    I really like the milgrain look -(vintage). I didn’t know milgrain could be added so easily!! Very cool  – I love your rings.

    Hmm, tough call on your e-ring. My FH didn’t want me to have milgraining on my e-ring so I got a wedding band with milgrain and I love it! I think the contrast between my plain band and my milgrained wedding band looks really nice. I would say wait until you receive the band and see what you think with them both on your finger – and then if you want to go with it you can always have it done 🙂

    Here’s my set for reference:

    @linnylou_88:  I’m biased because my ring is miligrain and I love that detail. So I say go for it

    I voted yes to milgrain! I love all things vintage, so my set–it’s been ordered but not yet received!–of three rings are all 1920’s vintage, and all have milgrain to some extent. It’s such a classic look. Then again, your ering is GORGEOUS even without it! I agree with FutureDrAtkins, though–maybe get them both together and then decide. You may love the slight contrast between the two!

    @linnylou_88:  This is probably the 5th thread you’ve started asking this same question, you have the photoshop pic and the past polls. At this point, you really just have to make a choice for yourself.
