    I wear mine bartending and serving. Now that its the correct size I never worry about losing it or anything. My ring is pretty low set which I think helps. My center stone is .5 with tcw almost 1. I also like having a noticeable ring because I hate being flirted with/ asked out by customers!

    I work in a restaurant as a cook and occasional server/bartender. I can’t wear my engagement ring in the kitchen. For those shifts I have a stand in band from Berricle. When I serve I wear my engagement ring.

    This is my work stand in. It’s a half eternity CZ band.

    And this is my engagement ring. I can’t wear it because the stone is set so high that it could puncture the pizzas I’m always making. That would not be good! Sorry the picture quality sucks – my phone’s camera is awful.

    I work as a server and still wear my ering.  My sister said I shouldn’t either, but I love my ring and I have insurance on it anyway.  There’s not a lot of banging of it on things.  I get it cleaned every 1.5-2 months bc it does tend to get dirty even when i wash it every time I wash my hands.

     

    I’m not sure my specs. But I do know my ring is raised at least 1/2 an inch off my finger.

    When I worked with my hands, I did not wear my rings. I wore a stand-in. I couldn’t chance ruining my pave or warping my shank.

    @Futurecoacheswife:  I was serving and didn’t wear my ring to work – but that’s because I don’t want to destroy it with the harsh soap that you have to wash your hands with every ten minutes – plus, tips are a little easier when you’re not wearing a rock (and weddings are expensive! lol)

    @Futurecoacheswife:  I got a lot of business clients. They like talking to a young girl. It’s awful, but that’s part of the job.

    At one point during my first Marriage, I took on part-time Evening & Weekend employment in addition to my day-time job (Cashier, Server, etc)

    And I NEVER took off my Bridal Set, so ya, I wore my rings… mind you they weren’t “all that” and so not BIG honking diamond, or rings of any large size or weight.

    They did not get in the way / were not an issue

    I have a GF who is a Bartender / Server… she got married a few years ago, and she too wears her rings 24/7×365

    I asked her about it after she first got married (she loved her rings very much) when she said she thought she’d leave em at home etc

    But here we are several years later, and now she wears them all the time.

    She says she came to accept them and not worry about the risks so much when her Friends, Family and especially her Fiance / Hubby pointed out to her that they were meant to be worn…

    Hope this helps,

    Hmm, well in that case, I guess you could opt for a stand in… or once married just go with a plain band worn solo

    But in all reality, unless it is a HUGE rock, I don’t think people will notice or care as much as you think

    I’ve had GFs in service industries rock good sized ERings without issue…

    Tips are based truly on Customer Service… so if you are top drawer, then you should be getting good tips no matter what your ring looks like

    I work as a barista inside a Target and we’re not allowed to wear jewelry, other than a plain band, so I unfortunately can’t wear mine. Most of my shifts are closing ones that involve a lot of cleaning, washing dishes, etc though, so it’s probably for the best.
