    Default Milanese Loop- Darken/Make Less Shiny

    I have a milanese loop band, which I love- very light and comfortable. But I wish it was less shiny and attention getting, especially in the sun, where it is super shiny. Is there any way to make it less shiny?

    Shiny or not, that band is going to draw attention—in my humble opinion.

    Maybe a jeweler has a way making it dull. If it's too much bling for you sell it or return it

    Some 00 or 000 steel wool will give the band a brushed finish and 'mute' the highly reflective look. Start with 00. Rub the steel wool along the length of the band, back and fourth to accentuate a brushed look. Use light pressure and check your progress frequently.

    If the resulting look is too dull, you can use 0000 or 00000 steel wool to 'brighten' it up. A jeweler or hobbyist could use jeweler's rough to polish, but that wouldn't be your goal. Be sure to blow out any leftover debris.
