DH just gave me an eternity ring for our anniversary. Im leaning towards getting all 3 of my rings (engagement, wedding, eternity) soldered together so they dont rub or spin. Apparently they just get tacked underneath the ring so they can get removed if necessary.
Does anyone have their rings soldered and would you recommend it?

The wider the ring the harder to get it off and on

I looked into it with my three rings and was advised against it. Apparently with two it's OK but not recommended for three or more because the band becomes too thick which can cause issues when your fingers swell in hot weather etc. I have fairly slim fingers but they do tend to swell when I'm hot so I decided against it.
It drives me nuts, I adjust my eternity ring a gazillion times a day. I now have 4 rings on that finger (mine plus my mum's wedding band) and am more prone to puffiness at the top of the rings (like a finger muffin top) than with other fingers so I'm glad I didn't get it done. Definitely speak to a reputable jeweller though.

I have my 3 rings done and don't regret it. I have slim fingers with slightly larger knuckles (that sounds attractive i know) anyways I only occasionally have trouble getting it off in the summer. In that case I just use soap and water. I hated my solitaire spinning around all day and as an added bonus I am only charged for 1 ring when i have them rhodium plated.

I had my wedding and engagement rings joined. The reason I had mine done was because the diamond engagement ring would spin to the side. And also, my wedding ring was 18ct gold and my engagement was only 9. The 9 ct gold is harder and would eventually wear out the 18ct gold ring. Due to rubbing.
I need not have bothered, my marriage didn't last long enough for my wedding ring to start to show signs of wear.
