If it’s done correctly, the solder won’t show.  And you can reverse it (I had mine separated) but sometimes there will be a small loss of metal to the band.  They actually take them apart to resize them anyway, so it’s not a big deal to do it.

Thats what most who solder do, the benefit being as you suggested, using one ring, and its freshly cleaned polished and dipped.  The only problem with that strategy is that if there’s an issue with it, a delay, or a mistake, you run the risk of not having your ring back in time for the wedding.

My solder doesn’t show. It’s on the inside of the rings and is very subtle.

I had my rings soldered after the wedding.  I absolutely love it.  I hated having to constantly straighten my rings.

i am so glad that mine is satured, but I also have a very customized ring so it was necessary. They dont fit perfectly together though so its not perfect, but the best they could do. Its only noticable if you stare at it or are looking for it. I would ask your jewler what their recommendation is.

I am having mine soldered because of the spinning ring thing and also when your two or three rings rub together they will eventually damage each other (it takes time) but mine already have scratches on them from wear.

I thought I’d pop back in to add that I’m seriously considering doing it now too, and I was dead-set against it at first.  I’d about a month away from my one year anniversary, and the milgrain on my wedding band is almost completely gone from rubbing against my e ring.  I haven’t lost a diamond yet, but if it’s this bad after only one year, it’s obviously only a matter of time before I do.

I have the same problem with my bands.  I bought two curved bands that fit very nicely around my e-ring.  As my e-ring is heirloom I didn’t see saudering as an option.  I want the option of giving it to one of my children or grandchildren down the road.  I bought ring snuggies, (came in a pack with many different sizes) and cut the best one in half.  It fits nicely around all of my bands and holds them in place and isnt really that notice-able.  So far all my tests have gone well, but we will see in a month how well it works in the long run!
