Why Silicone Rings are the Perfect Alternative Wedding Bands
Maybe you’ve heard about silicone rings. Maybe you’ve seen others wearing silicone rings as alternative wedding bands. Maybe you’ve been thinking about making the jump from traditional to trendy yourself.
If you find that you’re caught in a revolving door of weighing pros and cons surrounding silicone rings, here are our tell-tale signs that you’re ready to make the switch to silicone.
You have an active lifestyle.
If you’re always on-the-move with an active lifestyle, whether you play sports or enjoy doing outdoor activities in your spare time, a silicone ring is the best choice. These athletic rings offer the flexibility and breathability you need, being comfortable to wear no matter how much you’re moving and sweating. And, as a bonus, they’re easy to maintain!
You have a manually intensive job.
Do you have a physically demanding job that requires you to work with your hands every day? If so, metal wedding bands can be dangerous if they get caught or snagged on an object or piece of machinery on the job.
From chefs and construction workers to military personnel and first-aid responders, silicone rings are a safer option than traditional metal rings since they are heat resistant, non-conductive and are designed to break away when placed under extreme stress.
You’re a healthcare professional.
Our high-quality silicone rings are made from 100 percent medical-grade silicone to provide reliable durability even when exposed to harsh chemicals and conditions, making them an ideal ring choice for any healthcare professional who wears gloves on the job, such as surgeons, lab workers, nurses and others.
You've damaged your metal ring(s).
Damagedwedding bands are no fun. Not only is your spouse very likely upset, but your ring may also be ill-fitting, making you kind-of cranky too. The repair process for traditional metal rings can be costly and time-consuming.
Our suggestion? Take this frustrating (but not uncommon) event as a sign. It’s an opportunity to make the jump to silicone rings. And unlike your metal rings, a QALO will never be bent or stretched out of shape, have loose prongs, or snag on a sweater. Our Q2X line is the toughest silicone ring on the market.
You've lost your rings (or are worried about losing your rings).
Are you prone to forgetting where you put things? Or do you have a busy life where you are likely to take off your rings to get through the day?
If your wedding band or favorite ring is on the lamb, consider replacing it with a silicone ring.
We imagine things at home are not very awesome if you’ve lost your traditional wedding ring. These rings are almost invaluable. Not only do they represent a deep commitment, but they’re also extremely expensive to replace.
Our alternative wedding bands are value-rich, meaning if ring loss is a regular thing for you, it’s easier and more affordable to replace rings without causing major stress at home.
If you’ve got a lost ring, it’s time to switch to silicone.
You don’t wear the rings that you have.
This can happen for a variety of reasons. Maybe they’re now the wrong size for you and have become uncomfortable or, more likely — as mentioned above — your job or lifestyle isn’t friendly to metal rings.
Or maybe your hands swell due to weather or a medical condition like diabetes, pregnancy or other health issues that cause traditional rings to be really uncomfortable.
Another common culprit? Maybe the wedding band you chose decades ago just isn’t your style anymore.
If you find that you’re not wearing your traditional rings, or that you constantly have to remove them, it’s time to switch to silicone. Our crossover rings are the perfect blend of trendy and traditional.
You struggle to find a comfortable fit.
When a ring industry has to give names like, “Comfort Fit” and “Comfort Band” to their products, there’s a reason. It’s because they’re not comfortable.
Face it – our finger isn’t a perfect circle. It makes no sense to buy a rigid ring that is.
You’ll never find a “Comfort Fit” QALO because we don’t have to solve the problem of an uncomfortable fit. Our flexible athletic rings move with your fingers, no matter what shape they take. And they’re always comfortable.
Sick of wearing uncomfortable rings? It’s time to switch to silicone. Our ring size guide is the perfect place to start.
You have metal allergies.
Would you believe that as many as 20 percent of the population has some level of allergy or sensitivity to the metal alloys found in traditional rings? And it doesn’t have to turn your finger green in order to be a bad fit for your unique biochemistry either. If a ring causes calloused, dry skin, that’s a sign of a poor reaction to the metal. If this sounds like you, it’s time to switch to silicone. Our rings are 100 percent hypoallergenic.
