I say go for it! It never hurts to know before you spend money on the real thing, and if you end up hating it then that’s better than blowing a large sum of cash on the one you want and having to try and resell it.

Have you found any Etsy vendors that do something with pallidium? Maybe one could do a custom order for you?

This brand carries kind of what you’re looking for, but not in palladium.

If you like it, contact them and see if any jewelers in your area carry this brand.  From my understanding, the jewelers can order any styles from the catalog (it’s what we’re planning to do for my e-ring!).  It’s not exactly the leafy design you were going for, but I love milgrain edges! Maybe look through though, I might have missed one that looks good!

On the etsy one..it’s not very much, if you really want to get a gauge of how you like the style.  If you know you like the style and how it fits with your e-ring, might not be worth it.

Why don’t you buy the white gold version from a place that you can return it to?  I think I’ve seen bands like this on Antique Jewelry Mall and Marlene Harris Collection websites.

I don’t think the silver one on Etsy is close enough to scratch your itch or give you an idea what your dream ring would look like IRL. I think you should try to order your dream ring! Do they have a return policy?

My ring is palladium with milgrain edge and engraved in the middle, but unfortunately it’s wider than 3mm, so not quite what you’re looking for.  I’m afraid I don’t know the brand.  I got it at Longs in Burlington, MA.

For the record, I have the Etsy ring you’re looking at, and it’s beautiful. I wear it as a right hand ring next to my Claddaugh and it’s great. I don’t think it would stand up as a wedding ring, though; the silver is too soft. Dragon’sBreath was great to work with.

So I’m actually looking at a ring that sounds similar to what you want.  It’s not easy finding rings like that, but I think I found something that might be close to what you’re wanting. I’m having trouble uploading a picture but here’s a link

I don’t know how you feel about the diamonds, but I’m betting you could get the ring without them.  You could also see if there are any jewelers in your area that carry this ring.  I’m not sure I would spend $30 (plus whatever shipping is involved) on a ring just so I could see if I liked the design.  But I’m kinda cheap.

I don’t think you should get it.  It’ll be a waste of $30 plus I don’t think the picture looked that great.  My husband had me get him a filler ring before the wedding so he can get the feel of the ring and he never wore it.  Waste of money.

I’m going with an etsy ring (http://www.etsy.com/listing/59646427/going-barouque-wedding-band-sterling but in a 2mm width), you can probably ask them if they can do a custom order. This lady has been very helpful with mine.

 

She does a few with milgrain: http://www.etsy.com/listing/75546255/renaissance-wedding-band-or-stacking?ga_search_query=milgrain&ga_search_type=user_shop_ttt_id_5431883 not the center engraving you’re looking for but just an example 🙂 Hope that helps a little!

I say go for it. $30 is not very much, and if you find a better replacement for it in the future, then the silver ring can be your “dirty jobs” ring. 

also, I totally love the idea of getting a cheaper ring in the design you love so that you can wear it for a while and decide if it is really, truly the style of ring you want. I wish I had done that with my ring! I bought mine and then decided a few months later (too late to return it) that I didn’t like it! what an expensive mistake that was.
