What is Milgrain?

What-is-Milgrain

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?

We have many styles of engagement rings and accessories that showcase this beautiful vintage inspired detail, here are a few of our favorites.

What-is-Milgrain-Honey-Wedding-Set

What-is-Milgrain-Amore-Wedding-Bands

What-is-Milgrain-Luxury-Engagement-Ring

What-is-Milgrain-Antique-Pendant

Engagement Rings for an Active Lifestyle

Engagement-Rings-for-an-Active-Lifestyle

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.  

 

DO’s/Don’ts

 

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.

Engagement Rings for an Active Lifestyle | 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.

Engagement Rings for an Active Lifestyle | Stacked Bands 

Center Stone:

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. 

Stone Shape:

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. 

Accenting Stones:

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. 

 Metal:

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.

How to Secretly Find Her Ring Size

You’ve met THE ONE and are ready to purchase THE RING, only now you are left wondering how to find her ring size? If you are wanting to keep this a secret, as most often do, don’t fret friends, we are here to help! 

How to Secretly Find Her Ring Size

First remember approximately 6,000 people a day get engaged, many have come before you and successfully pulled it off – You’ve got this! We created this simple chart to help you secretly find her ring size – just follow these easy steps…

 

How to Secretly Find His or Her Engagement Ring Size - using any ring she wears.  

Step 1 – Borrow one of your partner’s rings

  • This would all be much easier if you could find a ring that your partner already wore on their ‘engagement ring finger’ however, that is typically not the case – which is why we created this helpful chart, so any ring you can get your hands on will do. 

Step 2 – Make an impression

  • Make an impression. If your significant other in the habit of leaving any of their rings lying about, make an impression of one. A bar of soap, a piece of clay or even a piece of bread can be used to take a reliable measurement.
  • Trace the inside. Tracing the inside of the ring on a piece of paper, can typically be used to determine an accurate measurement.
  • Try it on for size. Simpler still just put the ring on your own finger. Push it down as far as it will go and then mark the spot with a pen, or try to remember how far down it went. 

Step 3 – Get Sized!

  • Once you have done step 2, it is time to get your impression sized. Take the ring, soap, paper or your finger to your local jeweler and have it sized. 

Helpful Tips:

  • It’s easier for a jeweler to size down a band than to size up, so err on the larger side if you are unsure. 
  • A band with diamonds is harder to size than a plain metal band – and sometimes impossible if eternity (diamonds all the way around), so consider this if you are unsure how accurate your sizing is. 
  • It’s common for dominant hands to be slightly larger in size – keep this in mind if the ring you choose is one they wear on their dominant hand.

 


 

 If you are close, but the sizing isn’t quite right…

We hope you found these tools useful in assisting you with finding the right size for your PERFECT RING! If for any reason the sizing was a little (or a lot) off, we are here to help. At MiaDonna, we are full-service jewelers and are happy to assist you with resizing.

If you would like to send your ring in for sizing, please contact us and we can set it up for you.

It is very important that you know the exact size you would like your ring to be resized to, as sizing up or down more than half a size may compromise the integrity of the ring design. Should you need sizing that is more than half a size up or down, then we may need to evaluate your mounting first.

2015 – The Year for Lab-Grown Diamonds!

2015 - The Year for Lab-Grown Diamonds by MiaDonna CEO Anna-Mieke AndersonMiaDonna CEO, Anna-Mieke Anderson shares what an amazing year this has been for lab-grown diamonds! I am thrilled to be one of the industry pioneers forging this new era in diamonds. We are doing things now that I had only dreamed about doing 10 years ago.

Industry News – Lab-Grown Diamonds:

As 2015 comes to a close, I see the diamond and jewelry industry at a tipping point. Lab-grown diamonds are becoming increasingly more mainstream and consumers are demanding jewelry and diamond companies be held to much higher ethical standards. I am personally elated to see my vision of a greener diamond culture becoming a reality.

Over the last decade, the earth-mined diamond industry has underestimated and ridiculed us as they continued to trade in conflict diamonds. Through it all I have continued to stand by my mission – to create the highest quality, most beautiful, eco-friendly diamond jewelry available, while helping repair the lives and land damaged by the unethical conflict diamond industry. And now it gives me great joy to say we are doing things they never saw coming.

We are creating conflict-free type IIa lab-created diamonds in a safe modern-day lab environment that are better than earth-mined diamonds in EVERY. SINGLE. WAY. Up to 32ct in size, D in color, flawless in clarity and 30-40% less than earth-mined equivalents.

International Grown Diamond Association:

I am excited to announce the formation of the International Grown Diamond Association (IGDA) – a not-for-profit organization that represents the lab-grown diamond industry. The creation of this association is a significant historical milestone for the diamond industry as a whole. I am honored to be a founding member and to have the opportunity to work with a team of like-minded industry professionals, where together we can push for a socially responsible diamond industry.

 

The Greener Diamond Foundation:

With the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, this year has been a real rollercoaster of emotions. When we learned that our friends and team in Liberia were Ebola free we were ecstatic. However, we recently found out that the virus is back, creating new panic among locals. The hardships these people have endured and continue to endure weighs heavily on my mind and heart. It has been estimated that the Ebola outbreak has created 7,000 orphaned children and with most orphanages at capacity, local families are now volunteering to take in extra children.

While past efforts for The Greener Diamond (TGD) have been mainly concentrated on agriculture and creating job skills, we felt that switching gears and creating an additional project to help with the effects of Ebola on diamond mining communities was the best way for diamond consumers to help during this hard time. TGD has organized emergency supplies and are also helping by paying the tuition fees for many children who lost their parents as a result of Ebola.

Through this endeavor, we connected with an orphanage in Liberia, which has led us to fund our next farming project – The Elwou Orphanage Agricultural Project.

This farm will be linked to the Elwou Orphanage in Monrovia, Liberia. The orphanage currently hosts 80 children and six primary caregivers. With the assistance of our Liberia team, Youth Action International (YAI), the goal of this project will be to help this orphanage to grow food and raise livestock for self-consumption and resale. Unfortunately, until now this orphanage has been relying on aid given to them or begging to survive. This new flourishing farm will make this orphanage self-sustainable.

I sincerely want to thank all our MiaDonna & Company customers and supporters. You made this happen!!

The MiaDonna team:

I cannot end the year without thanking my talented team. I am beyond blessed to work with such an amazing group of people. It is one thing to have your own vision, but it is even more special when complete strangers decide that they want to work hard for your vision too. I couldn’t imagine being on this adventure with a better group of people. A BIG heartfelt THANK YOU to the MiaDonna team for wanting to “hang” with me every day, while helping to change the world – one eco-friendly diamond at a time.

The Future – 2016 and Beyond:

With 2015 being such an industry game changer, we know our future with lab-grown diamonds is unstoppable. The industry is evolving and as always MiaDonna is at the forefront. We will continue to be a resource for consumers while passionately participating in global efforts to end the trade of conflict diamonds. We don’t want consumers to fall out of love with diamonds, we want them to fall in love with this new era in diamonds by providing them with the most beautiful and scientifically advanced conflict-free diamonds available.

We don’t answer to shareholders, board members, mining companies, or De Beers. We will continue our promise to be a socially responsible advocate for diamond mining communities, global societies, and the earth. We are about making things right in 2016 and beyond!

Cheers!

Anna-Mieke

 


 

Anna-Mieke’s TOP Engagement Ring Trends for 2016:

 

Last year Anna-Mieke predicted Ovals would be hot and mix and match sets would be in – and boy-oh-boy was she right – her engagement ring predictions for 2015 were all spot on! 

 

2015 - The Year for Lab-Grown Diamonds | 2016 Trends Stacked Bands

LOVING Anna-Mieke’s trend forecast for 2016….share with us in the comments if you agree!

  • Two tone rings! Mixed metals are trending and I know they will be BIG in 2016 too – especially combinations of rose and white gold.
  • Fancy color center stones! This is a trend I see carrying over from 2015. Whether colored diamonds or gemstones, I predict more couples will choose colored stones for their engagement rings in 2016.

2016 is all about embracing your style and being unique!
