well how would it be different unsoldered? the only thing that would do is give you the option to wear one or the other, otherwise it looks the same worn together.

just know if you unsolder them, you will probably lose some gold and the (bands will be a little thinner where they are currently soulderd) I think they look fine as is, however, obviously… if you want the option to wear one ring without the other, you would have to unsolder them.

@JessMorgan777:  I don’t agree. any good jeweler worth their salt can do this easily w/o thinning the ring or causing any damage – especially if it’s just a straight up job such as the one the OP posted. when you heat the metal, the solder should just melt right off while the underlying metal stays intact. this is because solder has a lower melting temperature than the metal it’s fused to.

then the jeweler will polish. if your rings are normally rhodium plated, then they’ll need to redo that too. 

I know this because I used to make jewelry myself. I know a lot about the process.

The only reason to unsolder them would be so you could wear them separately. Do you want to do that? Downside could be uneven spinning.

I’m leaving my rings unsoldered so I can wear them separately if there are situations where I’d rather not wear my engagement ring.
