    Do it after so that you can wear your engagement ring down the aisle and have him put on the wedding band.

    I am not having my rings soldered together since I want the option of wearing my wedding band by itself if need be (such as when I have little kids and my diamond ring could get in the way). It depends on preference, obviously, but I like when you can see the difference between the two rings, like when they are not perfect lined up on a woman’s finger.

    I don’t know, they may be tasty with teriyaki sauce (I am just playing with you on saying “sautered”, I read it as “sauteed”. Wink

     

    Assuming you mean soldered, it is totally up to you. Personally, I would never want my rings to be soldered as I like to have options for wearing them (one alone, stacked with other rings, one on each hand). I also like the look of separation or distinctly different rings. If you do get them done, I would probably just do it right before the wedding. Seems to make sense to me that if you are wearing them as “one ring” to have them exchanged during the ceremony as one ring.

    I had mine soldered and I love it.  I prefer my rings to be kind of loose, so I don’t get ring muffin top. but if I made them any looser, they would constantly spin out of place and drive me nuts. now that they are soldered, the stones always line up perfectly and it feels so comfortable to wear a looser size. 

    also, I personally don’t like how my wedding band looks on its own anyway. I have a separate ring I wear if I want to have just a band alone. 

    by the way, many bees seem to think that soldering your ring is permanent and somehow damages it.  it does not damage the ring, and it can be reversed. most styles of rings could be soldered together and taken apart over and over again. plus, it’s really inexpensive to have it done.   if you think your rings have an unusual design  and couldn’t be soldered together w/o somehow damagaing them, take them into a jeweler for a consutation. they might have some ideas you didn’t think of. they can give you a price estimate too.

    mine were soldered just at the bottom only, and you can’t even tell:

    @janie-janie:  I wear my rings really loose (like a full size bigger – 6.25-6.5 instead of 5.25-5.5) and like the spin (as well as the look of my wedding bands on their own!), but do not have rings that need to “line up” either. So good point that if you like them loose and DON’T like spin, or would have rings that “need” adjusting all the time as they would drive you nuts, then soldering can help with that.

    I’ve been wondering this too! I know that I will get them soldered together, because I’m getting a band for each side, and I cannot stand the dreaded gap!!! But I can’t decide if I should do it before or after. The downside of before is that you can’t wear your ring then for a couple weeks, so no engagement ring at the rehearsal, etc. but the reason I’m thinking of doing it before is so that in my wedding pictures, my rings will look as they will look for the rest of my life all together as one! Decisions, decisions

    I was 100% planning to solder mine together, but my mom pointed out that since they are shaped to fit eachother, they most likely won’t spin separately so there’s really no point… so now I’m kind of undecided.  I know it changes the fit slightly, though of course I could get them resized when they do the soldering.  I never plan to wear them separately, as I know some bees do.  I kind of like the idea of having them as one ring, so I will probably still do it.

    — If I do solder them, it will be after the wedding, perhaps even during the honeymoon since I am thinking it’ll be safer to leave the rings behind anyway.

    I am not going to have my rings soldered. I want the option to wear one at a time or both if I choose.

    My wedding ring is custom to match the curves of my engagement ring so I can’t wear it alone. It has to be flipped the right way to match up to my engagement ring so we’re getting them soldered before the wedding so I can just put them on and not worry about it.

    My wedding band is also custom made for my e-ring and is not meant to be worn alone. Since I got the wedding band made, I feel like my e-ring looks like just half a ring and is so much more complete with its mate. I will have them stuck together after the wedding, and I also think my Fiance will put both rings on together during the ceremony. They feel like one ring together to me!

    I will never wear them alone, so I figure I might as well solder them to make it easier for me. Also, the jeweller who made my custom band told me that my e-ring is a little thin on one part, most likely where they sized it for me, and in his opinion it may break after a few decades of constant use. He made that part on the band extra thick so that when they are soldered it will be stronger. He will solder them for me.

    @RayKay:  lol. I kept thinking to myself ‘isn’t it soldered?’

    like Melanie422 I am not planning on wearing my e-ring when we have young kids since my ring is a high setting and it would be in the way so I like having the option to wear my rings separately.

    nope. I want two rings, not one big clump of ring! keep my options open. wedding ring I’ll always wear, e-ring I may take off once we’re married.

    @FunfettiCupcakes:  Check with your jeweler — the local place w,here we got the wedding band does it in house (but only on Tuesdays and Fridays!). So….I could take it Friday and have it picked up Saturday morning but that would make me a little nervous, so I will probably end up dropping it off Tuesday just to be safe!

    Never questioned that I would solder them….I never even considered that I would want to wear them separately! I probably would have waited until afterward, but when I asked my fiance he immediately said before — and he gets so few things his way, I figured this is pretty minor 🙂
