by Desertrose » Jan 11, 2018 I'm looking at getting a vintage ring, photo attached. Dated to around early 1900's. The milgrain is worn off the outside edge, you can see a little bit left in a few spots. I was thinking of having the milgrain repaired. The vendor made the comment that she wouldn't do anything to an antique ring. What are your thoughts? Better to leave as is, or add back milgrain? Does that reduce it's value?
