Can You Wear Silicone Rings All the Time?

For many people silicone rings offer a great option when a traditional metal ring is not safe to wear or is at risk of getting damaged, such as at work or while playing sports. However, many people ask the question, “Can you wear silicone rings all the time?” and the answer to that is definitely yes.


Fashionable Function

When silicone rings first hit the market they were only available in a few limited colors and styles. Today there are such a wide variety of silicone ring options available that many people have decided to forego the expense and hassle of traditional gold or other metal rings in favor of wearing a silicone ring all the time. If you are a person who loves the sporty look and enjoys the ability to customize with colors and unique designs, silicone rings are definitely an everyday accessory.


Let Your Ring Breathe

Since silicone is a synthetic material, leaving it in contact with your skin all the time can cause your skin to sweat and your ring to stink. To keep this from happening, let your ring breathe a little every day by taking it off for a period of time. You can do this whenever is most convenient, but for many people the best times are when you’re showering or sleeping.

Premium Enso Rings collections have breathing chambers in the inside of the rings to allow your ring to breathe without taking it off.


Proper Care for Silicone Rings

Just because silicone rings are an easy and durable alternative to metal doesn’t mean they don’t require any care. If you never clean your ring, you might experience some unwanted issues, the most common of which are:

  • Rashes

  • Itching or irritation

  • Unpleasant odors

The easiest way to avoid these issues is to wash your ring regularly. Since silicone is very durable and easy to clean, simple soap and water can be enough to clean it on most days. However, if that still doesn’t help or you want a deep clean from time to time, combine ¼ cup hydrogen peroxide with ½ cup white vinegar and soak the ring for 30 minutes. Scrub it with a small jewelry brush or toothbrush (but obviously not the one you use for your teeth), and boil it for 20 minutes in water as a final step to remove the vinegar smell. This thorough cleansing method is also useful in cases where you develop a slight rash and need to remove any bacteria that might be causing irritation.
