What exactly is milgrain? In French, the term translates to a ‘thousand grains’, which is the perfect description for this intricate technique. For hundreds of years, jewellers and artisans have used specialised milgrain tools to form small balls or beads on a metal surface to create a decorative finish or border.
Milgrain might just possibly be that last defining detail that completes your ultimate wedding or engagement ring. Reminiscent of a time passed by, milgrain will help to bring to life that antique or vintage style ring you have been dreaming of. Or even personalise a newer and modern style of ring.
Jewellers use milgrain to form lovely little trails of shiny metal beads to perfectly frame your diamond or to highlight the delicate craftsmanship of the piece. Still popular today, women love milgrain for the fine feminine style this technique offers. Celebrities have fallen in love with this trend; Natalie Portman’s and Katie Holme’s hands have both been adorned with stunning milgrain rings.
If you are after a vintage style ring or a delicate feminine piece, milgrain can be the perfect touch to bring your dream ring to life.

We had 3 rings made by Larsen Jewellery and were looked after by Alex Somerville. Turnaround times were honoured, promises kept and getting in for an appointment at short notice when it suited our schedule wasn't an issue. Our rings were made specifically to our own preference, with good advice from our jeweller where we needed it. All of the rings are wonderful and we're very happy with our results. I've no problem recommending Alex, we couldn't have asked for better.

The team at Larsen Jewellers were very professional from design right through to finish. They were very understanding during a difficult 2020 and their level of communication and professionalism throughout was superb. The ring was everything we'd hoped for. It matched our design perfectly and the finished product was fantastic. I can't rate them highly enough!
