I’m super excited too! And yes, I think you’re absolutely right, the fine level of detail in the filagree cherry blossoms and branches is lost in the wax and it looks much chunkier–I’m imagining that when it’s cast in gold the details will look much cleaner (at least that’s what I’m praying for, lol)
hahahaha, fair enough! It’s definitely not everyone’s cup of tea, but I’m glad you like the rest of it!
yep, you’re right, I think I really do want it. I think I’ll have him show it to me after it’s cast, prior to hand milgraining it so I can see what it would look like plain–that may help. And you’re absolutely right, if I hate it, I can get it polished out or however they remove it, lol.
thank you! For some reason I think it’s going to tie it all together nicely–can’t wait to see the finished product. I’ll definitely come back and post when it’s done
You’re so sweet. Also, good point–I’ll for sure ask. Thanks for bringing that up! Question though–wouldn’t that be a potential issue whether I wear it with or without my engagement ring (you mentioned wearing it solo and I’m curious as to why that would make a difference–I genuinely can’t figure it out, lol)

That’s going to be gorgeous!! I’m not sure they it needs the milgrain, but it would be fine with it. You’ll have to show us “after” photos!!

oh, I for sure will! I gave the go ahead for casting yesterday so I should have it in just a few weeks 😊 SUPER EXCITED!! The cherry blossoms were important symbolically to me as they represent my fiancé’s Japanese heritage and I wanted my wedding band to represent him in some way.
Also, I’m currently having a right hand 3 stone vertical ring made that has filagree designs/engravings that represent my roots (I’m half Maghrebine Berber–an indigenous tribe from North Africa). When he saw the CAD, he suggested he have those same designs engraved in his ring so that his wedding band could represent me as well. I thought that was really sweet and it made me really happy–especially cause he’s not nearly as into jewelry as me (I mean, most people rarely are, even women, lol)
I’ll definitely share my new right hand ring once it’s done too just in case anyone’s interested! 😊

woahhh super pretty and wouldn’t guessed it was a wax mold, so realistic lol.
I think it would look perfect with fine milgrain as it would give that edge.

It will look amazing! I love it with your engagement ring and the symbolism of the cherry blossoms is so meaningful! Please share soooooo many pics once you get it. Please also post the RHR and your FI’s wedding band. I’d love to see them! 🤩🤩🤩

Well now I like your ring even more! The symbolism of the cherry blossoms is just lovely!

Looks so beautiful, the band looks to be a good size and the diamond stone is just perfect, really compliments your hand as well. In these times, when we are stuck with a virtual wedding or a small wedding, it is actually more satisfying to see this wedding band, it is inspirational and I love it, can’t wait for my wedding too.!!

I know exactly what you mean! We got engaged in Feb and wanted some time to just enjoy the engagement before beginning to plan and then boom…March brought the true impacts of COVID to our world’s attention.
We’re not even going to start to plan until we know more, cause really, there’s no point in even starting to plan when things are still so uncertain. We want our family and friends there and to plan for that right now would just be silly (that’s our thought anyway, lol)
So designing this band made me really happy and even though I’ll have it for a looooong time before actually being able to wear it, looking at it will bring me some measure of peace and the symbolism makes me happy.
My future husband will also be getting my maiden name tattooed on him in my father’s native language/dialect, That in addition to his desire to have his band designed with symbols that represent my roots are the things I’ll cherish in this time. Things aren’t perfect, but life is still good and I am lucky enough to be sharing my life with a man I love and who also loves me, so much.
ETA-just realized I’m responding to a poster with 1 post and a link to virtual weddings in the post, so it may or may not be a spam post, but shit, I took the time to write the above and I meant it so I’m just going to leave it, lol. And who knows, maybe it’s a real poster. 😊

Gorgeous! And yes, I’m voting in favor of the fine milgrain along the knife edge.
(When I first looked at the photo, before even reading your text, the only thing I didn’t like about the mold was that the top of the knife edge just looked like a boring bar across the ring from the top view. Then when I read your text, I thought to myself, “Perfect! That milgrain would fix it!”).

Your ering extends beyond the band on the top so if you were to hit your hand into anything the ering would take the damage, not the band.
Tiffany used to make a knife edge band with milgrain on the edge:
