Many new brides like to have their engagement ring and their wedding band soldered together. Having the two rings soldered together prevents the wear and tear that can occur when rings rub against each other. If you want to sometimes wear your wedding band without your engagement ring, however, use ring adjusters to give your rings a slip-free fit and temporary connection.
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.
