I love the QALO ring for many reasons, but mostly because I NEVER have to take it off! Being in the kitchen constantly for the blog, my family, etc. means my hands are always wet or dirty and lifting is also one of the main reasons I abandoned my regular white gold and diamond bands. I won't go into huge detail here, but my husband and I went through a very rough patch a couple of years ago, to the point where I wasn't wearing my rings daily. We moved past that but then started lifting together and again abandoned our rings, but for my husband, the symbol behind it was never lost and he was never comfortable with me not wearing my ring. But I just couldn't do it! I hate having to take it on and off 16,000 times a day!
In any case, I'm a huge supporter of these bands for many reasons. Sure they are practical and allow 1st responders the freedom of wearing their rings, as well as lifters and regular gym goers, but most importantly they allow us to really show our loves we care. That is the big thing for me. For the past couple years we've been scratching our heads trying to figure out a way to show a symbol of our marriage without having to wear the rings, but now we can again and I am very thankful of that.
