I don’t have any good advice about before vs after, but…My sister got married 2 years ago and shortly thereafter got her rings (one ering, one band) soldered together. The jeweler had told her the same thing–that it would look better always lined up. However, she hated the feel of having them soldered together and has already gotten them un-soldered. She didn’t like that the entire set turned/twisted around her finger as one; it bothered her somehow moreso than the individual rings twisting did. Just my 2 cents!

I had mine done shortly after the wedding and am so glad that I did!  I wanted the small diamonds on the side of my e-ring to line up correctly with my wedding ring diamonds and I’m so glad I did!  The only advice I have is to make sure they line the rings themselves corrrectly.  They placed my wedding band up a bit higher than my e-ring so that the stones would line up nicely.  THe only problem was that this decreased the amount of room inside of the ring for my fingers and my ring felt tight.  I took it back to the store and had them re-do it and now I love it!

I was thinking about this but decided against. My FMIL’s ring were soldered together and when they got knocked down the garbage disposal she lost both of them because they were together. If they had been separate she still might have one of them. Just a thought.

I know my mother had hers “welded” together because the bands were pretty narrow and they thought it would hold up better that way. I’m in the same boat you are (though with two bands, one custom made around the other) and am thinking of doing the same thing after the wedding–as we’re four days out at this point. If you’ve got the time, and don’t mind giving up your engagement ring for a little bit, I would have them put together before the wedding, that way you don’t have to mess with them and make sure they stay in place for photos, etc. It’s just one less stress.

I’m soldering mine together before the ceremony. My band is also contoured and it looks funny on its own. If you don’t solder them, then they often rub against each other and wear each other down. Not a big deal five years out, but my Future Mother-In-Law just celebrated 30 years and had to have both her e-ring and wedding band completely rebuilt.

 I had mine done after the wedding. My Wedding band was made for my Ering so it’s the same kind of thing like yours, I can’t wear the band without the Ering. They soldered it on the inside of the ring so it fell through the slit but you cannot tell by looking at the bottom that it was soldered. My HB said he will get me a anniversary  band on our 1 year so I have something in the chance that my set has to go in to be fixed or we go on a vacation and I don’t want to bring the whole set.

I have three rings: my solitaire engagement ring, an enhancer (basically a wrap for the solitaire with sidestones), and my wedding band.

I had the enhancer soddered to my engagement ring about a month before our wedding, but didn’t have the wedding band attached at all.

I like having mine separate., and really don’t have issues with them “not lining up”. Mine e-ring’s marquise, though, and I have a contoured band, which prevents them from twisting too much.

I don’t think it would be weird to walk down the aisle with no ring. Ususally, brides put their Ering on their right hand for the ceremony anyway. Just a thought 🙂

I considered having mine done, but my band is pretty snug and doesn’t seem to have an issue with twisting.

A friend of mine has three rings, which she soldered together after the wedding and honeymoon.  She said she really regrets not doing it before, as her rings spinning and twisting around drove her crazy during the honeymoon.

I’m having a partial band made to fit flush with the setting of my e-ring…so I’ll be ringless for a few days before our wedding. There’s no way I could wear them alone, lol. I do think that rings look nicer soldered together, but that’s just my opinion.

I soddered mine together before the ceremony and am SO glad I did! I love that they’re one ring. It’s so much easier to take off and on. And I hae a contured band as well so I didn’t think I’d wear them seperately. I love that they line up perfectly and don’t flip around on my finger 🙂

I had mine done before the ceremony so they would be blessed as one.  I like having them as one ring now, b/c they always look perfect.  lol
