    Do you know the thickness in MM?

    I love your setting, so I would personally solder it 🙂

    That sucks, I’m sorry! Check what platinum alloy you have – apparently they vary a lot. If you can get the shank or the whole setting remade in a harder alloy, that may solve the problem. And although I also love the thin band look, I think yours could look great with a slightly thicker band and pave stones that are a little bigger to match the halo stones.

     I’ve been told its best not to go under 2mm, ESPECIALLY if you have pave.  My ring is 2mm at its widest and tapers to 1.5mm at the diamond and is platinum.  No pave and I wear it just about 24/7 and it has not warped at all in the 1 1/2 years I have owned it.

    If I were you I’d consider resetting to something slightly thicker for durability unless of course you are okay with soldering your rings together.

    It going to be a personal choice. Soldering it to your wedding band means you’ll have the same engagement ring you actually got engaged with but you might want them to stay separate. I have a pretty thin ring which I know will probably warp, but it’s the style I love and I’d rather have something I absolutely love for 5 years and then reset it than have to settle for something now.
