3 Reasons a Silicone Ring is Perfect for Summer

The sun is shining and you’re ready to get outside. The only problem? You want to wear your wedding ring but you’re worried that the metal ring will be uncomfortable and possibly dangerous (you’re correct about both of those things), so you ditch the wedding ring and head out. This summer, rather than leaving your ring at home, how about getting a silicone wedding ring that you can wear anywhere you want?

1: Silicone Rings are Soft, Stretchy, and Comfortable

One of the biggest complaints when it comes to traditional metal or diamond wedding rings is that they just don’t flex at all. The rings, usually made of precious metals like gold or platinum, aren’t made to move with your finger. The rigid material can really get in the way when you’re outside doing all kinds of activities involving your hands. Silicone rings are made of a soft, stretchy rubber material that stays comfortable no matter what, even if your fingers swell in the heat or during a workout. The material is flexible so you don’t need to worry about discomfort during any activity.

2: Silicone Rings are Safe

One of the biggest risks of wearing a metal wedding ring is the potential for a finger injury. Ring avulsion injuries (the medical term) occur when your ring gets caught on something. The force of your body pulling against a ring that isn’t designed to break can lead to muscle damage, tissue injuries, broken bones, torn ligaments, and even in very serious cases could cause a finger amputation.

The safest thing to do is just to leave your metal ring at home, but if you still want to wear a ring while you’re out, a silicone ring is much safer. While these rings are durable enough to withstand most of your activities, if something serious happens and your ring gets caught, the force will break the silicone and leave your finger intact.

3: Silicone Rings Won’t Get Lost

Another tragedy with metal rings is the potential that they could get lost while you’re out and about. This is especially risky if you’re going somewhere remote and rugged, or planning to spend time in the water. If you take off your ring on the beach or in the woods you could risk losing it. If you wear it in the water it could slip off your fingers, since they tend to shrink (and get slippery) when it’s cold in the water. Both situations are problematic if you spent hundreds, or even thousands of dollars on a traditional metal wedding band or diamond ring.

Instead of worrying about what might happen to your metal wedding ring, buy a silicone wedding ring from Enso Rings for your summer adventures. You may even discover that you love it so much you don’t really want to go back to that old ring when the summer is over.
