your jeweler is correct.

if you have diamonds that stick out on the sides, then you shouldn’t wear any kind of ring next to it. they will scratch the heck out of the metal. if you had two rings with diamonds sticking out of the sides, that’s even worse:  diamonds can be broken by other diamonds.

if you have a plain band separating the rings, that would help. but if that separator ring is touching diamonds, it will get scratched. 

I think a better solution is to solder them together with a slight gap. that way they can’t rub on each other.

hummm I never thought about this (both my engagement ring and wedding band are 3 sided pave bands. Meaning one side of my engement ring is against the other side of my wedding band (diamonds all touching diamonds.)

But even though mine arn’t sautered together, naturally they lay slightly apart on my finger.

But your post will make me keep special attention, even though I havn’t seen any signs of distress on the bands.

Here are the two best pics I have where you can see the diamonds on all 3 sides. My band on my engagement ring and my wedding band are the exact same, but as you can see in the 1st pic, the side of my engagment ring and the side of my wedding band go up against each other diamonds to diamonds. I don’t have pics of the 2 on, but naturally there is a slight gap between them, so they arn’t in constant contact.

Diamond is the hardest material known to man. They can, and will, scratch and destroy anything they come into contact with. Nothing can scratch a diamond, except another diamond. Guess what they use to cut rough diamonds? Diamonds. Guess what they use to drill through ROCK deep into the earth’s core? Diamonds!

Okay, I’ll stop being dramatic. Pretty sure you get my point. ;-P

Your only solution here, and I think it’s a pretty good one, is to get a spacer. A very thin, platinum band that will go inbetween your rings will protect them, lessen the “gap,” and be practically invisible. See?

Perfectamundo! 🙂

@littlemissmango:  Let me just say, that your second picture is ALL over Pinterest under the wedding section. Beautiful set! I never would have noticed the spacer had you not pointed it out.
