I truly love this design! Over the years most of the kiss-locks have been broken or damaged, or the rings seperated so they can't be worn. During the 1940s and 1950s it was common to solder rings together. This clever design means that the rings stay on the finger together without the need for solder. It;s the best of both worlds!
The wedding band has a small piece of metal which can be pulled out using a paperclip. The piece of metal fits into the side of the engagement ring at a 90 degree angle, then you twist the rings so they are lined up again, face up, and the rings stay together - a kiss-lock!! If you only want to wear the wedding band or engagement ring, simply swivel the rings, carefully pull the rings apart, and push the kiss-lock back into the wedding band where it sits flush and isn't visible, and the rings are seperate again.
