    Mine are soldered and I have no regrets. It keeps them resting next to eachother the way I want and I only have to worry about one piece instead of two. But I lke to always wear my rings together.

    I soldered my rings and definitely don’t regret it.  I wore them together the night of the wedding and the next day and did NOT like it one bit.  They kept moving in different directions and it was very irritating.  For the moment, I don’t see myself not wanting or having to wear them together, and if that time ever comes that I can’t, I’ll just get a different band.  I would actually like to get a 2nd band soldered on the other side of the e-ring for a stacked look!  …hopefully an anniversary gift one day. 😉

    My rings have been soldered together for the past 3 years and I don’t regret it.  I might get a plain gold band to use on vacations but I’m not sure yet.

    I soldered mine together about a month after the wedding. I love it. No regrets, it’s less to worry about, less wear and tear, the stones are always aligned correctly, and I don’t fuss with the rings like I used to pre-solder. Just make sure you go to a reputable jeweler to have it done so they get it right the first try. 🙂

    after reading all your reasons to solder, it sounds like it is right for you.  

    contrary to what you may have heard in the past, you CAN get the rings separated. I studied small metal construction for years and I know for a fact that soldering can be easily (and cheaply) undone. it will NOT ruin your rings. 

    just be sure you get a reputable craftsperson to do this and you will be fine. ask a local jewelry store to refer you to one.

    @RayKay:  I voted for no you’ll regret it just because like you said, it’s permanent. You’re rings are gorgeous and honestly because the bands are no straight and have a unique shape to them I’m not sure how they’ll look if you decide to unsolder them later on. These are all things you can ask your jeweler. I personally always want the feeling of 2 rings even though I never wear them without eachother. That’s just me though. I know putting on and taking off 4 rings is a lot so once you talk to your jeweler and he answers all your questions and you feel comfortable go for it!!

    I don’t see why you’d regret it…I had it done with mine, makes things much more easy and simple!

    @JustLove25:  it’s not permanent. It can be undone. ask a jeweler.

    Sounds like soldering was the best step for you! 4 rings IS alot to keep after, especially if they’re rubbing against eachother and ruining the brushed finish. I’m sure the jeweler will do a great job.
