@paigeannt:  this is silly but on Grey’s Anatomy the female doctors safety pin their rings to the inside of their scrubs. Maybe you could pin yours inside your shirt.

I put gloves over my ring all the time, the gloves don’t tear. I do have to take it off frequently at work and will just put it in my pocket for a while.  Could you try a necklace made from a different metal to see if it doesn’t react?

@paigeannt:  I would leave mine in the ring box, hidden somewhere out of sight in my locked vehicle.

I can’t wear my ring at work because I work with heavy machinery and it’s a safety issue. We can’t wear any jewelry,  so the necklace option is out, and I would be afraid to lose or damage it if it was pinned to my clothes. I keep my ring in its ring box in my lunch bag, which is in my locker when I’m not eating lunch. If I had no locker I would probably lock it in the glove box of my truck.

I have a little jewelery pouch with a zipper that I keep hidden in my desk when I need to take my ring off.

I’m a scientist and have the same issues (nobody needs MRSA in their prongs after their gloves break, amiright?). Honestly, I just don’t wear it during the week – and I definitely don’t bring it to work, as I think it introduces too many opportunities to lose the ring. I have a solid wedding band with no stones/prongs/3D texture, and I just wear that alone.

 My friends who are surgical nurses attach their ring to a safety pin with a rubberband so the ring does not get scratched, and pin it on the inside of their bra cup before work. One of my friends lost her ring because it was pinned to the inside of her (hospital owned) scrubs and she forgot it was there and turned them into the laundry department.


Maybe you can buy a cheap stand in ring to wear during the week, and stash the cheap one somewhere (in your bra, or wherever) and you can switch to your real ring when you get home. If you use the stamd it, you wont be upset if it does get lost at work, but you still have something to wear on the way to/from work, and if you go out after work.
