I’m curious to hear people’s thoughts on fusing their wedding band & engagement ring together. My e-ring has a center diamond with three very small side stones on either side. My wedding band has a row of small diamonds that stop at about the same place the side-stones on my e-ring diamonds stop…. when they are lined up. The problem is just that, they’re almost never lined up! They’re always slip sliding around my fingers! I had lunch with a friend today who has rings very similar to mine. I complimented her on them (and mentally noted how well they were lined up) and she mentioned that she had just had them fused together. The more I thought about doing that with mine, the more excited I got. I called the jewlery store we bought them from and I can get it done for free! I want to go tonight but before I jump into it I wonder if there are any negatives…. Thoughts, ladies?

My grandmother gave me her wedding set to get married with and hers was fused together. She said she did it because she was so paranoid that she was going to lose one of them.
In the end I think it’s a good idea.

I had the same problem and for that reason I’m getting my rings soldered together over christmas break. I wasn’t planning on it, because I occasionally like to wear only my band if I’m doing something dirty or dangerous.
I think the colution for me to get another band to wear occasionally 🙂
Maybe I can convince hubby for a wedding or anniversary present.

depends on the ring! my e ring looked best with the diamonds going around both sides, so we got an eternity diamond ring. if we didn’t, it would have looked a little odd if the rings weren’t lined up the right way. If the ring can handle it, sure. Mine would look crazy.

I have mine attached to eachother. I understand if people don’t want to wear their engagement ring all the time but I like wearing all my diamonds at once!

A lot of times people have to do it b/c if you don’t the prongs can get loose by the scraping that the rings do to each other.

I am pretty sure that I will leave them separate so that I can just wear the band sometimes. My engagement ring is set high, so I am always afraid that I am going to knock it around. That being said, I like the idea of having the two sit right there together.

My ring band doesn’t have diamonds all the way around so I had mine soldered to have the rings perfectly lined up. I also read that if you don’t have them soldered, the rings wear on each other. I’m happy I got mine put together.

I think it’s a matter of personal taste. If you are excited about it, then do it! That’s great that they’ll do it for free. I don’t want to do that with mine because I love the little bit of space there will be between the two rings, and also I can imagine many times when I’ll want to wear the wedding band alone, for a simple and beautiful look that I won’t have to worry about as much if we’re doing something active, or dirty, or dangerous (international travel is a good reason to worry about carrying around something worth multiple thousands of dollars on your hand.)

I want to be able to wear just my wedding band if I choose to in the future, so it’s not for me.

I personally would like to keep them separate. That, and my ring designer would probably not ever do that for me…

Ive considered soldering mine together for your exact same reason. I haven’t done it though beccause I like being able to wear just my wedding band sometimes. I actually left my wedding band a size too big. My E-ring holds it on and when my finger swells I can just take my E-ring off and my wedding ring still fits. That was especially helpful when I was pregnant. Also, I plan on upgrading my wedding band someday (to a wrap) and not soldering will make that easier.
I just wish there was a less permanant way to keep them from going all crooked!

My ring is part of a set, so the engagement ring and wedding band actually snap together – the jeweler showed me when we went in to get it sized. So I won’t need to do anything to them. My mom had her rings fused together I think, but it wasn’t something that ever really crossed my mind for mine (even before I saw them together).

My mom doesn’t have them soddered together, but when I found out about the idea I was very happy. I’ll definitely be doing this just to save my finger from chaffing (they seem to rub together oddly). :o)

It’s not for me because I know I’ll want to wear just the simple band sometimes. I do think it’s pretty cool when people do it! I love that people do a variety of things with their wedding & engagement rings… it’s so fun to check everybody out! 🙂
