What is Tapered Baguette?

Tapered baguette cut is a specific elongated, rectangular shape with tapered ends. These ends are narrower than the central part of the gemstone, creating a trapezoidal or kite-like shape They are a variation of the classic baguette cut, which is characterized by its step-cut facets and rectangular shape, but with tapered sides, resulting in a more elegant and dynamic appearance.


Tapered baguette cut gemstones have a fascinating history in jewelry design. They rose to prominence during the Art Deco era in the 1920s and 1930s, aligning perfectly with the era's emphasis on geometric shapes, clean lines, and bold sophistication. Their angular and elongated shape harmonized with the Art Deco aesthetic.

Often used as side stones, they enhanced symmetry and balance in engagement rings and jewelry. Their popularity continued through the mid-20th century, particularly in vintage and retro designs. In recent times, tapered baguettes enjoyed a resurgence, appreciated for their classic, understated elegance in contemporary and minimalist jewelry.


Vaibhav Dhadda's mastery in the art of tapered baguettes lies in a unique approach to gemstone refinement.  The Rough Gemstones undergoes a rigorous process. Initially, it is hand-selected, sorted based on quality and color density, and cut into preforms. Skilled artisans then re-assort and reshape each gemstone to match the design. They use a freehand technique, grinding the preforms with a diamond powder-equipped spinning wheel, or "lap," for faceting. Afterward, the stones are expertly tapered and polished, ensuring uniformity in size, shape, and gradation.

This level of precision and expertise ensures that every gemstone meets the high standards of beauty and quality, showcasing a level of craftsmanship that sets his jewelry apart in the world of gems. Our dedication to this process has taken over five years to perfect. This commitment to excellence is a hallmark of Dhadda's creations.
