@roweboat:  my jeweller told me that soldering rings would minimize damage due to movement of thw rings. so I would personally solder your rings together, although I’m not sure how that works when there is a gap between the rings? definately take it to a jeweller you trust and ask lots of questions first!

Solder the rings together and then it won’t move around anymore.  My jeweler soldered a small area od the bottom of the rings together (on the palm side.)  It doesn’t show and it’s easily undone without damaging the settings if I want to get them taken back apart.

I had mine back the next day.  I used Helzberg at the local mall.  3-4 weeks is unacceptable for a process that literally takes all of 2 minutes to complete.

@roweboat:  I haven’t actually had mine soldered yet. We are currently waiting on my wedding band to come in (longest 6 weeks of my life I swear). However, they said they could do it in store because they have a metalsmith on staff and it would be returned to me on the same day. 

 

ETA: Sorry, read the wrong post. If your rings are custom any chance you would have the opportunity at some point to have the original jeweller do the work?

I am all for soldering, and plan to have mine soldered (no matter how well they fit) once I have them all on my finger forever!  Find a local jeweler that has someone in-store that can solder them while you wait (or leave for a couple of hours).

I would have them soldered. I had mine back the same day.
