Hello ladies! I’m a long-time lurker, first time poster!
So. I have a solitaire engagement ring. After purchasing my dream wedding band — thin band, princess cut, channel setting — I realized I’d really like the symmetry of having a band on either side of the engagement ring!
My question is this: I don’t want to get them soldered together (work reasons), and I don’t want an extra ring that means nothing thrown on there because it looked pretty! I want to include both bands in the ceremony during the ring portion, but don’t know how without soldering!

Hi this isnt really a solution, but i wanted to say i had the same dilema and decided to go with 2 rings, we will be eloping and getting legally married in florida, then immediately flying to paris for our ceremony. I will put the first ring on at the courthouse and the second on at the paris ceremony. Sorry, not a solution, just when I ended up deciding to do because I too need symmetry in my life!

@Aicyla22: Don’t worry if it’s not a solution. I just realized I posted it in proposals! *facepalm* And while it doesn’t work for me, your solution sounds brilliant for you!

First and foremost, WELCOME to the Hive !!
I was (am ?) thinking about the same possibility (depends on what Mr TTR decides to purchase for me).
My E-Ring is quite wide & glittery, I’d like to match it up with a very plain thin white gold W-Band. On the other hand, Mr TTR has mentioned he’d like to see it with a sparkly band… which is all very nice, but there will be times when I don’t need to be flashing my diamonds around (be that on vacation somewhere, or doing activities that might endanger my rings… such as gardening, scuba diving etc).
The compromise, will be maybe my ending up with 2 Wedding Bands for me… in which case, I’ve already decided that I’ll have them BOTH blessed at the Wedding Ceremony (so the same as if my W-Band was just one ring)
Still haven’t decided though, if I’ll wear one band on each side of the E-Ring (most likely) or wear them together on the side “closest to my heart” as is the common practice for W-Bands
As for soldering… Have to say I am not a fan. I like the fact that I have the freedom to wear the rings as I choose (1, 2 or 3 at a time). And as an Encore Bride let me tell you that it isn’t a huge benefit anyhow… you get used pretty quickly to having 2 or more rings together on one finger, so never was an issue for me in my previous marriage.
Hope this helps,

You don’t have to solder them together to have him put both rings on your hand during the cerermony… when the officiant says “with this ring I thee wed” have him slip the two of them on you at the same time… voila!
