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 went to Larsen’s Sydney store based on the fantastic experience we had at the Melbourne store when creating our wedding rings. We had a similarly great experience with Ornella at the Sydney store and would highly recommend using Larsen when creating your own jewellery.

Rod has now helped us with an engagement ring, wedding band, and eternity band. His understanding throughout each process was unbelievable, and the quality of each ring exceeded my wildest expectations. Thank you so much for an incredible experience and three beautiful rings.

The team at Larsen's made the designing of a custom engagement ring fantastic and both myself and my future wife were ecstatic with the final product. From the first meeting to the final product they made the whole process effortless. Communicating everything you need to know to make the perfect ring. Great quality in both gems and knowledge. Special thanks to both Alex and Jacinta in the Melbourne store for putting their great knowledge and expertise to amazing use.

I almost lost my dad last year in a terrible accident. He had a beautiful ring with diamonds that snapped and I wanted to get it made into my wedding band. Fleur was absolutely amazing. She understood the sentimental value this ring had to me and made the perfect ring to match my engagement ring, while using all of my father's ring. Within 5weeks they turned my dads broken ring into a beautiful ring for me. They kept me informed the entire way and I couldn't be happier with the result. I cant wait for our wedding day next week so I can wear this beautiful piece forever. I cant wait to go back and get my 1yr anniversary ring made. I would highly recommend larsens jewellery for any peices you are wanting to make into reality.
