I was commissioned to make wedding bands for a beautiful hand engraved engagement ring. It seemed a shame to cover up the side engravings with the new bands. It was decided to solder them together at the shank but separate them at the top so you could still see the carving.
I made the two diamond bands and practiced matching the hand engraving style of the original ring on some scrap silver. When the graving work was completed on the new white gold rings, they were all soldered together.
