LOOOOOOOOVE your band ! K, I wouldn’t do it ! Don’t do it ! It’s such a lovely option to be able to have 2 rings.  And what if one day you want to wear your band alone? What if you want to pass down these rings to your family and soldering only means you only have one to pass down? Just thinking aloud because I am talking myself out of it too ! LOL !

I LOVE that band! I think it could work. Just talk to your local jewelry store (not a chain) they tend to do more stuff like that!

I love your choice of wedding band!  I agree with the pp’s who say not to solder.  I have my gold band, a 5-stone anniversary band and a three-stone ring for my ring finger.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve worn the band alone and then every other combination. 

The biggest concern is the band rubbing the side of the engagement ring and compromising the e-ring setting.  It may not be a problem from the look I see in your picture.  No matter what, just have your rings checked periodically and you should be fine.

@LittleAudrey: ah, yes, the wear and tear argument. I don’t know. Do they really make rings so shoddy now that they are not durable? Yikes, I hope not !

my purpose for looking for a ring like that is so I don’t have to solder them! the ring can spin and I won’t care.

but if you really wanted to, a jeweler could find a way to connect them. maybe by putting a couple of connecting pieces of metal in the underside, where it wouldn’t be very visible.

also note: soldering is not permanent. before you get your rings soldered, make sure your jeweler believes they can be separated if you want them to. if they say no, take your business elsewhere. I used to do metal work, I know how soldering works 🙂
