Why Choose a Silicone Ring?
Although typically sold under this general term, silicone rings are fabricated from high-tech elastomers and polymers. These space-age materials have a unique combination of strength and flexibility, making them ideal for fabricating safe, durable rings and wedding bands.
Some of the most common reasons that people choose silicone over metal rings are safety, comfort and affordability. You can wear a silicone ring even if you work in construction or other high-risk fields. You can also safely wear your wedding band while playing sports or working out. These rings are ideal if you have a metal allergy or sensitivity as well. But, in many cases, people chose silicone rings because they like the countless design and color options that fit their personality and sense of style.
This material is safe, hypoallergenic and non-toxic, making silicone rings ideal for anyone who has an allergy or sensitivity to metals. And, should you get your ring caught on anything, this flexible material will break before it causes damage to the skin or tissues of your fingers.
Like any type of jewelry, silicone rings may differ in size from manufacturer to manufacturer. However, it most cases, you will find that you wear the same size silicone ring as you do a traditional metal band.
Not only are silicone rings waterproof but they stand up to almost anything you can throw at them, from heat and cold to many types of chemicals. You can use water to clean your ring without worrying about rust, corrosion or damage.
In most cases, silicone rings are non-conductive. This makes them safe to wear if you work around any form of electricity, high-voltage, live wiring, etc. You can choose styles that are infused with precious metals to provide a more traditional appearance. If you work as an electrician or are concerned about conductivity, check with the ring manufacturer to be sure your selection does not contain any metals.
Silicone rings are hypoallergenic and non-toxic, making them ideal for anyone who has sensitive skin or suffers from metal allergies.
Anyone can wear a silicone ring but they’re particularly appropriate for people who play sports, enjoy outdoor adventures or who works in a hazardous environment. Silicone bands are especially popular with chefs, weightlifters, mechanics, construction workers (especially electricians), law enforcement officers, doctors, nurses, first responders, climbers, cyclists, hunters and members of the military.
Although not every manufacturer offers engraving or personalization, many of the most well-known and well-respected silicone ring makers do offer this option. Choosing an engraved silicone wedding band allows you to express your love and wear the message of your commitment on your hand every day of your life, no matter where your journey leads.
As durable as they are stylish, your silicone ring can last for decades with normal wear. But, if things get dicey, your band will break under potentially dangerous amounts of tension, preventing potentially devastating injuries to your fingers and hand.
Order your silicone ring in the same size you would order any other ring. You can expect silicone bands to fit and feel just like any other ring, but with an added dimension of softness and comfort.
Although you should always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for your silicone band, most can be cleaned simply by soaking in a cup of water with a few drops of liquid dish soap. Rinse and dry the ring with a soft, lint-free cloth or microfiber towel.
The beauty of silicone rings is how truly affordable they are. At a mere fraction of the cost of a precious metal band, anyone can afford to show their commitment with one of these stylish bands. You can even choose one infused with the precious metal of your choice – including diamond, rose gold or black pearl – and not spend more than $40.
