Special Cut Diamond Shapes
Baguette - Traditional Cut
Baguettes are (more often than not) calibrated and measured in millimeters (and not by carat weight), because the sizes must be very precise and perfectly matched for a variety of settings. If they are to be set as side stones or in matched pairs, they must be of similar quality, color and clarity to one another (with a minimum tolerance level). The baguette is considered to be a step-cut.
The Baguillion Cut is essentially a baguette diamond with square corners with the faceting of a princess cut. Many styles of the company’s jewelry collection feature Baguillion Cut diamonds, which combine the elongated shape of a baguette and the square princess cut. There also are combinations of Baguillion Cut diamonds with round brilliants in the jewelry line. Baguette World has created a program of consumer advertising and support material for the line.

Special cuts just for color. Speaking of color, some of the more innovative and exciting initiatives involve Louis Glick's Blonde Diamonds. Their advertising campaign featured “Meet a Natural Blonde” and “New Blonde in Town.” What Louis Glick did was he branded special cuts by highlighting natural fancy color yellow diamonds; and, thereby, created a new look for natual fancy colors to satisfy a diversified market.
