    I had mine soldered.  I figured that since my wrap was acting as my wedding band, and it would look funny to just wear my wedding band alone…the two would always be stuck together anyways.  But there is no set rule!  My jeweler said that soldering would prevent wear and tear from the center stone bumping up against the wrap over time.  But I can see where you’d still want to have the option of wearing your solitaire alone.  Your ring is beuatiful (both with the wrap and without!!  I love those side stones!!). 🙂

    Mine isn’t exactly an enhancer, but the wedding band does curve around the diamond.  I thought about solderier them, but decided not to. 

    First, sometimes I just wear the wedding band when I’m in a more casual mood.  Second, and more importantly, there are diamonds not just on the top of my ring, but the front and back too.  I thought what’s the point of having diamonds there if no one will EVER see them again?

    But of course, this doesn’t really help you.  I think most women are more likely to wear their wedding band alone than their Engagement Ring alone.  Btw, your set is gorgeous!  I think if my rings were more like yours I would definitely have them soldered.

    I don’t have a set like that but a few of my friends do and they all soldered (sp?) them together.  Like others, they would never wear the enhancer/wrap on it’s own so it just made more sense to put them together.  They have also told me it’s more comfortable that way.

    soldering does not have to be permanent. all you have to do is take them back to the jeweler to have them released. it should not cost very much, either. 

    however, I thought that with an enhancer, the ring sits pretty firmly in there and the bands don’t spin? as long as they don’t rub each other a lot, then you don’t really have to worry about damage.
