I havent gotten my engagement ring yet, but it is a bezel halo, with milgrain. I liked the milgrain because I felt it added some extra detail to the ring. That is pretty much the only reason!

@koveline:  I have milgrain on my wedding band and I love it! I like that there’s a little detail, it just gives it something extra!

My rings don’t have milgrain but my Fiance wanted it on his. I think it just ads a little something to the band.

EDIT: I just realized….isn’t the detail around the edge considered milgrain? If so I stand corrected. 🙂

I have Miligrain on my Ering and my wedding band and I just love the look of it! It gives just the right amount of detail to my rings!

Agreed, I have it as well and I just like how it adds the little detail and texture. It also does give it more of a vintage feel than smooth metal

its on my enagement ring and will be on my wedding band.  I just think it adds to the vintage feel I was going for- my engagement ring is a replica of a ring from the 20’s I saw and loved. 

 

and just for visual, here a ring without milgrain and with.  I definiltey think the one without has a more moden aesthetic while the one with is more vintage feeling.

Yes I have miligrain around the diamonds on my e-ring and wedding band. i love it because it gives it a vintage feel and I love vintage rings. The detail is so interesting to look at.

Fiance picked it out. He didn’t want a plain band. He had no idea what he was doing and he just chose what he liked. At first, it was too traditional for me, but the more I look at it, the more I love it.

@Soon.to.be.Mrs.Freeman:  I think he did a fantastic job. Those two rings look great together. I think they make a nice set.

I don’t have milgrain, but I think it’s lovely. There is a very delicate, vintage look about the rings that sport it. However, in the end, I like everything I wear to be as simple and sleek as possible, so I have plain bands.

I love milgrain. I like that it has a vintage feel. I’m a sucker for small details, and I think they’re what make the ring sometimes.

I have Milgrain on my Engagement Ring and not on my band…I kind of wish I had found a rose gold band with milgrain but eh…They’re still pretty 🙂    Like most of the pp have said, I  like the little extra detail it gives.
