I’m actually not a fan of soldering because sometimes I like to just wear my wedding band if I am working out or doing something else active.

But if you definitely want to, I’d take your rings to a few different jewelers and ask their opinion.

An experienced jeweler will be able to give you advice on sizing, etc. if you decide to solder your rings.

 

i have my rings soldered.  love it….plus, the other good thing about soldering your rings is that when it comes to appraisal/insurance, it is then counted as ONE ring, so you only need

to purchase one ring policy.

I soldered my rings (3 of them), no regrets. I just hated hearing them rubbing and knowing it was wearing them down faster and/or causing damage. I really like having them soldered which surprised me as I was so resistant to it for so long before! 

I have a spare band & stackers that I wear running/the gym/in the ocean/anytime I do not want to wear my main rings. I am no more inclined to subject my wedding band to those kind of abuses or risks than my “ering”. My last set was unsoldered as I thought I would want to wear the band alone sometimes…in two years that never happened. If I did not want to wear ering for some reason, I did not want the band on either for the same reason!

The best one to ask about whether to size up is the jeweler, but they may indeed recommend doing so as two rings soldered together fit tighter than two rings not soldered, and they will prefer to solder rings that are evenly matched in size. You might not need to get speed bumps added to the second one though since it is not going to spin and the speed bumps are already in one ring.

I am probably the only one in the world with this opinion, but I don’t mind my rings spinning and the diamond eternity bands (2) being uneven or on the back of my hand. I do understand that there is less wear and tear on the gold bands if they aren’t constantly rubbing against each other.
