I have had my rings soldered, then taken apart, then had one of them soldered into a different one. Ha. 

The last time I went in I was specific about what I wanted and they marked the ring with a sharpie. They could do that for you too. Mark both rings and then match up the mark in the shop.

You could just tell them your specifics & they will write it down. I take my rings to Fred Meyers. If the ring guy has any questions he calls me with the number I provide. 

eztA- I highly recommend soldering. Stones rubbing again each other from 2 rings causes damage. But to me the best thing was my rings soun all the time. They don’t spin at all now that they are soldered!

They marked mine with a highlighter and then still did it wrong.  Oh well, doesn’t bother me anymore.

Pear stones are not obvious to solder. I have a pear and I like to wear it a certain way. With the point pointing up. Different people think it should be flipped. The jeweler thought they liked it flipped. I love my pear but don’t want to wear it the other way around.

faina9286 :  they will clean everything for you afterwards so it’s not like the sharpie is going to be there forever.

I had mine soldered and don’t regret it a bit.

They marked mine with a sharpie too.  As they did it, they said, ‘don’t freak out, this comes off gold with the cleaner!!’

 

Also, I love that my rings are soldered not.  They never spin, and are always lined up perfectly.  And no matter what they are, two rings worn together like that will always wear on each other if they aren’t soldered.

I had mine soldered at People’s (Kays), and I have ZERO regrets. I also wanted mine a specific way due to a slight inclusion, and it turned out just as I wanted it!

I had mine done at Zales. She took some string and tied my rings exactly how I wanted them. Picked them up three days later. Don’t regret it at all. A++ would recommend. They also dipped them again so they both matched.
