@BunnyBrideToBe: I would leave it at home. Just in case. What if you got there and they made you take it off?

Better to just leave it at home.

Id leave it at home, maybe wear another ring you own thats not so sparkly and flashy on your hand as a stand in? That way you dont feel naked but you are within the prison guidlines?

@BunnyBrideToBe: I totally understand. My e-ring is an antique family heirloom. I would never be able to live with myself it something happened to it, therefore on Mon-Thurs nights I don’t wear it to work. Which really stinks, but Friday morning I was reminded why I don’t.It is funny how attached you can get.

I was trying to move a difficult patient and my spoon ring (also very old….eep!) got hung on the bed rail and bent. It was on my left middle finger. Imagine if I had my e-ring on!

Could you wear it on a chain around your neck? You could easily conceal in under your shirt and then wouldn’t have to be “not wearing” it.

@KatyElle: That’s a good idea. Then you could put it back on for “date night”

i would wear it and if they make you take it off, which i think is HIGHLY doubtful, then don’t lock it up, but wear something with pockets and keep it safe in there.

i am saying to wear it because to me it sounds like you are over thinking this and although there is this dress code, i highly doubt every prison guard will be checking everyone’s fingers thoroughly!  my guess is they wont say anything at all.

You could wear it and just turn it around where it looks like a band when you walk in and if they say anything it’s only one ring, as required.

You could always safety pin it to your bra 🙂

I would just leave it at home for the day.  But, full disclosure, I work at a place that we’re only allowed to wear one plain wedding band, so I leave my rings at home most days.

From what you say about their code, it’s sounds like it’s more of a “we-don’t-want-gang-symbols” dress code than a “we’re-afraid-of-it-getting-stolen” issue. Especially with the religious necklace issue. I would wear it, but turn it around so the rock is on the inside of your palm.
