2mm is so thin to begin with, even adding another band and soldering will not make it *that* much tighter.

I have a 4mm e-ring and a 5mm wedding band and finger size 5. I dont’ notice much difference between them together or apart.

But personally I wouldn’t solder them because I like the option to wear one or both.

Mine are both 1.7 mm. They are size 5 although I vary between 4.75 to 5 on any given day. I’m not sure how your fingers are, but generally speaking, 4mm is pretty thin, so I don’t think they will feel too tight on you. It will be a little bit more secure feeling as the outer ring will slightly hug the slightly wider part of your finger but not so much so that you feel like your circulation is cutting off. I would not resize either one.

I wouldn’t solder them together either. I never wear mine individually, but I like having the option of doing so. Assuming your rings sit flush, there’s nothing to be gained IMO from soldering them together.

When I add my wedding band, together the width will be 4mm. Will this make my ring tighter?? Yes. the wider bands are, the bigger size they need to be.  my bands were each 2mm and I definitely felt a difference in comfort when I put them together. 

Should I get them both upsized??  maybe not. it depends on how they’ll feel. why not wear them around for a few days/weeks and see how they feel? 

Will it make a difference if I get them soldered together as opposed to keeping them seperate?? yes. together, they will spin less. it’s as if together there is more “grip” on your finger. they will always be lined up perfectly.  

I had my ring soldered together. best decision I ever made. now they are always lined up perfectly, but the fit is loose, which I find to be more comfortable. plus I don’t have ring muffin top anymore.

also: getting them soldered together shouldn’t be a very big gamble. I know some bees think it cannot be undone, or that it will damage your rings. that is not necessarily true, it just depends on the style of the ring. it usually does not cost very much either.

so if you are really tempted to do it, then it does not hurt to take it to a jeweler for a consultation!

I have a two and a three mm band that I wear together, and the band is the same size as my ering. I don’t think you should get them sized
