Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. Burns and Allen. What do these favorite stars of yesteryear have to do with antique and vintage engagement rings ? Well, that's exactly how we feel about vintage rings paired with tapered baguettes, a match made in heaven! We love engagement rings. Our favorite diamond accent is the baguette diamond. Baguette diamonds come as tapered, or straight, and are one of the most versatile accent gemstones. They have been used in the Art Deco, Edwardian, and Victorian eras, and continue to be used today. Baguettes look lovely as a side accent with mine or european cut diamonds, with precious and semi precious gemstones, or with a beautiful pear or marquis cut engagement ring from the 1970's. Baguette diamonds look fantastic in all of our favorite metals, including platinum, gold and rose gold. Elegant and classic, let's take a trip down memory lane and look at 5 stunning engagement rings with our versatile friend, the baguette!
