Vintage Style Octagon Diamond Halo RingPosted by Joseph McGarr on
Another favourite to recently depart the workshop. A classic delight - this unusual octagon halo ring is the epitome of vintage style. If you love vintage style jewellery we always recommend going for a milgrain edge. It is a beautiful delicate finishing touch which harps back in history.
What is a milgrain edge?
A series of tiny balls running across the edging surrounding the centre stone and outer edges.
Our stone setter adds the milgrain after the diamonds have been set. He does this using a graining tool. He creates the little balls by pushing the tool into the metal and moving it in a circular motion. Once a row of balls starts coming together the effect is stunning and the perfect finishing touch to a piece.
Although the milgrain in this example is very fine, it is also a finish which gentlemen's wedding rings can have, but using larger beads of metal.
If milgrain is a finish that you like the sound of, see if it can be added to an existing piece of your jewellery or let us know to include it on your design.
We have examples of jewellery in our showroom with various weights of milgrain on, pop in to see us or browse our collections online to see the different effects.
