Both mine are soldered. The oval was my 4th anniversary one that i got to pick myself…the princess set my hubby had soldered prior to marrying. Its irritating to constantly line them up and the constant movement wears the metal down.

hunting_bride :  I got my rings soldered after we came back from the honeymoon! The jeweler did it for free since we had an extended care package. I love them like that! That way one doesn’t spin around the other! In your case, though, if diamonds go all around your wedding band it may not make too much of a difference!

I soldered mine together about a year after the wedding. It keeps the e-ring from spinning, and it keeps them from rubbing against each other and wearing.

I now have a new set and want to solder them. I’m constantly turning the e-ring back to the front – and it looks funny if the diamond doesn’t match up correctly with the wedding band.

Unless you think you’ll be wearing just the band alone (like – if you’re a nurse or doctor and you’ll just wear your band to work) I’d suggest getting them soldered.

I wouldn’t ever get rings soldered. I think it locks you in to one style, and makes it harder, if not impossible to change out bands, stack, etc. Also, for me, I like to sometimes just wear a band, and other times just a solitaire. I don’t mind gappping. 

 

It it all comes down to personal preference, though.

hunting_bride :  I thought of soldering mine together but then I realized I loved stacks,  so I can switch out my rings when I want to. I love the mismatch. I love this look so much:

And this look as well:

And wear it like this most of the time:

Depends on my mood. That a why I didn’t solder my rings together. Its so much fun 🙂

My original set was soldered and I loved it.  I also never took it off ever.  My fake set is not soldered and it doesn’t bother me because the band is plain and it’s just temporary until after pregnancy.

I soldered mine a few weeks after getting married when I started seeing wear from the eternity prongs rubbing on the base of my solitaire head.

I didn’t consider it. I like wearing just my wedding band sometimes. I changed my mind from a pave style though for something more hearty. I’ll get sparklies to stack eventually.
