alreadyawife:  It really depends on the jeweler.  My SIL soldered together her rings (which were incidentally family rings that had been passed down for over 100 years).  The jeweler did a terrible job and it ended up being a disaster.  She definitely regretted it.

My E ring is an antique from the 40s and my wedding band will be new. It seems wrong to stick them together

WOW! These rings are beautiful!!! I’m scared to death of soldering. It’s so permanent…like a tattoo! I’m so indecisive that I probably won’t do it. I might change my mind a million times regarding bands lol

alreadyawife:  i didn’t get mine soldered together because if I go on vacation, i only bring my wedding band and I love the way my wedding band looks by itself. ALso, soldering is permanent and I would be afraid the set wouldn’t look right. There are some sets that should be soldered together, ex: curved wedding bands. When DH was shopping for an Ering he made sure to get a ring that didn’t require a curved band because I hate them, you can’t wear it alone

No becuase my ring is a Tacori and has diamonds and detail on the sides that would be hidden. I’ll be wearing my rings on different hands.

LittleE3:  I have the same issue. I was pretty insistent on getting two matching bands though. I need the symmetry. So I had the two new bands soldered into an enhancer and I drop my heirloom engagement ring into it. No spinning. No damage to the antique. Win win. (And I have a seperae straight band that I can wear alone when need be.)

Eradicatereality:  very pretty! I have really short fingers and my ring is super dainty. All I want is a strait thin platinum knife edge so spin isn’t really a concern!

I wanted symmetry so I end up getting a guard/wrap in place of two wedding bands. I had my ering soldered and I don’t regret it one bit!

I had my custom band soldered and I absolutely love it! Wouldn’t have it any other way 😉 The rings are perfectly aligned, they don’t damage each other and the set is more stable on my finger. 

I have had many rings soldered, like stacks for my right hand, and when I had them unsoldered because of a change of mind, the rings were in perfect condition. 

My e-ring basket once had to be unsoldered because I went from a straight band to a contour band and I noticed a slight warping in the basket filigree. That was fine because the jeweler knew I was having a new band soldered on anyway.
