I love baguettes. Not my official ering, but a CZ ring I bought to try out the setting type and prongs. It is a 3 carat CZ (9mm) and the baguettes are each 5-7 mm long. The gallery/basket is very low, which makes it comfortable, but causes it to hit my wedding band. I have an open cuff ring, not in the pic, that I use as a spacer. Size 10.5 finger with 4.4 mm wide wedding band.

These baguetts in this CZ rin are set so the end is held in a tail-prong and they are tipped up (like epaulets on a military coat). I prefer when the baguette is held by the shank (see second picture, by Steven Kirsch). The shoulders of the shank are curved outward to meet the tail of the baguette. That makes the tail less pokey and your fingers rest in the curves, which tends to keep the ring upright.  Also gives the ring a lovely side profile.

YAY!  I’ll share.  Cushion cut center diamond.  Center is 1.72 or something but faces up more like a 2 carat.  No idea what the baguette sizes are.  The measurements of the center stone are something like 9.40×7.20 I don’t have the paperwork with me…

2.06 carat pear. Double baguette side stones roughly weighing in at 0.15 each. Have a matching double baguette curved band that I took off for pics so you get a better idea of the size.

Mine is 1 carat center stone and I think it’s about 1.7 total weight with the baguettes. Size 6 finger.

soontobesaint :  It will depend on a couple of variable. Most importantly…how the shank will be altered to set stones. If the shank is a solid circle, with everything set on top, you can safely go down to 1.6 mm. So, on SmilingMrsD’s lovely ring, it looks to me that they used bars to set everything on top of the shank. This would allow the overall shoulder area to be narrower. If the baguettes will be channel set, the overall shoulder can be narrow, because the channels add a lot of structural stability. If the shank was going to be drilled into to carve out a setting spot, like for pave, you lose a lot of metal. In any case, I’d recommend sticking with 2.0 mm. But, that can taper down to 1.6 mm under your finger.

Any ring that is wider at the shoulder can taper under the finger. As an example, I have this ring from my great grandmother, 1920s, Palladium-white gold, 1.5 tcw. It is 10 mm at the top of the shoulder and tapers to 3.5 mm under my finger (white hold, baguettes and single cut diamonds on the sides). But, I could not wear a band flush with such a strong taper, unless it was curved or notched to follow that same taper. Forgive how dirty it is in this picture, I can’t seem to upload a better picture.

I have a 6.5mm FB moissanite, and I think the baguettes are 0.1 or 0.2ct diamonds
