@MissTzatziki:  Hi there!  Yes, I do have mine soldered.   Just like @jsimp12:  I thought I would wear them seperately.  I tried, I tried, I tried.  I wore my band 2 days without my engagement ring and the other times the band just wouldnt sit right for me.  Because its a half eternity, it drove me crazy when it would spin.  Just my personal preference, so I had them soldered.  The warranty at Shane Co is amazing!  They clean them, size them and solder them at no charge.  Just like the other posters have said, they replace side stones etc for free.  Turn around is usually 3 days.  I got my e-ring re-dipped at about 18 months, also no charge. (I have had my e-ring for 3 years and my band for 1)  I recommend them through and through. 

Like I said in a previous post, I havent felt like mine wasnt substantial enough and I work in the medical field.  Go with your gut, you have to wear it and LOVE it  🙂

Let me just say though, if you want your e-ring pave stones to match the wedding band pave stones EXACTLY, I would get the same ring jsimp12 has and not the cathedral setting that I have.  By exactly I mean the diamonds match side by side. They dont have a band that exactly matches my e-ring.  Let me save you the time and trouble of searching for one.  My e-ring has 14 pave stones and the band has 19, its off  by (an extra) 2 on the band.  Not one person has noticed mine isnt perfectly matched (just me) but I wouldnt trade my cathedral setting for anything.  Hope this helps!

I don’t have that setting, but do have a setting with a very thin band also.  I work in medical imaging in a hosptial where I’m constantly moving patients, banging into equipment, etc. The palm surface does show some wear, but that would have been true with a thicker band.  My band has held up well.  I actually completely bent my setting about 45 degrees shortly after getting the ring and almost died.  But I wasn’t at work!  I was taking clothes out of the washer and caught it on the lip of machine.  And while I didn’t get my ring at Shane Co. (we chose a local owned and operated store with an identical warranty/repair/replacement policy), they completely fixed it and it looks brand new.  It’s amazing what a skilled jeweler can do!  Something could happen to your ring-at some point it probably will—but as long as you purchase from a reputable place you will be fine!

Your setting is beautiful and def go with that option. Shane Co is amazing! And will answer any concerns you’d have about possibly losing the diamond. Their warrenty and care the provide for your ring is great.
