The best milgrain is applied by hand. Cast doesn’t compare, and the quality of the casting can vary significantly.

Oh that’s tough. But bands should be returnable, so don’t be afraid to order several to compare (after verifying the return policy).

I actually just bought a white gold milgrain wedding band to go with my solitaire! I was able to pick up my band last night and take some pics with my engagement ring. Sorry about the crappy quality (I took them with my camera), but you can get a good feel for what a nice milgrain looks like. For the record, it was around $210 after tax so it was cheap too!

I think my e-ring is 1.5mm (it’s really dainty in terms of band width) and I think the wedding band is 2mm. There isn’t a huge different in thickness, and I think the band is “simple” without being “plain,” know what I mean?

Also, ring size is a 5 if that helps you as well.

My band is milgrain platinum. I suspect it was custom made as it came with a slightly larger one for my husband. Mine looks a lot like MissCarnival’s (nice set, btw!). I love it. So low maintenance but big enough for people to really notice it.
