I am glad I did it! No more spining and scatching each other! But know that they might fit a little more snug on your finger. I am thinking about getting mine sized up a half size because when my fingers swell, I can barely get it on.

I’m soooooo happy I had my rings soldered!!! They stay together, and don’t damage each other. They don’t make sounds when hitting each other because they are tied together. For me, my rings spin because they are sized large enough to get over my larger knuckle, so the wedding band stabilizes my e-ring and it spins less. 

I agree with @JesdsMorgan777:  , the rings will feel smaller, and you might want to size them up before soldering. 

I’ve had two rings unsoldered before, and they were in mint condition afterwards. I’ve had my e-ring and previous wedding band unsoldered before and there was slight damage on the basket of my e-ring. It was warped slightly. Of course this didn’t matter since I was soldering a custom-band on it right away. But I guess there’s a risk for ring damage. (It was unsoldered twice, once for resizing, once for changing out the band).

Another detail, my store warranty paid for the soldering, which was sweet! You can ask for that if you have a protection plan. 

Here are my beauties!!

I don’t have any personal experience, but I can tell you that my mother’s rings have been soldered my entire life (and likely before) and she’s really happy with that decision 30+ years later. They haven’t needed any maintenance for the solder, either. Her rings are white gold.

I had my rings soldered together and I’m so glad I did also.  I don’t know why they seem to fit  a little tighter than when they were apart; I would suggest going up at least a quarter of a size or more depending on how thick your bands are.  I got them soldered because I too never wore them separately, plus, since my anniversary band is half eternity, I got tired of it spinning around and having to constantly line it up straight.  It also prevents the diamonds from my anniversary band from rubbing into the band of the e-ring.  My jeweler polished them after soldering.
