My jeweler told me you loose 1/2 a size when they get soldered. I dont know if that helps at all depending on how large your ring is but if its just slightly loose i would think it would fix the problem 🙂

It did seem to make mine a tiny big more snug but not a huge difference. I also lost about 50 lbs and my ring is still loose, but it doesn’t spin as much with all 3 of my bands soldered at least.

Yes they’re more snug now, and you can experiment with how tight yours will be by just putting another ring on (any ring that’s the same size as your ering, as long as it’s a similar width to your wedding band) and try putting the on, taking them off at the same time.  You’ll see right away that it’s harder.

My ering and band were about 1/4 size too big already, so I didn’t have to size them up.

Yeah…I wish someone had said something to be about it, I added another band and had all three soldered, two days later I had big old lincoln loggy fingers and it hurt like hell!  Took em up a whole size, since the ring was so much thicker than it was, and haven’t had any problems since!

it depends on how thick your rings are. the thicker the rings are when soldered together, the more likely you will have to go up in size. I noticed no difference with mine – two 3mm (I think) e-ring and wedding band

yes, it does. individually, two rings on thin bands will spin more. but one ring on a wider band has more surface area to kind of “stick” to your skin. and a wider band will have a harder time sliding over your knuckle.

I really love my rings soldered together, they always look lined up.

by the way, don’t let the decision worry you too much. it should not cost very much money (mine was $30), and it’s very easy to have the two rings released if you don’t like it. it will not damage the rings to have them soldered an un-soldered (should you choose.)

I am so glad I found this thread!  I was planning on doing this after the wedding.  Very good info, bees! 🙂

Mine got a tiny bit more snug. Not enough to be bothersome.
