    Stephy33:  it’s hard to say. Jewelers recommend not showering with rings or wearing them when using products like oils and hair spray. I would honestly recommend just getting a plain rose gold band to wear while you work and taking your engagement ring off. 

    i used to wear my ring and nevwr take it off and it got so dirty and hard to clean.

    Stephy33:  thank you! you’re right about it being so exciting! I wear just my wedding band at work since I have to wear latex gloves all day and the oils on my hands gets the ring all funky.  But whenever I get the chance I wear my ER. I love it!  just get something that makes you happy, if you love your ring now keep it and get a work ring!

    If you are concerned about the halo diamonds falling out and the difficulty of wearing your ring as a hairdresser, I would go for a completely different style. i don’t think trading one halo for another will solve your problem. I would go with a low set solitaire, bezel set or something much simpler if you are concerned about these things.

    Your ring should be fine, if you go with a well known jeweler, they should have some type of insurance or something you can buy. Most of them will have you bring your ring in to inspect it every so often, but you’ll have peace of mind.

    Stephy33:  Yeah, I think so. I think being a hairdresser, the only issue may be hair being caught in the ring. When i run my fingers through my hair, my ring gets caught. I have a solitaire with shared prong side stones. I don’t think the ring will be damaged, and as long as you have a good warrantly, any lost side stones should be replaced. Just be sure to insure your ring and you will be fine

    Stephy33:   I think either way, it will be beautiful.

     

    That being said, if you’re concerned that being a hairdresser would make your ring (as is, right now) annoying to work with, I’d try working with it for a week or so and see if it gets in the way too much.<br /><br />If you find it gets in the way or is just making you nervous, I’d go ahead for the rose gold.  Rose gold is really pretty and I think it’s kindof unique.  Also, it SEEMS either one would be fine with your skin tone (unless your fingers have way more pink undertones in real life than the picture shows…in that case, it could end up being too much pink).

    Get what you love and wear it!! I think if it is well made, you will be fine. i have a solitaire which obviously is easy to wear and sturdy, but I also have my husband’s mom’s antique quad with princess stones and baguettes down the side, matched with a baguette wedding band. i wear that set a lot too, at the barn under gloves, while grooming horses, riding horses and have not lost a stone. Plus, this had been worn by her for years before she passed away. Its from the early 70’s and has lasted this long.
