I want to soldier my bands together to make a guard, so I can slide my e-ring in and out… I’m afraid to though 🙁

@Tori5810:  no.. I have pretty details on the inside of my bands… I guess I’m afraid sodering them I’ll never see them again :-

I’m waiting to see how my e-ring goes with a wedding band until I decide if I want to solder or not. But since we haven’t even bought our bands yet, it will be a long time before I figure that out!

Somewhat unrelated…solder is such a weird word!

I keep meaning to solder mine.  about how much does it usually cost?

I’m planning to.  Nothing bothers me more than spinning/things not being aligned, so having them separate is not an option.

Soldering my rings was a great thing!!! They are perfectly aligned, don’t rub, and my e-ring spins way less. I wear other stacked bands when I want something low profile. It was a great excuse to buy separate bands 😉

My set from my ex was soldered and I loved that it made it just one ring that was always lined up perfectly.

I intend to do the same with my set now.  I just had it all sized and mounted and I made them send all 3 back separately at first because I wanted to be able to inspect each one and be sure I was happy before I had them put together.  Now the next time I have to have them sent off to be dipped, I’ll be having them soldered as well.

FYI – soldering isn’t permanent if you don’t want it to be.  My first set I had taken back apart when I divorced so I could sell the rings separately and they looked as if they had never been touched when I got them back afterward. So if you change your mind, or upgrade a band or something… you CAN have them undone!

I’ve always wondered, where do they typically do the soldering when they solder rings together? At the top, or on the part that would be underneath, like @msbibliotecaria:‘s appears to be?

I won’t be soldering mine since I got a plain band so that I wouldn’t worry about spinning and I need to be able to wear them separately sometimes for higher impact activities where I don’t want my diamonds/prongs knocked around.
