    I never had a stand-in but when I worked in a hospital I’d just put my ring on a necklace during my shift.

    I work in a restaurant and have to stick my hands in nasty dish water a lot, so I am planning on wearing a cheap CZ ring while I’m at work. I want something to signify that I’m engaged, but don’t want anything to happen to my real ring. I’m also in nursing school, so I will probably wear the fake ring to school and the hospital.

    As a nurse, you won’t want to risk getting your ring caught on a tube, cord, etc or having it covered in all the random fluids you encounter.  Plus, you’re often wearing gloves and the ring cound cut through the gloves (I know my ring rips my latex gloves when I’m wearing them for painting projects) and exposure you to dangerous situations.

    I vote getting a plain band to wear while at work.

    i work in the lab, so i have gloves on all the time. i was worried that my ring (which has a very high setting) would tear my gloves or get in the way, but it actually turns to the side just fine and hasn’t caused me any problems.  i work with some chemicals, so maybe over time i will regret this decision, but i think i’m just going to wear mine all the time.  i did get a CZ ring from berricle to wear on vacations because i worry about losing it.

    For a nurse, I would recommend that you get a plain band to wear while you are at work or something that won’t snag and tear your latex gloves.

    I work in an office, but some days I even just wear my plain band because I don’t like it when my engagement ring bangs on things, and I always wear my plain ring when I’m doing sporty activities, like gardening, kayaking, etc.

    I’d go with a plain band.  Wearing your ering seems like a needless risk to take.

    I’ve been a CNA for a few years and I would never wear my engagement ring to work!  When I first got it I wore it on a chain around my neck because everybody was asking to see it.  But now, I just leave it at home in it’s box.  When I wore my promise ring all the time, before I got my engagement ring I didn’t wear that either.

    A few times I have worn a plain silver band, but I’ve found it makes my skin itch with all the hand washing.  I much prefer to wear no rings while I’m working.  It’s more comfortable and feel more sanitary because bacteria can’t get trapped under the band.

    I keep looking at AuloraLocks but haven’t broken down a bought one yet.

    I’m getting a hammered band, which is somewhat similar to FI’s, for sports, camping, travel.
