    No; I like the one you have better. Bigger isn’t always better. Yours looks great!

    I like yours, and it does look like 2 rings to me 🙂 Beautiful!

    It’s hard to compare without seeing the other band beside your ering too… maybe it looks a bit wider or bulkier in comparison and though we might like the pic of the new band, we might not feel like it coordinates as well.

    The soldering may really be a problem though, I can’t imagine they’ll let you return a ring that has already been soldered.  Maybe I could see it if you were upgrading your band at the same place you got your wedding set, but just to return it… I’ll be really surprised if they go for that.

    As to your issue of whether or not to solder, I can give you some insight into that.  I was decidedly AGAINST soldering, until I had worn both rings together for about 10 months.  The wring and ering were both wearing down on the sides from rubbing together (aggravated by the diamonds in the setting, but even plain gold on gold will cause wear eventually).  I would have had to send my ring in every year for repairs to the milgrain edges, and it takes about a month for shipping & repairs every time.  Also, the more fixing and fussing you do with a ring, the less perfect it looks every time.  SO, soldering – GOOD IDEA in my books.
