Soldering Rings Together
Once you put on your wedding and engagement rings, you’ll probably never want to take them off. Many sets are designed to match each other’s contours and nest, but rings that simply sit flush when worn together sometimes spin on your finger.
This means you may be constantly straightening your wedding band to make it line up with your engagement ring, which can be frustrating and tiresome, and can also lead to excess wear on the band from the friction caused by constant spinning. Fortunately, our professional jewelers can solder your rings together so they stay lined up but still maintain the appearance of a set.
Depending on the particulars of the rings you want soldered together, we’ll take special precautions to avoid damaging any gemstones or other delicate features present. And while we approach each job with an eye toward the individuality of the pieces, our process generally follows the same set of steps.
• The first thing we do on this type of job is to clean each piece thoroughly and check the tightness of the gemstones.
• Next, we’ll line up both bands to make sure they’re perfectly level, using a temporary wire to hold them in place.
• Once they’re aligned, we use a laser to solder the rings together without impacting any of the other design elements in either piece.
• Finally, we’ll check gemstone tightness again, and we’ll refinish and polish your rings to get them back to like-new condition.
Not everyone chooses to have their wedding set or other rings soldered together, but there are several advantages to going this route. For instance, you won’t have to worry about either ring spinning on your finger, so you can be sure they’re always perfectly lined up. And since you likely wouldn’t ever wear one of these rings without the other, there’s really no reason not to attach them.
No matter what type of finish is on your rings, we can restore it once we’ve finished soldering them together. Our skilled craftsmen have extensive experience working with fine custom jewelry, and we can reproduce or enhance any style or effect.
We can also put a new type of finish on your rings if you’re looking to change up the appearance or style of the set. Our professionals will make recommendations if you’d like based on the particulars of your pieces, and we’ll carry out exactly the modifications you specify so you can have rings you’re excited to wear day in and day out.
