    Keep them separate for now. Make sure you really WANT them soldered together. You may like that they aren’t stuck together, just so you know. It doesn’t hurt to wait and see.

    We are planing on a weekend wedding, and then leaving for our honeymoon on the tuesday after or something like that.  I decided that as much as I love my rings, I really dont want to lose them in the ocean so I am going to take them to the jewler so solder and clean while we are gone.  I figure that way I know they are safe and they will be all pretty when I get home.  For the honeymoon I am going to get a plain band to wear that may or may not match what the boy gets. I will then have a plain band to wear for golf and anywhere my diamonds dont need to go….

    I have never even heard about soldering the e-ring and wedding band together… even one i know has them seperated… and i will probably be the same way… though this is interesting new information!  ^_^

    Miss Apricot: I think I could have written this post! Are you in my brain?? Ha, anyway, I’m thinking about getting a "jacket" for my ring and was wondering the same as you. I hate going more than 5 minutes without my ring, so I don’t know how I would feel going a few days without it. This is something I’ll probably write a list of pros and cons about (if we got the jacket route). It seems like such a little thing but really it’s kind of big, ya know?

    I couldnt tell you which is better!

    I personally dont think I would want to solder my rings together because I have my e ring and 2 bands, and onmy e ring there is detailing on the insides that I dont want to loose because of the soldering!

    I do understand its nice because it all fits together better, stays together etc, I just dont think I could do it

    It’s pretty common..my moms are soldered togehter. I think it’s more common with the older styles, though. nowadays women don’t buy interlocking rings as much (guards, wraps, etc) like they used to. I saw VERY FEW of these styles when i was out and about ring shopping it up. It’s ALL about the stack nowadays

    FYI =]

    I was told that too.  It’s in the best interest of the ring because otherwise they bang against eachother all the time and tear each other up.  I have to take my ring in TWO weeks before the wedding (because we’re traveling before) to get mine sodered.  It’s two bands on either side of my e-ring and a weird shape, so she said the pictures won’t come out nice if we don’t have it sodered (one will be ascew or they’ll come apart, etc).  I’m going to miss my ring 🙁
