How cool! I would leave them soldered and wear them as is on my right hand occasionally – like when you are going out somewhere nice. Those rings say “take me to the opera!” Lol. Does the stack fit your right hand??

Wow! That is truly gorgeous!  I can understand not wanting to change it. Can u post a pic of it on your hand?

I would separate the two tiara styled rings and wear them together on my right hand. I wouldn’t think of rhodium plating. When yellow gold is rhodium plated, it “bleeds” through very quickly – much more so than white gold. There is real beauty in the rich hue of yellow for that piece.

I would consider matching my watch/earrings etc. by going two-toned. That way, you have the best of both worlds.

howtobeawife:  I think your ring is absolutely stunning. Are the ends by the crown high enough to slip a flat Platinum band under, so that the bands would be “hugging” the body of the ring? 

If so, the Platinum could peak through the scalloped part of the crown. 

Please see how that looks before you change anything. It’s just too precious as it is to change anything at all.

wrkbrk:  Yes! My thought exactly!! 🙂 “Take me to the opera!” 

howtobeawife:  I would leave them soldered for a bit, if they stay that way after resizing. Then, if you find you never wear it like that, you could separate them and then play around with them. Stack them all kinds of different ways until you find a combo that you like. What a lovely thing to inherit.
