Milgrain, also known as beading, is a detail most often seen as an embellishment on antique or vintage inspired designs. Milgrain is representative of little ‘beads’ of metal used to accent the edge of a setting or its design features like the halo, bezel or as a pattern to add additional adornment to the style.
Milgrain is French for “thousand grains,” which is characteristic of the artisanal style of creating these lovely little beads. There are a few ways to create this detail, one which is not as common today, starts with tiny beads of metal that are soldered to the jewelry design, however, the more popular/modern method used today starts with CAD technology and the milgrain is printed into a jewelry mold.
Do you love Milgrain?
Honey Wedding Set – beautiful beading along the edges of the band, accenting the design as well as a double row gallery detail.
Crown Engagement Ring – artistic milgrain detail in the gallery/crown and along the edges framing the accenting diamonds.
Amoré Vintage Diamond Wedding Band – this beautiful antique-inspired band is highlighted by detailed beading running along the edges of its unique shape.
Luxury Engagement Ring – this designer inspired design perfectly showcases how lovely milgrain is when used as an accent detail on a diamond halo, both the inner and outer halo look extra special with this beautiful touch.
Antique Circle Pendant – adding beading to accessories is a rich detail that gives the piece an ornate feel, which is sure to impress.

When choosing an engagement ring, it is important to consider the durability of the style compared to the activity of the wearer because we use our hands regularly without putting much thought into what we are doing with them. However, there are some ladies who truly live ‘active lifestyles’ – these are the ladies who really must find the balance of beauty and lifestyle.
What is an active lifestyle?
First impressions often leave us thinking that an active person is someone who plays contact sports or goes to the gym, but more often this is someone who has a physical job, like a stay-at-home parent, nurse or police officer. It could also be someone who works in an office. I know that seems like a reach, but repetitive activities like typing, sorting items in drawers or filing can cause damage to your setting or stone. You may not even realize that you fall into this category, but when you consider your job or hobbies, you might be surprised by how hard your hands are working every day.
When Beauty Meets Lifestyle…
Since an engagement ring is a big purchase, it makes sense to choose a style that is not only beautiful but will also sustain your lifestyle, so it will last throughout the years. We also understand that having to constantly remove your ring because you’re concerned about damaging it can be frustrating, but over the lifetime of the ring the cost of repairs could equal or even exceed the initial cost if you are not caring for the style you have chosen properly. Which is why we have put together a few ‘dos and don’ts’ for choosing engagement rings for an active lifestyle.
Engagement Rings for an Active Lifestyle
First and foremost, you may be asking yourself what does an engagement ring for an active lifestyle even mean – can’t all engagement rings be worn all the time for all activities. And the honest answer is no and just one of the reasons we think every woman should own more than one engagement ring.
Choose a setting with a low profile, like a bezel setting. A bezel is a style of setting that uses no prongs rather a rim of metal holds the stone, completely surrounding it, leaving only the upper portion, above the girdle, showing. Bezels can be plain metal or accented with diamonds or gems and often have smooth edges, but can be scalloped or molded into any shape to accommodate the stone.
Like our Renee Engagement Ring.
Wear your wedding band or stacking multiple bands (not pavé):
Wearing just your wedding band for certain circumstances where you will be more active is a great option or stacking multiple bands makes an even bigger statement while still keeping any possible damage to a minimum.
If you must have a solitaire or that extravagant vintage halo, that is ok – we know how hard it can be to give up the style you have been dreaming of just to be more practical. That is why we would suggest choosing a smaller center stone, should you insist on wearing a ring you never plan to take off.
We would also suggest considering the center stone shape. Going with a round or oval rather than something like a princess or pear. This would minimize the possibility of snagging your ring as much as possible because you would be eliminating the sharp points and corners associated with shapes like princess, pear, marquise, trillion, emerald or heart.
We all love the added bling of side diamonds and we would not discourage you to choose something with diamonds if that is what you love. However, we would want you to consider the setting style of those diamonds. Do not choose a pavé style engagement ring if you live an active life, go with something more sturdy like a channel setting.
Most people don’t consider their metal choice based on lifestyle or wearability, rather the deciding factor is something like price, color or sensitivity. If you want your ring to be durable, we suggest Platinum or Palladium. If you have your heart set on white gold, we would suggest 14K that is dipped with rhodium, we would not suggest 18K gold as it is considered to be much softer because of the higher gold content.
If you are having a hard time deciding what style of ring suits your lifestyle best, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our fantastic personal shopper team. They have the insight and experience to help you choose a style that will work with your lifestyle and hopefully minimize your maintenance needs over the lifetime of your ring.

Let’s face it, in today’s culture getting engaged comes along with the social pressure (and desire) to share a photo of your new engagement ring. However, before you share that first photo with everyone you know, we have a few tips to get it just right.
I sat down with our in-house photographer and expert ‘selfie taker’, Emily, and asked her to share with us her 4 favorite tips for taking the perfect Engagement Ring Selfie!
But First, Let’s Take an Engagement Ring Selfie!
TIP #1: Photo Ready Nails
You probably didn’t get a chance to make your nails look photo-ready before he/she popped the big question, so now is your chance! Put on a fresh coat of polish to accessorize that gorgeous engagement ring of yours.
TIP #2: Clean your Bling!
This may be the first time you will be showing off your new ring, so let’s make sure it’s squeaky clean. Dirt, oil, lotions, etc. can cause the diamond to lose its luster. The cleaner the ring, the more sparkle it will have!
TIP #3: Lighting is Everything
Photography is ALL about lighting. Find a spot that is lightly shaded and out of direct sunlight so that you and your diamond don’t look washed out.
TIP #4: Strike (the right) Pose
Your social media followers will go crazy over the sheer fact that you’re engaged! How do you get more likes? Delicately place your fingers close together in front of a beautiful background and you are guaranteed to be insta-famous for the day.
Follow these tips and we are confident that your first engagement ring photo will WOW everyone in your feed.
