Are you doing it?
I don’t expect to wear my rings separately. I never take my e-ring off for the gym, I’m a teacher so I wear it to work, etc. so it makes sense to bond them because I’m told if I don’t, the platinum on platinum friction will damage my e-ring. But it I do bond them, what if I decide some day to just wear one? My ring is hand engraved all the way around so unbinding them would show (although Tacori will fix their engraving, at a cost)… so I want to see what other bees are doing
here are my rings to show you what I mean about damaging the engraving…
ETA: I have no idea why this was filed in waiting.. my wedding is in 6 weeks! haha

I have run the idea few my head a few times but for now I decided against it… I might want to just wear my band on vacations. I’m terrified to lose my diamond. Here they are together.

I voted no…I’m not engaged yet (hence why I’m checking the “waiting” boards 😛 weird that it got posted in the wrong place!) but I definitely know that I want the option to only wear my wedding ring if the mood strikes. I am sort of planning on getting a plain wedding ring so that when I’m doing yardwork or other such things that I don’t want to wear my delicate e-ring doing, I can still have one ring on that I don’t have to worry about. At the very least though, if I do get a diamond wedding ring, I can at least still take the e-ring off and not have to worry about the main stone getting knocked around.
If you’re unsure about it I would wait, wear them together un-soldered for a few months after the wedding, then see if you find yourself wearing them separately or if you never find the need/desire to. If the latter then you can be pretty sure that soldering would be fine!

I voted no. I’m trying to get into nursing school, and I don’t plan on wearing my engagement ring to work after I’m licensed. I realize that plenty of nurses sport diamond rings, but as an infant, I was scratched by a diamond ring and still have a scar on the side of my face. : (

I have three rings and I had them bonded together. I don’t forsee ever wearing them separately. To me, they are inseparable, just like our marriage vows, so not bonding them together and wearing them separately just didn’t make sense to me.

I have a jacket that my engagement ring snaps in to, so I don’t have to get mine bonded. I would though, if I didn’t have a jacket. I don’t like the idea of the bands spinning around sepearatey and such.

@Miss Seersucker: what does a jacket mean??

@kingytobe: I think she is talking about what they also call a ring guard or wrap. I know some people use those as their wedding ring

No, because due to financial issues my wedding band will be pretty inexpensive and FI wants to replace it later.

I am undecided. Like you, I dont think I’d ever wear them separate, but *just* in case?? I’m going to see how it goes with it separate and then decide from there.

I was on the fence at first, but after giving it a go with them not bonded together for five weeks…I’m definitely getting them bonded together. I’m always adjusting the wedding band and it’s starting to drive me a little bit crazy 😉
ETA: I don’t think I’ll ever want to wear either ring by itself…I just love them together too much 🙂

I had my rings soldered together. Basically you can’t seperate them once it is done so don’t really plan on it. I don’t wear my rings when I work out, clean, shower, etc and they are both diamonds so I wouldn’t wear either at those times. If I want a ring to wear all the time later, I will probably buy a plain one.

I didn’t do it and I don’t think I ever will. One of my friends had hers bonded together and it was yellow on the back of the rings which was a total turnoff to me. I don’t mind the spinning, it gives me a reason to check and make sure my diamond is still there.

@SophiaPetrillo: I’m always adjusting mine and it’s starting to drive me nuts! I’m still on the fence about getting them bonded together and I’m not even sure why – I don’t ever plan on wearing them separately. I think the idea of it being permanent is holding me back.
