The simplicity of this solitaire ring setting beautifully enhances the streamlined angular shape of this baguette diamond also known as a step cut gem. The simplicity belies the challenge of this ring setting as there are so many straight lines and square forms and angular shapes which must all be parallel. Baguette gemstones are mostly cut for weight rather than standardized size which means that a supply house might not have a suitable bagutte prong setting in stock.
