could you get a really thin spacer?

If you’re speaking of metal on metal rings and not diamonds then I don’t think there is anything you can do. I’m OCD so I wear the combination the same so only one side of each ring gets scratched. Then when I buff the scratches with a sunshine cloth or the jeweler I switch the order…

If you have gold rings, they are going to get scratched and lose luster over the years anyway.

I simply had my set dipped in white gold again.

I also take my rings to be professionally cleaned and buffed.

snickerdoodles:  Unfortunately no ring will ever be scratch-free, and like Sandeek mentioned, if it’s metal to metal, there’s not much you can do about it.  You can always get a polishing cloth to remove light surface scrapes and keep it shiny.  If it’s the diamonds that are scratching, I second MeiFrancis‘s suggesting on getting a very thin band as a spacer.

You could get a super low spacer, maybe it would still fit with the heart shape. Mine is a lot lower than my band.

I make sure to always put my rings on the same way, so that the scratches are at least always on the inside and I can’t see them.

I also get my rings checked at least once every 6 months and I get them re-dipped about once a year.  Re-dipping = brand new and scratch free again!  🙂

snickerdoodles:  

I have a lot of sympathy for your ring twisting issue. I feel like I am constantly turning my rings back where they are supposed to be. 

I may solder my rings together as well. I’ve recently lost some weight and my rings are a bit looser. After I see how they fit after losing the last ten pounds, I may do what you are doing.

snickerdoodles:  this is why i wanted a platinum ering and wedding band.

gold is a softer metal and will wear down over time.  if you weigh your ring now and in 10 years the gold ring will weigh less while the platinum ring with weigh the same even if it has little dings in it.

at least this is what i was told.
