Tell me what you think about this ring; honest opinions!
I want rose gold with a round diamond, and don’t mind a vintage feel but I’m wondering if the milgrain on this ring is too much. What kind of band would you pair with it?
(Don’t mind the white out on the sides… the picture had a matching wedding band which I wouldn’t get so I painted it out to get a better idea.)

Not a fan personally. It overwhelms that diamond.

I do think the miligrain is a little too much for this ring. I think it distracts from the center stone a little too much for my tastes. That being said, my tastes don’t matter here- how do YOU feel about it?? Yours is the only opinion that matters here 🙂

I do like it but as slomotion said, it takes over the centre stone. I’d prefer it with either a bigger centre or no centre at all and just rock it as is.

That milgrain isn’t well done IMO. It’s too beady. From what I e seen though, sometimes with these pics, they don’t look like that AT ALL in person. It may be fine.

It would be pretty if the center stone was bigger.

I’m sure the milgrain would look much daintier in person as this image is enlarged to show detail. I do think that the ring it’s self needs to be scaled down a bit to compliment the center stone better. But overall I think it’s a beautiful ring!

It’s too ornate for my taste.

It’s a lovely ring but wether or not the milgrain is overpowering to the center stone is dependent on how finely done the milgrain is. A finely done milgrain would be a beautiful compliment to the ring and center stone. A not so finely done chunky milgrain will be distracting. Are there actual pictures of this ring?

Hard to tell with a stock photo.

I really like it!! I love a vintage look! It’s beautiful – in fact, where is it from? I Might order one myself
i think it might look nicer with s slightly bigger centre stone – but that’s a personal option. Everyone likes a different size centre stone.

My initial reaction was similar to most of yours. I’ve been sitting on it for a few days trying to figure out what bothered me about it and it’s definitely the milgrain.
My SO had asked for inspiration photos of what I like so I sent some to him about two months ago. The other day I used his laptop for something (not out of the norm at all!) and this ring was pulled up and it looked like he may have put a deposit on it. I’m trying to decide if I should talk to him about it. The ring was never that important to me but he asked me for inspiration pics because he wants me to absolutely love it and I can’t see myself loving this ring. I’ve been thinking about what I could pair it with to make it feel more like me but I haven’t found anything that I think would match well.
I honestly think it’d be really pretty without the milgrain so then I went to, can I have it removed?! haha
To answer some of the questions: Its from a local jeweler that his best friend used when he got an engagement ring last year. I believe it’s shown in stock photo with a 4.1mm center stone, which is slightly less then what what I think my SO will go for (probably 0.5 carat).
Yes! I couldn’t come up with the right word, but it’s definitely beady and I think that’s why I don’t care for it much and why it overwhelms the ring. I’d hope it would be daintier in person but there’s a possibility it’s not.
No, there are no real pictures unfortunately. 🙁

The…draping…makes it look like a circus tent. That’s all I can see. I think with a larger stone it would minimize how dramatic that setting is. But for a stone that size, there are definitely settings better suited.
After having stalked the Stuller website for a year, this looks like one of their settings. Maybe look at some other Stuller settings and see if there is anything similar but slightly more subtle?

Not a fan but it reminds me a little bit of Verragio’s rings- they have a style that has similar details but only on the sides (as opposed to the top, which I think is overwhelming). The picture I’m posting is a ring I initially fell in love with! I ended up choosing something completely different at the end, but I’m still a fan of this!
