This intricate jewellery setting, created by rolling a very small wheel along the edge of a piece of metal, creates a series of fine beads placed decoratively on the surface of a ring or pendant. This setting serves the double purpose of helping secure the main gemstone in place. Millegrain translates as “a thousand grains” in French and became especially popular around the turn of the 20th century.
