Safe to wear Ring on necklace chain?

@mg1363:  Getting a ring holder necklace sounds like a great idea. However, for the gym, if it were me personally I would probably just leave the ring at home or locked away somewhere safely. I wouldn’t want to wear a necklace at the gym any more than I’d like to wear a ring. Imagine it bouncing around on the treadmill, or maybe getting caught on equipment in the weight room…

As for what would scratch a ring, I would recommend sticking with equal or softer metals for the necklace, if you go that route. Just like you would with pairing another ring. Don’t get a platinum chain if your ring is white gold, because platinum is harder. Sterling silver is softer, and it’s cheaper… so it should be reasonably safe for your ring.

The vice versa is true with platinum and gold, platinum is softer and gold will scratch it.

I wore my ring on my chain with a cross (all 18k gold) during my martial arts class a few times, on the last occasion I realised I damaged my ring from the clashing against each other. I have two lines engraved on either side of my ring and wearing it on my chain squashed one line and filled it (if that makes sense) so I wouldn’t recommend it.
