I have 3 rings and 2 of those are semi eternity and yeah sometimes they spin but honestly I get bored easy so I left them alone and play with the look alot and it is fun. I do see alot of ppl do it and love it. My personal choice was not to…Good luck and post some pics silly

i actually just sent my rings to be soldered on sunday. i didn’t want to have to keep track of 2 separate rings, i don’t want them moving around on my finger and not lining up correctly, and i’ve heard that rings that are’t soldered rub against each other and that’s not really good for them.

i hate not having my engagement ring on my finger, but i’m so excited that the next time i see it it will be with my wedding band on my wedding day 🙂

How much did it cost to solder them together?

I am not planning on wearing my e-ring forever so I did not have mine soldered together. I like the option to wear my wedding band alone when I choose. Which is usually when we travel. I also opted for a full eternity though so I wouldn’t have to worry about spinning.

I got a quote from a small jeweler of $65.00. We got my rings at Kays with the lifetime warranty but I am very reluctant to let them touch my rings after reading all the horror stories on the boards.

Mine are soldered and I’m glad for it.  I have wanted to wear them together for the past 3 years.  Since my band has diamonds as well, if I do something where I don’t want to wear diamonds, I don’t wear either ring.  It does make the rings a bit tighter in humid weather though.

@Pamelor55:  if you have the work done by anyone other than Kay you lose the warranty.

My first ring yes and it was a nightmare. I don’t have any intention to with my new set.

my rings are from samuel’s. we were told that the cost of soldering was covered under the warranty or whatever, but when we took the rings in they said we had to pay $50.

I have two curved bands and had them soldered to my ering so they won’t spin. I doubt I would ever really wear just the band by itself anyway. Mine didn’t cost anything since I have the warranty on them through Jareds.

I wouldn’t. I’d want to have the option to just wear my band alone if there were days or times when I didn’t feel like wearing my diamond, though those days will probably be far and few. Wink

I had mine soldered a week before the wedding and I don’t regret it at all. It’s a set so I knew I wouldn’t want to wear them individually. I also knew that it would drive me crazy if they spun around and didn’t line up.
