What Does a Black Silicone Ring Mean?

One of the benefits of purchasing a silicone wedding ring is the ability to get it in just about any color or style you want, and there has definitely been an uptick in the trend of wearing black silicone rings (for both men and women, although the trend is more prevalent for men). If you select a black silicone ring, does it have special meaning? We looked into the details to find out.


The Color Black

The color black has not traditionally been associated with love or affection, but it is a very ambiguous color when it comes to specific meaning. For some it symbolizes something sad or negative, such as mourning the death of a loved one. For others it is a symbol of strength, power and protection, and still others see it as a more eternal representation of love and commitment. Because it is so versatile, wearing a black ring doesn’t necessarily convey any specific meaning except what it means to the person who puts it on.


Black Ring Trends

More often, people are choosing a black silicone ring because of a general trend of men selecting black for fashion purposes. Black metals such as tungsten and titanium are exceptionally hard and strong, providing those who want a metal ring with one that will often outlast its other metal counterparts such as gold or silver. For others it is simply a bold statement that you don’t want to conform to the more traditional colors for wedding rings and that you would prefer to stand out from the crowd.


Other Benefits of Black

If you are a person selecting a silicone ring to wear, it is perhaps because you are concerned about the safety of wearing a more traditional metal ring. If you work in a field where you cannot wear jewelry because it poses a danger to your fingers, or you participate in hobbies where it’s uncomfortable and inadvisable to wear metal rings, your choice to go with silicone is more for safety than it is for style. In those instances, choosing a black silicone ring over other color options might also just be practical—if you are planning to wear your ring in the gym or at work where it could be exposed to dirt, chemicals, and other potential staining elements, then having a black ring means you don’t need to worry about it getting dirty or ruined.
