    I would choose to use a spacer, as I like the option of wearing my rings separately or in a different order (especially if you ever add an anniversary ring).

    i actually very much like that idea— I am starting to feel like i have that same problem but do not want to solder my rings, necessarily.

    maybe i will talk to DH and see what his thoughts are on the spacer!

    I prefer the look without the spacer.  It’s just so pretty to have your clear stones next to one another!

    I like the spacer! I also went with a spacer with my set and I love that I can wear my wedding band alone when I want to.

    LOOOOOOVE the way it looks with the spacer! Plus, like others have said, you can rearrange the order to suit your mood – or add one at a later date!

    I think it looks too cluttered with the spacer.  Would it be at all possible to find a thinner spacer (or one with more of a pronounced knife edge to give it less visual profile)?  I think soldering is a bad idea, so finding a spacer that works for you would be ideal.  I also think the spacer looks odd because it has less height than the two other bands.

    Have you talked to your jeweler?  Is there anything that can be done with the band to keep it from scratching?

    …you know…if you have them set the prongs higher, they won’t dig into the band and you won’t need the spacer….I had my ring set really high so it would catch more light and flash and sparkle more…plus when I soldered the bands were flush…is that an option for you?
