I have a ring enhancer as my wedding ring. I love the look and don’t regret it for a second getting it over a traditional wedding band. The problem is that the two rings do not always line up right! I find myself constantly checking it to make sure the center stone sits evenly in the middle of the enhancer. I am fairly active with my hands (gardening, crafts, exercising etc.) so my ring is constantly moving to the side and not matching up with the other. I am thinking of soldering the two rings together so they will always look perfectly matched.
Anyone who has done this? How much did you pay for it? Are you happy with your soldered ring?
Here is a picture.

That’s gorgeous! I got my rings soldered after a year or so because my wedding band is curved and it kept moving around. I don’t remember what it cost, but not too much (Max $100 maybe, but this also seems like something that could vary hugely by jeweller/city). I am happy with it. My wedding band didn’t sit very nicely on its own so I don’t think I would have worn it alone, but I do lately sometimes wish I had the option (wanting to get a plain matched band and it would be nice if I could wear plain band + wedding ring without e-ring for travel etc). I definitely don’t regret it though. I think with your enhancer, which you presumably would never wear alone, you should be fine 😊

I soldered mine together because like you I had a band that never lined up with the ering. But sometimes I regret it because I can never pair it up with other bands. But for 85% I love having them together and not have to worry about two rings since they are one together.

Yep I have two curved bands and had them soldered. No regrets here.

I also use an enhancer as my wedding ring and got sick of constantly realigning it with my e-ring. I had them soldered almost 20 years ago, and have no regrets. I’m considering having my 25th anniversary eternity band also soldered to the set. There’s no problem with keeping it aligned, but it would definitely make it easier to take them on and off throughout the day.
I don’t remember the exact price, but I think it was around $100 at that time for the soldering, some prong repair, and resizing (3 pregnancies make for fatter fingers).
