My fiancé got me a ring set and intended for both rings to be the engagement ring (they sit together and really look like one ring besides the shank) and to get a separate wedding band. I talked to the jeweler and they said they could reshank the ring to make it so the rings are one. Will this ruin my ring?

shanste : here is a not great picture of the ring, but it shows how the two rings go together as well of the detail of the band.

This is my ring from my past marriage. Both the wedding band and engagement ring have been melted together for strength. It really made a big difference as far as keeping them from rubbing together. I still wear this ring on my right hand since 1996 with no issues.
I also thought mine looked like one ring. I think yours would look nice with a separate wedding band.

shanste : I don’t think it would ruin it, but I don’t think it’s necessary either. Those sets are meant for the “main” ring to be the engagement ring, then the other is your wedding band, but when put together, it looks like a single ring. If you want the two of them to be the engagement ring, I would just get them soldered rather than reshanking. Although you may have a hard time finding a band to fit with it. Oh — is that why the jeweler suggests reshanking, so a band will fit better? I guess that might make sense, but I wonder if the jeweler could be trying to get more money out of you guys. How much will the reshanking cost? It’s a very pretty set, I would probably use them as the engagement and wedding ring, without adding a third one or worrying about reshanking.
