We may talk about the engagement ring trends that have fallen out of favor or the trends currently in high demand, but if you’re feeling a bit of fatigue at the thought of an engagement ring that’s less than timeless, this should serve as a bit of respite. Despite dozens of engagement ring styles and stone cuts, there’s one detail that Hollywood’s stars have favored for almost 70 years—from the 1950s to present day.
Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor, Amal Clooney, Priyanka Chopra, and more celebs have chosen solitaire stone rings flanked by tapered baguette diamonds as their engagement rings. Why, exactly, have tapered baguette rings been a timeless pick despite different stone shapes coming in and out of style? According to Alicia Davis, VP of merchandise for Shane Co., “the classic setting is so attractive for the way in which it frames the center stone. The east-west position of the baguettes elongates the center stone while also adding minimalist sparkle to the band.”
