I plan on soldering mine together, because I wouldn’t wear the wedding band by itself, as it’s going to be a curved enhancer band. It makes my decision a tiny bit easier – because I know I wouldn’t wear it by itself. Fiance suggested getting a separate band that isn’t curved to wear when I don’t want to wear my set.

I know what you mean about the seasons changing how your ring fits; so awkward!

I decided to solder my rings because I had a heart attack and lost my E- ring at my moms.

Once I found it, I vowed to solder the E ring AND wedding band together.

I cant keep track of 2 rings LOL

Look into sizing beads before you get them soldered together.

Sizing beads help prevent spinning. And then you’ll still have the option of wearing your rings separately. (There are times I don’t like to wear mine…like working out, snowboarding, etc.)

I’m not married yet but I do plan on ultimately soldering my rings together.  Sure they’re gonna spin but I’d like them to spin together.  However, I’m greedy and want two bands.  I’ve been told that I’ll get that second band at a later date and that’s when I’ll solder my actual wedding and e-ring band together.  That way, if I wanted to just wear a band, i can wear the second one around.

@pinkshoes:  I’ve decided to solder my bands for 3 reasons:

1. I hat it when the center stones don’t line up perfectly.

2. one is 18k gold and the other is 14k, so I’m worried that the harder ring will wear on the softer (and more valuable) e-ring.

3. I don’t think I will ever wear them separately. I will buy a plain sterling silver band if I want something simpler to wear for camping, gardening, etc.

I have a stand-in e-ring. it’s cubic zirconia. it will be good to wear when the ring is “in the shop” or if I travel somewhere that I’m nervous about it being stolen. I love it, it’s really big and sparkly!

it doesn’t have to be forever! don’t let jewelers tell you that you cannot separate your rings one day. if he says that, go to a new jeweler! they should be able to think outside of the box and figure out a way to fuse the bands in a way that if you should want to separate them, it’s easy as heating up the rings and getting the solder to “release.” I know alot about soldering because I used to be a jewelry maker myself.

@pinkshoes: Yep, like I mentioned above Fiance wants to get a “wedding band” to wear by itself when I don’t want to wear all three. It will probably be very simple, but I couldn’t go without anything. I’d feel dishonest.

@pinkshoes: Sizing beads shouldn’t prevent you from taking the ring off.  And they can make them different sizes. If it ends up being too tight, you can have them "shave" them down a bit.

I would definitely speak to a jeweler about that option before soldering though.

I’m also curious about people’s opinions on soldering them together – I’m torn.  Also, my e-ring is palladium.  So does my wedding band have to be palladium?
