My ering is from one place and custom wedding band from another, are yours soldered together? I’m wondering if it’ll void any warranty. I’ll have to inquire about that. I’m debating on whether or not to solder and a coworker made a good point today. I don’t remember her exact wording, but it was why let one sit when you can wear both? It doesn’t do any good just sitting there in the drawer.
Anywho, are you glad you soldered them? Do you regret it? I take mine off when I get home because I don’t want to scratch my daughter with them.
TIA! pictures always welcome.

@Diamond1031: I was wondering this myself! I will have 3 bands total and are going to sit flush and I really want to soulder mine.

@Diamond1031: Mine are at the jewelry store now getting done. Solitaire ering from one store, Verragio half eternity from another. I’m hoping it turns out ok.

@Diamond1031: My e-ring came from one jeweler and the bands from another. I want to do this before the wedding due to us leaving for Cancun the next day and I don’t want to risk the chance of loosing one.

I wouldn’t do this… it seems kinda barbaric lol… I like both rings individually and even though I wear them together most of the time, I just can’t imagine melting them together. It like destroys the workmanship on both.

@canarydiamond: I agree… I sometimes wear just my band or e-ring. I like to be able to wear one or the other if need be.

lol wtf barbaric.
I have an ering and two bands and they are all soldered together. I do not regret it at all. I would never wear them separately and it keeps them from spinning and getting all misaligned which drives me nuts.
Unless your ring has a ton of detailing on the edges all the way around, they can be taken apart again if you so choose. It doesn’t destroy anything.

I have 4 rings total–my engagement ring, a spacer ring, a 3-stone diamond band, and my plain 2mm wedding band. The first three were my husband’s late mothers. The engagement ring, and the next two are being soldered now and I should be getting them tomorrow. I wear my plain band alone at the moment and I don’t ever take it off. I like the idea of having the option to keep his mothers rings together (the first three) and having my band separate. I also like not having to adjust my engagement ring and the diamond band every ten seconds because they’re twisted.
If I just had two rings though (as I did for my first marriage), I wouldn’t solder them. I NEVER remove my wedding band for any reason and I sometimes do crafty things with my girls that I don’t want to knock my engagement ring on so I’d remove it. I like having options

I agree with previous posters in that I like to have options. Soldering my rings is not an appealing idea to me at all. And perhaps I am just misunderstanding, but I don’t understand your coworker’s comment. Why would one sit if they were not soldered? Would you be afraid of them damaging one another? I do not have soldered rings and none of them sit; I wear them all most of the time. If anything, not having them soldered gives a person the option of wearing the band for times you might not want to wear the ER (camping, exercise, travelling in questionable areas, etc.) or wearing them all together.

My engagement ring was also my wedding ring, but my husband recently got me an eternity band that I wear with my other ring. I don’t want to solder mine. The eternity band is a 1/4 size bigger than my other ring and it doesn’t spin but if it did it wouldn’t matter since it’s an eternity ring. I might want to add another ring and change up the order or just wear one of them so it’s nice to have options. My 2 rings are very different though. In my first marriage I had a matching set and I soldered those together. I think it just depends on what kind of rings you have and if you want to change it up not.

I definitely had to solder mine because misaligned bands drive me nuts!

@jamiesrichmond: Your set is beautiful. I love the symmetry. I also have double bands And will get my soldered the day before the wedding.

I was glad I soldered mine. Unfortunately, I lost weight, and now the rings don’t fit, so the resizing process will be tougher than if the rings had been unsoldered.

I did not solder mine. I have a solitare and several different bands and love mixing them up.
