That’s gorgeous!

I disagree with your sister, and like the idea of soldering the e-ring and the gift band so that way you can wear the wedding band alone if you want…

I soldered my wedding band and e-ring together, and Darling Husband and I have been browsing eternity bands for an anniversary gift next year, which I would not solder to the other two, not that i’d ever wear my anniv band alone, but if i just wanted to wear my e-ring and w-band.

What the jeweler who soldered my set together told me is that it IS reversible, if you change your mind. It cost about $40 to get mine soldered at Jared’s and they said it’s not hard for a qualified jeweler to un-solder them if the client changes their mind. Think about it! 🙂

Hi @pansyshell… we didn’t do engravings so I can’t speak to that one!

I got 2 bands that curve around my engagement rind and I am having the 2 bands soldered together into a guard, separate from the engagement ring.

I am not a fan AT ALL of soldering. Give yourself the option! Now you can always play around with whether you want to wear one, two, or three. Also, soldering – especially on intricate bands like yours – runs the risk of permanently damaging the rings. They might look fine while soldering, but once you takem apart, they might never be the same. I personally don’t see the point of soldering. Can someone explain the appeal?

If you’re specific about which is the wedding band, I dont see why not solder the e-ring and gift band together, since you wouldnt wear those two separately, but would wear the wedding band alone.  I can see how that would just make things easier when you take them off.  Personally though, I wouldnt solder any of it together, for that just in case options, like maybe a situation where you didnt want to wear your e-ring, but wanted a little more bling and could stack the two bands?

I had to solder mine, otherwise they twisted around like crazy and I was constantly straightening them out.  I never would have worn the wedding band solo, anyway.

What exactly is the reason you are thinking of getting them soldered for? Are you worried about them spinning, or just so you don’t have to take three separate rings off? 

If its spinning, my mom had two small beads put in her ring– mostly for sizing, but it makes it so her ring doesn’t spin. 

I don’t entirely like soldering because I wouldn’t want to not have the option of wearing just my wedding band, if I wanted to. If anything, I would get the e-ring and gift ring soldered.
