As far as bridal jewelry goes, your engagement ring is undoubtedly the focal point. And while it’s the one special bauble that signifies your relationship as a bride-to-be, once you’ve said ‘I do’, a wedding band is an equally special ring to add into the mix. If you’re all about a blingy ring look, a baguette wedding band is a stunning choice if you’re all about some show-stopping sparkle.

What is a Baguette Diamond?

"A baguette ring is a style set with either one or multiple baguette cut stones," Madeline Fraser, founder and CEO of Gemist tells BRIDES.

The first step in establishing what style of baguette wedding band is right for you is figuring out whether you want to stack your wedding band with your engagement ring or wear it separately on your right finger and move your engagement ring over to your left (or vice versa, you do you). If you’re going to stack your rings, wedding “suites” as their commonly referred to are a great way to make your stack feel unique whether you need an arched baguette design to compliment a round, oval, or pear-shaped engagement ring, or a V-shaped band to properly situate next to a marquise or shield-cut stone.

There are even baguette bands specifically cut to sit alongside angular stones like a square, emerald, radiant, Asscher, or hexagon cut. Or, you can get an enhancer ring with two rows of baguettes that sit on the top and bottom of your engagement ring for a super blingy look.

Ahead, learn about the pros and cons of baguette diamond wedding bands, what to look for when shopping for one, and get inspired by rings to shop immediately. 

Pros and Cons of Baguette Wedding Bands

If you’re separating your two rings, the sky’s the limit in terms of baguette bands whether you want an ultra-slim band with a single baguette stone or a thick, glittering style with rows (and rows) of diamonds. For a glitzy, eye-catching look, a wave, X-shaped, or thick, retro-style baguette band will really shimmer and shine. Sure, coupled with an engagement ring, these styles are a lot of look. But you can easily wear just your band or your engagement on days when you want to tone things down or as your mood changes. Can’t go wrong with options! If you’re not the type to want a traditional engagement ring at all, a spectacular band may be all you need as an achingly chic alternative for modern brides.

What to Look for In a Baguette Wedding Band

  • What settings pair best with a baguette wedding band? "To really show off the shape and look of the stone, the best setting is solitaire or solitaire pavé," Fraser says.
  • How can I tell if the ring is high quality? According to Fraser, the cut and clarity matter the most in a baguette diamond band. "Baguette stones require fewer cuts than other cuts of diamonds. There are only 14 facets in a baguette-cut stone, which means that precision is important. If the stone is not cut perfectly, flaws will be seen much easier than in other cuts of diamonds," she adds.
  • What carats pair best with baguette diamond bands? "When it comes to carats, baguette diamonds look great in a smaller weight," Fraser notes. These diamonds are more noticeable in under one carat.

How to Care for a Baguette Ring

Be sure to clean your baguette stones regularly. It's important to clean underneath the ring's shaft so that dirt and other debris don't build up in the ring. If you're unsure of how to clean the ring, you can take it to your jeweler, who will delicately handle the band.

History of Baguette Diamonds

The baguette is a type of stone cut that has a fantastic history. Reminiscent of the roaring 20’s, the baguette cut has a vintage nostalgia that is incredibly alluring. "It was created in the 1920’s and named for its elongated rectangular shape after a French baguette. It’s timeless in its classic beauty, a cut that will never go out of style," Fraser adds.

Types of Baguette Settings

Whether your engagement ring style is timeless, modern, vintage, or fashion-forward, a wedding band should be an equally special and complimentary silhouette. Whether you have a shimmering solitaire diamond, cluster of gemstones, or three-stone engagement ring, baguette wedding bands come in a variety of styles and shapes 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.
