How Long Do Silicone Rings Last?

If you’re considering buying your first silicone ring, you are probably wondering just how durable they are. We want to be the first to break this to you:

Silicone rings can break.

But before you head out to your local mall jeweler for a metal ring, we want you to know that silicone rings break on purpose. They’re also incredibly durable. How does this make sense? Let’s take a look.

Truly Tough

Silicone rings are tough. They’re designed to stand up to a cornucopia of situations without breaking. Everything from extreme temperatures, to intense oils and chemicals, and even intense strain. These rings are not made of paper, and they will not break easily.

Beautifully Breakable

If you’ve never heard of ring avulsion, trust us and don’t Google image search it. It’s an ugly injury that can happen when your ring gets snagged on things and doesn’t break away. In extreme cases, this kind of injury can lead to accidental finger amputation. Silicone rings will not put your finger in this kind of danger. They’re designed to break away when put under extreme pressure so that your fingers stay safe.

Heirloom Jewelry

Silicone rings are not heirloom jewelry. What does that mean? It means that your goal in purchasing a silicone ring should not be to hand it down to your children and grandchildren. That’s not the purpose of a silicone ring. Could it last that long? Yes, it could. But that isn’t the design intention.

Guilt Free

If you’re prone to losing rings, or if your ring does break, then a silicone ring could be the perfect choice for you. QALO prices our silicone rings so that, if you do need to replace one, you can do it without breaking the bank. Our design is built around encouraging you to get those hands dirty and let those fingers explore the outdoors. If your ring isn’t quite as tough as you, though, you can choose a new one easily. This also allows you to have multiple rings, to change without mood, outfit, or activity.

So, what’s the bottom line? How long will your silicone ring last? So much of that is up to you. Silicone rings can be worn daily and last a very long time. Just know that if they need to break in order to keep your fingers safe, they’re going to do it.

And if your ring does break, that's covered under our one-time, anytime warranty! If your ring ever rips, tears, breaks, or stretches – we’ll replace it for free. No matter how long you’ve owned it.
