One of my good friends is married to a police officer and she was considering something like this, but ultimately decided to go with another choice that matched her E-ring. I think it is really meaningful and would be a wonderful choice though – you love your officer and you’re also marrying into the lifestyle : )

I like the idea. What’s your FI think?

I think this is so cool. My soon to be husband and myself are both police officers and I showed him this post! Beautiful on both counts! This is what he likes: 

 

(Your first one is a style we’ve looked at, too)

Personally I will be keeping my band all white/diamond because I have used the off duty “im just a dumb blonde” card in several instances where being identified as a cop might have sent things south.

I wish I could help. I suggested this idea to DH, as he already owns a couple of blue thin and red line rings (he is police and fire). While, he thought it was a cool idea, he ultimately decided that his career does not define him as a husband nor does it have any real reflection or sentiment within our marriage. So, we ultimately went for something very masculine, but more traditional.

Blackrabbit:  I don’t think having a bit of blue on your wedding band or e-ring would scream, “HEY EVERYONE I AM A COP” but maybe that’s just me….

TheGridMonster:  It def would scream that to anyone who is a cop, has an immediate family member who is a cop and/or anyone who is married to a cop.

Or hates cops for a living. Any sort of criminal knows what the thin blue line is just as well as a police officer does.

PoliticallyIncorrect:  But Blackrabbit seemed concerned that she didn’t want certain people to identify her as a cop. It doesn’t seem like she’d be worried about another cop or a SO of a cop identifying her as a cop.

I’m just saying, I don’t think non-cops would see a ring like the examples posted here and automatically assume that the wearer must be a cop/be married to one.

Blackrabbit:  Ok, if you say so. I just don’t know anyone who would see the rings that have been posted ITT and think, “That person is a cop!” over “That person likes blue!”

I agree with you. Normally, no. but I have personally been identified outside of work, based on a visible thin blue line bracelette I had on at the time. 🙂 Now I am just paranoid! It’s still super beautiful, and I like the idea. I don’t mind if my fiance wears it. 

I guess im just a weirdo! 🙂

TheGridMonster:  Maybe. I honestly don’t know how familiar anyone who has zero involvement in law enforcement would interpret the ring. However, for me, seeing anyone wearing jewelry with a thin blue line would be similar to seeing a man/woman in the grocery store wearing scrubs… I would assume they were in healthcare. That’s how big of a representation that blue line is to law enforcement… Many cops even have the blue lines blatantly on their badges… People change their Facebook profile pic to a thin blue line when a cop is killed, etc… So, I think you could safely assume seasoned criminals would be familiar with it to some degree.

I think this is a great idea. My officer injured his back at work and can no longer bea cop, but if he was this is definitely something I would consider. You could always get something custom to go with your ering better if needed.

My husband got this ring, and he’s not a cop. I never thought of thin blue lines relating to cops honestly.  He loved it because blue was his favorite color.
