    I think the plain band really sets off your e ring! Where as the milgrain takes away from it a bit.

    For some reason, the milgrain just doesn’t seem to “go” with your ering (beautiful!)…I can’t say what it is exactly. The plain band is a perfect compliment is really sets off your stone!

    Another vote for plain! I don’t really have a reason besides, just because. The plain bands looks beautiful with your e-ring, and if you travel with just your band, nothing says married like a plain wedding band to me.

    I’m biased as I have and love my 2.5mm milgrain band. It’s simple but has just enough detail to set it apart.

    Number 1 gives more of a cohesive look. Your engagement ring is lovely by the way.

    onward :  I like the mailigrain as looks more in line with keeping to the time period of your ering

    I like a plain band but definitely thicker so it doesn’t blend in with your gorgeous ering.

    I see Art Deco and/or vintage rings two ways:  decorative and romantic; or clean-lined and glamourous.  I think yours is the latter, and the plain band is perfect. The milgrain band belongs to the decorative styles, In My Humble Opinion. Beautiful heirloom—someone had very classic taste!

    I like the first one with your engagement ring. It blends in really well. The milgrain one stands out a lot and doesnt go well. The first one is perfect.

    I voted plain but I don’t think there’s a wrong answer here, go with what you like best.

    I think both rings are beautiful but something about that milgrain band is really talking to me. I voted for that one!

    I love the milgrain for itself  , but the plain actually  suits your engagement ring better . And is a lovely  classic .

    onward :  We’re ring twins! Both bands are beautiful with your ring. The milgrain is fun and a bit more eye catching, but if you’re leaning towards more of a matching look, I would go with the plain. I ended up choosing a diamond band with mine, but I remember how surprised I was with how much I liked the look of a plain band as well!
