    Do you ever wear one without the other?

    I personally do not care for soldered rings.  It reminds me of the rings you can buy on those round tables in the middle of Jcpenny- I guess because they’re usually a chunky ring with several bands put together.  I also like to have the ability to wear my wedding band on its own.

    Mine are soldered and I love it! ..its so nice not having your wedding band spin in the opposite direction as your engagement ring..they just fit and look better in general

    Yes, the important question is whether u want to wear them separately at any time now or in the future. If the answer is no, u will be extremely happy with soldering. It keeps them from sliding around and damaging each other, keeps the both right side up, keeps them together so u can’t lose one. But if u like to only wear one, or change up what u pair with one or the other, I’d say dont do it. 

    I did it, as I have three bands now and it was a necessity. I have no regrets whatsoever.

    The only reason I am not planning on soldering my rings together is that I plan to wear just my wedding band (it will be plain) when I go camping, hiking, fishing, to the gym, gardening, etc. But I will wear the set together all other times. Otherwise, I’d solder them in a heartbeat!

    don’t sodder.  my set is channel set diamonds on both ering and band as well.  when i travel, i only wear my wedding band so i wouldn’t want them soddered together.

    when i bought the band, i wanted them to sit flush with each other.  they told me they would have to notch out the ering and then sodder to keep integrity.

    i did not like this.

    i don’t mind the gap now, and if i have to turn my wedding band around because the diamonds are on the bottom, it is not a big deal.

    i’ve been married just over 6 months.  no one is looking at my hand anymore and it doesn’t bother me.

    I actually had to get mine soldered only a month after the wedding because the shape my set is, they were scratching and scuffing each other up badly. Don’t regret it thoguh. 😀

    MrsSpagan:  It isn’t expensive, cost me about 32$ to get it done and it only took about 15 minutes at our local jeweler. But I didn’t have a brand that required it to get sent in.

    My wedding ring is a single ring, but lots of people have said it looks like three rings soldered together at first glance. I wear my ring about 90% of the time. The 10% I don’t wear it I have a yellow gold plated tungsten band that I bought on ebay for like $25.00 that I wear in it’s place.

    If I was in your position and was constantly adjusting my rings I would definitely get them soldered and purchse a cheap backup ring for days where you don’t or can’t wear your whole set.
