    glamachica45:  I work in an office, so I wear them everyday because no conflicts. For you, I probably wouldn’t wear them either if I did what you do. What about finding just a simple thin band you can wear under your gloves?

    I’m an office bee, so I get to wear my rings to work without issue. I agree with PP that a simple band may be a good middle ground for you. I know I feel odd when I am out in pulic without a ring on that finger.

    glamachica45:  I wear mine everyday but I have an office job.

    If you’re worried about people seeing you without rings but knowing you’re married…wouldn’t they also not be wearing rings for the same reason? Or are none of them married? Or do they just not wear rings at all?

    You could always get a pretty chain and wear them around your neck.

    I work in an office so yes I wear mine. But if I couldn’t I’d just get a plain band to wear at work.

    People aren’t generally staring at our hands but if it bothers you then you could always buy a plain wedding band to wear.

    I work part-time in greenhouses, so it is a) can damage the ring and b) can be a bit unappropriate to wear a diamond ring there (if to compare the salary and the cost of the ring), so my choice is to wear only w-band.

    If I will go back to lab work, I also will wear an e-ring again.

    I voted other. I’m a college biology professor. I wear my band every day, but I only wear my e-ring I days where I don’t have to wear gloves to teach a lab. My e-ring is to high to wear with my normal sized gloves, and I don’t want to lose dextierity by going up a size or risk ripping them when working with soemthing nasty. i just leave my e-ring at home those days. My band is fine in gloves. It’s not a plain one, but it doesn’t have any sharp edges either. I do feel sad leaving my e-ring at home a lot, I love it and I feel like I never where it anywhere anyone can see it, but it’s not worth damaging it with chemicals or other nasty things, or making myself sick by ripping my gloves.

    And also – the plain w-band sits perfectly under every type of gloves. You can choose a plain band and use it.

    glamachica45:  Why don’t you buy yourseld a nice chain and where them as a necklace?

    I remember the DR that delivered my son had hers on a necklace- since she couldn’t easily wear them under gloves.

    I sit in a cube in front of a computer, so no isses with wearing my rings. They’re all soldered together, so no option (unless I brought it in), to wear them separately.

    I’m in the military but work in an office. So when I’m doing things outside the office I plan on wearing this ^^^. It’s a silicone ring. The one pictured is the men’s version. The women’s is much smaller. They come in different colors too.

    glamachica45:  Not suggesting that you do this– but many people take into consideration thier profession (especially if it’s a medical or lab setting)– when choosing a ering.

    My cousin who is a nurse (soon to be nurse practitioner) choose a tension setting vs prongs.  

    While I don’t wear gloves or work in a medical or lab setting, I didn’t want a fussy e-ring, so I got a bezel set ring.  It’s lower, and no prongs.
