create them.
Like baguette gemstones, the tapered baguette diamond was invented around the 1920s and 30s, due to the technological advancements of the time. Tapered baguette rings and jewellery were incredibly popular during this period, as it fit in with the artistic atmosphere of the period. After the first world war, society wanted to shift from the ideals and artistic temperament of the past, wanting to modernise. The art deco movement was born, and it could be categorised by dynamic, geometric shapes and symmetrical designs. Tapered baguette diamonds became incredibly popular in this period due to this artistic movement, and you can see many of them on Art Deco engagement rings.
Tapered baguette diamonds are incredibly versatile, and can be used in a variety of different ways. Tapered baguette diamonds can be designed to flank other larger stones to create stunning, interesting jewellery designs. Since the 1920s, many brooches, rings, necklaces and earrings have used tapered baguette diamonds to create an incredibly evocative and dynamic look. However, tapered baguette rings that only use tapered diamonds have also become popular as time has progressed, demonstrating how the beauty of the diamond withstands the test of time.
Tapered baguette diamonds have been popular ever since they were invented, over 100 years ago.
