By now, you've probably seen guys wearing silicone wedding bands on their left ring fingers. Whether on the fingers of NFL players, your local police officers, or the guys at the CrossFit box, these rings are bucking tradition and taking over the wedding ring industry. We decided to uncover why guys are trading in their traditional wedding rings for more functional versions. \n\nSafety (and comfort) first. \nDesigned for your safety and comfort, QALO rings are meant for hard-working, active hands. Their medical-grade silicone and patented Q2X material keep your hands safe from ring avulsion, conduction, and more. Even if you don't work with heavy machinery, and just enjoy golfing, surfing, or working out, they keep your fingers safer and are more comfortable than any other ring. \n\nOptions, options, options. \nQALO offers over 30 colors and styles to choose from, and their patented Q2X material is 10x more resistant to gas, oil, and household chemicals than standard silicone. No matter your job or lifestyle, odds are, there's a ring for you! We really love the newest Step Edge Q2X rings, but Black and Cement Grey Q2X are best-sellers. \n\nThey give back a whole lot. \nThe company invests in multiple philanthropic partners and non-profit organizations with special edition rings. Proceeds from every purchase of the limited edition rings directly benefit organizations like Barbells for Boobs, National Fallen Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, the Alliance for Lupus Research, and more.\n\nCustomer Service is actually their top priority. \nThe company will do everything they can to help their community. If the over 5,000 five-star customer reviews are any indication, their customers clearly feel valued. Take a few minutes to read some reviews and you will see what we mean \n\nIt's run by two friends who cherish their wives. \nFor QALO cofounders, Ted \u0026amp; KC, metal wedding bands didn't make sense for their active lives. So they decided to create rings that did. Their friendship and commitment spills over into the company culture and makes QALO a special community to belong to. \n\nThey can customize one-of-a-kind rings. \nJust like the traditional metal bands, QALO rings can be custom engraved to include any message you choose. Maybe it's your wedding date, or your spouse's name, or the initials of your kid's names, you can say a lot with 12 characters.\n\nDollars \u0026amp; Sense \nThe average price of a traditional men's wedding band is around $600, while a functional QALO wedding ring starts at only $19.99. Both are symbols of love and the commitment made in marriage, but one leaves you comfortable, safe, and with a lot more $$$ in the bank. Plus, 40% of all married men in the US will lose their wedding bands. That's over 20 million rings lost! \nSave yourself a headache, and make the switch to QALO rings.
