At what point (size or dimension) does a baguette become an Emerald Cut? Or are they not close enough cut wise to compare?

The baguette is a much simpler shape than the emerald. It is used for smaller stones which don't require the more elaborate faceting of the emerald shape. Baguettes are only occasionally found in larger stones.

A similar comparison can be drawn between the single cut and the more elaborate round brilliant.

My understanding of the difference between baguettes and emerald cuts is that baguettes do not have clipped corners. There may be more to it than that, but I know for certain that is one of the differences.

I wonder what is the smallest emerald cut diamond, and what's the largest baguette diamond?

David, just to clarify - did you say 5 ct or .5 ct? I couldn't tell.

I always thought that Emerald & Baguette Cut Diamonds were the same, but no they are not. I never really new until the time I purchased Jeri's rings.
