    It’s totally up to you, but what you already have is wonderful! Maybe consider getting a right hand ring in that style?

    it would be really pretty. I don’t want to rain on your parade, but how would they add milgrain to your rings? I believe details that tiny have to be part of the original cast and couldn’t realistically be added on later.

    well, if it turns out you can’t do it,  your rings are super pretty as-is. you could always get  yourself a milgrain right hand ring or something!

    @janie-janie:  Yea I thought the same thing. Esp. with your setting. There isn’t much to work with metal wise. I would assume its highly costly & you would need to reset each stone in a new setting with the milgrain already in it.

    You could get a enterinty band for a anni with milgrain or a rhr ring as pp’s mentioned!

    My ring was custom and the guy who made it put milgrain on the sides… not sure why?? And I thought it made my stones look dull! So I had him buff it out, don’t do it!
