Nguyen:  If it were me, I’d probably do a spacer just beause I don’t like gaps. They are all going to rub on each other no matter what if they aren’t soldered together.

Could you have them put very small round ump outs on the bottom of your basket for your e-ring – sort of like the sizing beads just a very slight nudge out that would keep them from rubbing but not take away from the look?

I would solder them but thats me a spacer will still rub which will create damage … But if your agist soldering which many bees are i would goto local jeweler not the mall but real jeweler who does work in shop talk them see what they say your options are and go from there your rings are very beautiful good luck 🙂

Nguyen:  That’s what my wedding set will be like. I thought if they’re the same metals they won’t do any damage?

If it were me I would solder them together. You can always get another band to wear if you’re doing something that could damage your set.Some spacers look nice, but it can ruin the look IMO

Nguyen:  I hate gaps, so I had the sides of my prongs taken in to acommodate the w-band sitting flush.

@ceebree what does your ring look like with the prongs taken in? My ring is being made in Istanbul where I currently live and it’s not typical to wear wedding ring and engagement ring together. When we picked up my ering and tried wedding rings on, none of them sat really well so he said he’d make one with the prongs different to see if that works. He has never done this before and I’m a bit surprised he’s willing to make such a ring without me actually asking but he’s a jewelry maker on the wholesale level so maybe it makes a difference… Anyway, at, it’d be great to show him an example before he goes to the work of seeing what he can make.

Nguyen:  You should definitely do what ceebree did and have them shave the prongs down a bit at the base so the band will sit flush. It costs less than $50 I believe.
