What To Look For In A Silicone Ring

We’re thrilled to hear that you’re considering buying a silicone ring. Apart from their immense value, these are rings that are beautiful, built to last, and represent individual style better than many other jewelry options on the market today. That doesn’t mean that choosing your first QALO will be an easy choice, though. With so many colors, shapes, and designs to choose from, making that first choice can be overwhelming. Here are the five things you need to ask yourself before you buy your first silicone ring.

Will it warp?

It’s a legitimate concern! Since silicone is a stretchy material, we understand that you may be concerned about how your ring will hold up over time. The good news is that while your ring may stretch to move with your finger, it will always return to its original shape. And while your ring may stretch slightly over time, it will never shrink.

How sensitive is my skin?

Jewelry experts estimate that up to 5% of people have a metal sensitivity or allergy. That means that, pending how sensitive they are, a traditional ring can cause their finger to turn colors, break out in hives, or even develop blisters. For these people, the easy choice is a hypoallergenic silicone ring. But buyer beware! Not all silicone is made the same, and some silicone rings could be made with other elements as well, leading to more skin sensitivity issues. That’s why QALO uses only the highest quality silicone in our rings. That way you’re guaranteed a hypoallergenic experience that even the most sensitive of skin can handle.

Are they comfortable?

Silicone rings are the height of comfort. They’re designed to be light as air and flexible, meaning that they move with your hand. One concern that many people have is that the rings will be hot, or cause their fingers to sweat. While this can happy with a rubber ring, we offer a number of styles that are designed with a comfort fit. That means your QALO will be comfortable, breathable, and guaranteed to move with you.

Will it break?

Yes. But only if it needs to. Instead of seeing the potential for breakage as a setback for silicone, consider this − If your finger ever becomes caught in a dangerous situation, a silicone ring will break free of your finger, whereas a traditional metal ring cannot. In this way, yes, your ring may be broken, but your finger won’t be. Plus, if breakage or damage does occur, that's covered under our warranty. Learn more about it here

Will I love it?

We think this is an easy yes. But, of course, that decision is ultimately yours. Since silicone rings are an emerging fashion, we make it easy to try them with little risk. First, you can use our tips for ring sizing to find the perfect size. And then, later, if you receive your ring and decide that you don’t love the color, design, or fit, we’ve got you covered.
