Thank you so much junebug17! I'm pretty sure I will have it milgrained the rest of the way. Seeing the mock up Jimmianne did confirmed it for me. Just a matter of when, lol.
Thanks MissGotRocks! And I'm usually the opposite. Give me milgraining every time. I really thought I would hate it without but when I saw it. I loved it. [still leaning towards milgraining though...…...…shhhhh, don't tell hubby].Your new ring is just beautiful! I am not always a milgrain fan but in this instance I would opt for it. I think it draws the side stones in perfectly!
Holy cow!!! Stunning. Happy 40thEEEEEK!, it's finally here on my hot little hand! My "Big Birthday"/40th Anniversary present a few months early, lol. The main stone is a 3.01 ct I VVS2 emerald cut. The traps are .50ct each and one is G VVS2 and one is G VS1. The setting is platinum, hand engraved/milgrained. My jeweler brought it down to FL for me to look at because we are debating whether or not there should be milgraining around the traps. She and my husband think it is a cleaner look without the milgraining. Initially I thought it absolutely needed it but now that I've seen it in person I'm not sure. I keep changing my mind. UGH!! I need to have her refine the prongs a bit so either way it's going to go back but at this point I'm torn. The engraving and the milgraining on the rest of the setting is amazing and there's even scrollwork underneath the stone which is very cool. What do you guys think?
Thanks Mrs_b! The setting is amazing to me. All hand forged and hand detailed. I can't believe we almost passed on the center stone. It is gorgeous but looked so yellow in my jewelers showroom. We finally figured out it is a mirror and was reflecting her gold ceiling and my husbands yellow sweater.Congratulations on your dream ring! What a wonderful setting - and a gorgeous center stone!
So now the $64,000 question.... which do you find more visually appealing? Your gorgeous yellow diamond e-ring, or your stunning new EC?
And I have to just add - I still have an ongoing love for your beautiful EC and mrb wedding ring! SO lovely!
ETA ...and check out those brown legs!! So jealous!
Thanks Mamabean! Exactly what my jeweler said, lol. It really is a sparkle bomb, just bigger flashes.@Catmom Wow! I can’t believe I missed this post! It is stunning! It’s decadent! I really like the clean look from the top and the milgrain everywhere else. It’s easy to add milgrain later..but almost impossible to take it off..That’s a great idea to live with it for a while...Congratulations on your beautiful sparkle bomb!
