Don’t have a picture but my mom had hers soldered together and I know she loves it. She always talks about how she doesn’t have to worry about her wedding band spinning upside down anymore, and IMO it looks great too.

I’m following. I always assumed I’d have them soldered together, but I never really thought about what it would look like. I have heard that soldering makes them fit a bit more snug though.

As an alternative to soldering, our jeweller has offered to shave the wedding band so that it follows the curve of my E band and fits snugly against it. I can’t remember the price he quoted, but it wasn’t much.

megan331979:  my grandmothers were soldered together. When my fiancé was given the set, he took them apart before he proposed. So if u hate it, know it’s not permanent ๐Ÿ™‚

megan331979:  I had my e-ring and wedding bands soldered together, as they would probably spin like crazy if they weren’t. We had it done a few weeks before the wedding, and I just wore a stand-in ring I bought from Berricle in the mean time.

Yes! I love it. I have a half eternity so spinning didn’t work. It also keeps my diamond upright. My rings were just a smidge too big and they now fit more snug. No regrets here.

I had my ring and two bands soldered together for some time, over 2 years. I had another band I would wear when I did not or could not wear the entire set. What I liked about them being soldered was they always sat just right, it was easy to keep track of one ring, and the rings were protected from rubbing against each other.  Also helped reduce spinning.

What I did not like on my case was it made for a very heavy ring (all are 18k handforged gold, my e-ring weighs about 7+grams, and each of the bands weighed about 3.5 grams), as well as a wide one. I like and need my rings to be sized a bit loose due to knuckle, but it meant sometimes the ring was much too loose, especially when cold, and it was a lot of weight to slip and slide up and down. So, I found myself  not wearing it as much as I would like!

I had them unsoldered again recently (and no, it was not a big deal, and no you can’t tell!) because of the above, but also because I have kind of moved away from wanting lots of bands on one finger, and like the look of just a band and an ering. I debated having just one band unsoldered but I’d like to be able to just wear ering alone on right hand sometimes and band on left.

Here they are soldered:

Here they are unsoldered…I have been enjoying the gap lately because it’s been a while since I could have one!:

megan331979:  It should definitely help with the spinning! I don’t mind the spinning so much, and ring snuggies help that too, but I do know it drives some people nuts ๐Ÿ™‚

I would definitely get mine soldered if I could, but I’m wearing my grandmother’s wedding ring and a moissy e-ring. I want to be able to pass the wedding ring to my sons and I don’t think it would survive unsoldering.
