    Why not wrap a piece of gauze around your ring once you get to work? then you can still wear your ring, it won’t rip your gloves, and it can be easily removed when you’re done. No expensive wraps, no hard feelings, and you get to wear your ring!

    I think you should leave your rings exactly as they are and do one of thre things: 1) get a low-profile stand-in ring that you wear to work every day, while leaving your e-ring at home, 2) experiment with ways to wrap your e-ring so that it doesn’t tear your gloves (i.e. placing an adhesive bandage over it in the north-south direction, perhaps), or 3) wear your e-ring everywhere except to work.

    Google silicone ring wrapper. It will cover your rings sharp edges so hopefully it won’t rip gloves. Or wear it on a necklace at work?

    ETA I don’t think adding a wrap will help.

    You could also wear your e-ring on a necklace when you’re at work. I once saw online a special pendant for holding e-rings, designed for people in a surgical field.

    Have you checked out Ring Cozies? http://www.theringcozy.com/


    I’ve never used them and have no experience with them – but they’re all over Instagram. People seem to use them a lot when they workout, but perhaps they’ll be smooth enough for your gloves to go on without ripping… although they might be really bulky.

    GreenBayBee:  Lol no worries. Like I said, I’ve never even used one – I just seem them all over Instagram. I think if someone had a super outdoors-y lifestyle it would be good for them. As for me, when I go to the gym I just take my ring off and put it back on after, lol.

    Well once you are married you could just wear your wedding band at work… you won’t feel naked and you can add the e ring back when you get home. Lots of nurses do that.

    ce0604:  lol this makes me laugh! Wouldn’t it just be easier to take the ring off rather than carry around this thing for in case you ever need it? Haha
