I’ve heard from other bees that you should go with a bigger size if you plan on soldering your rings together.  Just keep in mind you can go or down in quarter sizes too not just have sizes.  So try on a 7.75 before you go with the 8 to ensure while you’re wearing you ering that it’s not going to slip off.

Definitely go up a bit in size for having them soldered together. I just got my wedding band 2 weeks ago and I will admit, I wore it for a day around the house. Even just wearing my e-ring and w-band together for one day I noticed that they fit way tighter together than they do with just each ring on it’s own. They take up more surface area together, thereby constricting more of your finger. So if they fit tighter just sitting next to each other, I’m assuming they will fit tighter if they are soldered together. I’m a ring size 9 but got both rings sized to 9 1/2.

I’ve heard that too, but both my rings are sized 3.5 and soldered together and they aren’t tighter. I figure if they would fit you each on their own, why would they fit tighter when soldered together .. BUT if that’s what your jeweler recommends, do that. I’m not a jeweler lol

I would go up 1/4 inch or 1/2 inch on both. How wide are you rings? It will make a difference – if you’re soldering together 2 2mm rings, it won’t be that much tighter than if you’re soldering together 2 4mm rings.

I am a size 7… and I have 3 rings and had to go up to an 8 and they are still a tiny bit snug…get them all a size bigger especially if soldering together. I still have to put mine on one at a time because they wont fit on as one. I wish I would have sized to an 8.25

@kansas_nurse:  Definitley get them a bit larger. The more space that is taken up on your finger the more give you will need especially in warmer temperatures.

I would go up a size! You can always get sizing beads if they end up being too big. I think it would be easier to make the ring smaller than bigger, if needed.

@kansas_nurse:  Just have to say I love that set and can’t wait to see pictures of it on someone’s finger.
