Baguette Wedding Bands: The Complete Guide

wedding ring engagement ring diamond jewelry

Your engagement ring is unquestionably the focal point of your bridal jewelry. While it's the one special bauble that symbolizes your relationship as a bride-to-be, a wedding band is equally special after you've said "I do." A baguette wedding band is a stunning choice if you're all about a blingy ring look.

What Is a Baguette Band?

A baguette band is a style that includes at least one baguette diamond or gemstone that can be long, rectangular, or tapered.

It was invented in the 1920s and was named after a French baguette due to its elongated rectangular shape. Its classic beauty is timeless, and the cut will never go out of style.

Pros and Cons of Baguette Wedding Bands

Baguette wedding bands come in a variety of styles and shapes, whether you're wearing a shimmering solitaire diamond, a cluster of gemstones, or a three-stone engagement ring—from eternity bands with a single row of baguette stones to bands with alternating stone shapes that include baguettes and modern band styles with tapered or fanned baguettes. So, regardless of your style—modern, vintage, or fashion-forward—baguette bands' versatility provides a timeless look for every bride.

While baguette wedding bands are certainly eye-catching, they can also be quite expensive. The ferocity of this statement piece may be too much for some brides' everyday style. When paired with an engagement ring, the two rings can exude a lot of eye-catching sparkle (which isn't necessarily a bad thing! ), but they may also feel out of place with your more casual looks or daily lifestyle. However, if you want to tone things down or change your mood, you can easily wear just your band or your engagement ring. You can never go wrong with options!

How to Choose a Baguette Wedding Band

  • What settings complement a baguette wedding band the best?

    The best setting for highlighting the shape and appearance of the stone is solitaire or solitaire pavé.

  • Will more unusually cut stones still look good with a baguette band?

    Baguette bands are designed to complement angular stones such as square, emerald, radiant, Asscher, or hexagon cuts. So, no matter what engagement ring you choose, a baguette band will almost certainly complement it beautifully.

  • How do I know if the ring is of high quality?

    In a baguette diamond band, cut and clarity are most important. Baguette diamonds require fewer cuts than other diamond cuts. Because there are only 14 facets in a baguette-cut stone, precision is essential. If the stone is not cut perfectly, flaws will be visible much more easily than in other diamond cuts.

  • What carat weights go well with baguette diamond bands?

    Baguette diamonds look great in smaller weights when it comes to carats. These diamonds are more noticeable in sizes less than one carat.

  • How can I make my baguette stack stand out?

    If you're going to stack your rings, wedding "suites," as they're colloquially known, are a great way to make your stack feel unique, whether you need an arched baguette design to complement a round-, oval-, or pear-shaped engagement ring or a V-shaped band to sit next to a marquise- or shield-cut stone.

  • Is there a way to make my baguette band sparkle more?

    For a super-blingy look, get an enhancer ring with two rows of baguettes that sit on top and bottom of your engagement ring.

How to Look After a Baguette Ring

Make it a habit to clean your baguette stones on a regular basis. While diamonds are eternal, regular cleaning and care are required to keep them brilliant and shiny. Everyday tasks, such as skin oils, makeup, and skincare products, as well as dirt and other environmental dust, can cause diamonds to lose their luster.

It is critical to clean beneath the ring's shaft so that dirt and other debris do not accumulate in the ring. If you're unsure how to clean the ring, take it to your jeweler, who will handle the band with care. On occasion, ultrasonic machines can be used to clean your diamond, but the best way to clean your ring is with a mild soap and water mixture.

While engaging in hand-heavy activities, keep your band in a safe place, such as a jewelry box or fabric-lined ring box, especially if they involve any products that could harm your ring over time.
