Pros & Cons of Silicone Wedding Rings

Silicone wedding rings have surged in popularity in recent years because they are a great alternative to traditional wedding bands and diamond rings for some people. Here are some of the pros and cons of choosing a silicone wedding ring.


People who choose silicone wedding rings often do so because they offer some great benefits over other ring choices, including more traditional options like an expensive diamond engagement ring or a metal wedding band. These benefits include:

  • Safety: unlike metal rings, silicone rings don’t conduct electricity and they can break, so if you want to wear them everywhere—from work to the gym and out on your weekend adventures, silicone is the way to go.

  • Variety: silicone rings come in a really wide variety of colors and styles. You can choose from more “traditional” looks like the Enso Rings Elements collection with flecks of precious metal for shimmer and shine, or from extremely unique designs like the Inked collection.

  • Affordability: with a price tag under $50 for most silicone rings, you can get one that fits any budget. Plus if you happen to lose it or it gets damaged, it won’t be a huge deal to replace it like it would be if it was a $5,000 diamond ring.

  • Durability: silicone rings are made of a super hard silicone rubber material that bends and flexes with your finger and can withstand just about anything you put it through.


While there are many benefits of silicone rings, there are some reasons you may prefer to go with another option for your wedding ring.

  • Tradition: some people prefer to stick with more traditional looks of metal or diamond rings, which is fine for those who prefer that style. They do come in enough of a variety to allow you to choose different metal colors or various accents that can set a ring apart from others.

  • Gemstones and diamonds: you won’t be able to get a diamond mounted to your silicone rings, so if your special someone really wants to have a diamond on her finger, a traditional ring is the only choice you have.

  • Heirlooms: metal and diamond rings are truly designed to withstand almost anything, so you will likely be able to pass a ring down from one generation to the next. Even if you don’t plan to give it to posterity, a metal wedding ring is still very likely to last your entire life (as long as you don’t lose it).

  • Extra money: for those who simply have a lot of extra money and just don’t know where to spend it, the extra few thousand dollars for a diamond ring won’t be a big deal.
