I dont think its a big issue… my wedding band has diamonds on only  half of it, its contour on the inside so it doesnt seem to turn that much although I havent started wearing it yet but I have worn similar rings to that in the past and it never bothered me when it turns.

You do have the option of have the two rings soldered together, that might stop it from turning or atleat when they turn, they will turn together

Talk to a jeweler.  There are two options that I know of and a jeweler may know more 

1. Solder the two rings together

2. Have a jeweler add little balls/beads of metal to the inside of the bottom of your band.  These make the ring sit tighter on your finger without making it entirely smaller.  It helps keep the ring from turning and if done right, doesn’t affect how it feels on your finger.  They look like this:

J/K, sizing beads are probably your best option.

Also. what is wrong with those people and their comments? Have they never seen a half eternity band before?

If you don’t want to solder, I’m not sure if all jewelers do this or not but my jeweler said she could make a teeny tiny hole in the ering band, and put a small peg on the wedding band so that the peg fits into the hole and the rings don’t spin. The other option is converting the wedding band shank to a euro shank, my ering is just a plain solitaire and is kind of top heavy, but it NEVER spins bc of the euro shank, but that would probably mean remaking the whole wedding band, so maybe not so practical.

I agree with sizing beads or soldering them together.

@littlegraykitten: I have heard a lot about euro shanks, it sounds like a good idea. are they comfortable? it looks like it could feel a little thick between the fingers.

Mine does this and always freaks me out! LoL. I figured it was from my weightloss! =) I dont plan on having a wedding band, so I guess I’ll just have to deal with it or get it resized maybe?

I think they’re actually more comfortable than a regular shank! It’s hard to explain, but like when you make a fist there’s less metal so it’s less noticeable? It’s not that big of a difference really, but i do notice it when I’m wearing a ring on the other hand and have the direct comparison. But the no spinning thing is seriously AWESOME.

It drove me crazy when my wedding band would spin around.  I had my engagement ring and wedding band soldered together and it completely solved the problem  The rings never spin around now.
