Adding engraving to vintage plat band- WWYD?
Hi everyone!

I recently got a 1940's plat band that I adore, but I have decided needs a little extra oomph. I want to have some engraving added to the profile and the shank, and milgrain added along the channel. I am super excited about this plan, but the only catch is I have no idea what to have engraved! Does anyone have any engraving pattern suggestions or inspiration photos? I love pretty much everything engraved, especially super intricate engraving Heart

I will probably let my trusty local jeweler have a crack at this- he does pretty good engraving work- but, I am interested in other options. Any vendor ideas?

Sorry about the giant blurry photos!

I'm no help but I love milgrain and engraving. I just google "engraved band" under images and viola you have a million options to pick from.

Thanks for your reply, Olivejuice. Way to break out the common sense! I have found a couple engraving patterns I like. Anyone have any thoughts? I am just looking for an inspiration photo to show my jeweler Smile

I love the floral scrolly pattern.

I love that forget me not-orange blossom style engraving. But I'm a pretty flowery person when all is said and done.

I covet Jenn and MrsK's engraved bands. Jenn's is custom done by the talented bench guy at Schubach's. MrsK, is yours custom as well, or do I remember yours being a stock Stuller that came as a lovely surprise in quality for stock?

I'll see if I can dig up photos for you, Merry.

Ok, here is Jenn's:

RE: The Lotus has landed :)
Thanks, guys! Hadley- thank you for the pics. They are all beautiful! I have seen Jenn's band on BTD, and maybe Mrs.K's (?)- I remember because they are exquisite, and I would love one just like them! I think I will probably end up showing my jeweler a couple different pics I love and see if he can do something similar. If not, I will definitely keep Schubach's in mind. I have heard great things about them.

Stardust and MicheleZ- I am a pretty flowery gal too, haha. I really like the flowery scroll pattern a lot. My husband and I do love to garden together... I guess the same could be said for the leaves pattern too though!

I never thought I was a flowery kinda a girl but a lot of stuff I love seems to have it.

MrsK's was mine, and was done by our Teo. Mine was done at a new high bench we were testing out. The engraving on both is fab.
