I had to remove the sizing beads for the same reason as you stated. Sorry. Don’t solder them as someday you may want to switch them up a bit.

My first set was soldered together and I wore it that way with absolutely no issues for 32 years.    I also have a euro shank on it and that prevented spinning also.  It NEVER spun.  My jeweler suggested the beads for my upgrade but I elected not to do it because I read on the bee that others had various difficulties with them.  I have a euro shank this time also.  My rings do still spin, just to the side of the top of my finger, but they still need a bit of sizing and I think it will fix that.  

I woulld definitely recommended having them soldered together.  I am not doing it right now to the new set because I am having fun wearing different combinations on different days.

My rings are soldered and it isn’t permanent. My jewelery explained that there are two types of soldering and one is much more permanent and will cause damage if you try to remove it. But I chose the more “light” method so if I ever wanted to separate the rings I could. It really works great for me. We actually did this before our wedding, so I never actually tested to see if spinning would be a problem, but I just knew I was always going to wear them together so I figured soldering would prevent any damage from the rings spinning together all the time in the long run. It’s really comfortable too. My e-ring was made for us and the band is vintage.
