    I generally love milgrain, but I really like the simplicity of the ring in the first picture so that’s what I’d do with.

    By the way, beautiful stone although pears are my favority so I’m definitely biased.

    I didn’t like miligrain once upon a time, but have come to love it. It adds sparkle and dimension /visual interest. That 2nd ring is beautiful! Go with your gut, which one would you regret not getting?

    I think the milgrain would look beautiful, but I also really like the thinner band of the Artemer ring. I think what looks like the thicker band on the Sierra ring might take away from the milgrain.

    I wouldn’t go with the milgrain – but then I’m a fan of the simple, clean lines of the bezel (my ring is being made with a bezel mount so I am biased)! If I was going to go with milgrain I would go all in and have that incorporated some how in the shank as well. However, your ring, your decision and both are beautiful!!

    I agree with pp about the thinner band looking better.  But I also like the look of the milgrain.  Have you considered getting a halo?

    Whimsicalfate:  I really like the simple look for that pear. It’s hard to tell from the online photo of just the ring what milgrain would look like. I definitely wouldn’t pair milgrain and pave bands or halos wit diamons and milgrain, that just gets too busy. And if you do go the milgrain route, make sure it’s someone who is really good at it. I’ve seen some really sloppy, clunky milgrain on here.

    Whimsicalfate:  I love love LOVE milgrain on bezel settings. Add in a touch of rose gold to warm it up and perfection. Definitely add milgrain!

    I have milgrain on my e-ring and I don’t think I would get it again – it’s so delicate and I can see imperfections in it already after only 3 months!

    Milgrain, milgrain, milgrain!!! I wear a milgrain bezel round moissanite and the milgrain is such a beautiful part of the ring. It does give a vintage feel and the rose sparkle is so amazing. Like a very thin halo, as you said. If the milgrain gets dammaged, it can be redone by a jeweler, down the line. 

    My beauty!

    My milgrain is super delicate though.
