This ebay seller (who I have bought off of before) has lots of vintage stuff! Everything is brand new, btw.

Here is an example & it has milgrain, $145:

They also can make rings if you send them a picture. So I am sure if you asked they could make this one in rose gold if you wanted!

@GelaMac:  YES! They have amazing prices! I have been eye balling soooo much of their stuff. I like a sterling ring they have a with citrine or yellow sapphire. Can’t remember which, but gorgeous!

Not sure what part of the country you are in, but I got my vintage/antique wedding band from a jewelry shop in Houston who deals in only antique jewelry.  They have a decent website too – Although not everything is listed, they pick and choose what to feature, and select a lot of the higher end items to put online.

My platnium and 14k gold mixed metal (not blended like an alloy, OR plated, almost like a swirl pattern) was $495.  It’s a c. 1900 piece.

This is one that’s on the website now. size 5 1/4, 2mm wide, white gold $595

We added a filigree to my engagement ring and wedding band to give them more of unqiue/vintage-y look. The additional benefit is that it masks any surface scratches, etc.
