    Soldering your ring?

    Advertisements
    Did you do it? What are the pros/cons of getting it done? About how much was it (if you want to answer)?

    TIA!

    I've thought about it since my engagment ring 'falls' forward but since they are my MIL's rings and a family heirloom, I decided against it. I don't know that it will ruin them or not but it's a chance I don't want to take.

    I will not be simply because I want to maintain the integrity of my rings and sometimes I cant wear my engagement ring (at work) since its so big (I know, first world problems ). But I also dont think it looks pretty so I wouldnt do it.

    I wear my wedding ring alone sometimes and I like it that way, plus my engagement ring has diamonds on the side and that would ruin them.

    I need to.

    I have a low setting so I hardly see the need to take off my ring because the diamond is in the way. I have a curved wedding ring so it fits snug against my low setting, it looks a little weird to just wear the band.

    Yes because when you wear them together they can wear down from rubbing against each other.

    Though sometimes I wish I hadn't because my ring is to big and from wearing it so much while working a lot with my hands I had to take it in a lot to get prongs adjusted because I would catch my center stone on things.

    Mine are soldered. I really kinda had to, I've got 2 wedding bands that sandwich my e-ring and before I soldered them they would slide all over and never looked right. It didn't cost anything because he bought the lifetime insurance thing and I haven't noticed any negative side effects. I actually really like only having one ring.
