Sometimes wearing your wedding band and engagement ring day in and day out can become uncomfortable and unrealistic. Instead of soldering them together forever (and possibly hurting their original design), find out if there are ways to connect them when need be but apart when it’s necessary. Below you’ll learn:

The Question: How to keep your wedding rings together without soldering?
“Is there any way to connect my engagement ring and wedding band without soldering? Is there some kind of clasp or connector available?
I really want to maintain my engagement ring as is because it has a beautiful and unique design that covers about 1/2 of the ring. If something like this isn’t sold out there maybe you could invent one and make some big bucks!”
Check with a Master Jeweler First
Fortunately, there is a type of attachment available that can help with this problem. It is used when a ring is too large in size and involves a wire that can be wrapped around the two rings to hold them together without the use of solder. Speak to your local jeweler they may have this wire in stock.
There are also specific designs that automatically create an interlocked experience for the bride. Wear your diamond with your wedding band with simplicity and ease. But if you want to just grab your band and go for the day, that option is available too. See below:
Purchase a ring guard if you want to consistently wear your rings as one unit. A ring guard, also known as an insert ring, is one ring with a band that splits into two halves. You can slip a solitaire engagement ring between the two halves of a ring guard and wear the set as one piece. Ring guards are decorative and function as wedding bands.
Purchase a ring adjuster. A band-style or spring-style ring adjuster slips inside an existing ring to narrow the ring diameter. A small, clip-on adjuster attaches to the bottom of a ring to add bulk and take up extra space. You can also use a clip-on adjuster to fasten the bottoms of two ring bands together.
Monitor the fit of your rings. Use a larger ring adjuster if your rings slide, and switch to a smaller adjuster if your rings feel tight or your finger begins to swell. You may have to experiment with ring adjusters to get a perfect fit, but unless your rings are more than one size too large, you should be able to get it.
