    No. Although the incessant “turning” and “twisting” drives me crazy (I am constantly straightening them!), I really love my rings as individual pieces of jewelry, and I never want to do anything to change their beauty from any angle or the ability for each ring to be a stand-alone piece. I also would like to preserve the option of my possibly wearing my wedding band without my e-ring on an occasion, if I should ever want to do that for any reason in the future.

    I see no point.  My rings fit well.  No turning nor twisting.  I just put three rings on and take three rings off.  Plain and simple.

    I haven’t yet, but I am going to. They would look fine without being sautered together, but I think they would look better (no gaps between them) if they were. I did get a good deal on a third, separate band that I can wear if I just want to wear a band, though, so that helped.

    I am planning on it. I have a half-eternity e-ring and wedding band, and it would drive me crazy if they didn’t line up. Plus, I have a small diamond on the side of my e-ring, and my jeweler said that if the rings weren’t sautered, that small diamond would eventually fall out due to the wear against the wedding band.

    I’m not going to, because I want to be able to wear my wedding band alone if I want to.

    @mrstj2b: yeah this is what I was told as well. The rings can rub together and wear down the prongs. Plus I was always straightening them (half eternity band, three stone +3 small diamonds down each side e-ring…..yeah my OCD tendencies had a field day with lining those up all the time.

    I plan to get a twisted rope band so I don’t think soldering is necessary. If I were getting e.g. a half eternity, I’d consider it.

    Hmm. Based on some of your posts, I am now wondering about any damage that might be occurring to my rings, since I also wear three rings and they are constantly rubbing against each other.  Also, my e-ring and diamond wedding band (half eternity) are both platinum, and my new anniversary band (also half eternity but much thinner band, with much smaller diamonds — impulse purchase made while on vacation out of the country this fall) is white gold. Does anyone know if those metals could possibly cause issues for each other while rubbing against each other?

    my original ring had 7 small stones. I would have definitely soldered them so the two rings line up perfectly. 

    but I bought a 3/4 eternity ring, so now I don’t have to worry about spinning very much. so now I won’t solder them.  it’s way easier to take off the individual rings than it is to take off one big one.

    i dont have any rings yet but this is something i am greatly contemplating. i sort of like the look of rings that fit flush but may have a tiny gap inbetween because they aren’t sautered together. now, i know lining up the diamonds if they are half eternities will drive me NUTS. so i just dont know. i do like the idea of being able to wear my wedding band alone if i have to.
