I wanted one for like beach vacations or visiting countries where it would feel weird to have on,  but Fiance is against it.. =  hes like.. thats what we got insurance for, and doesnt ever want a sub in its place.

I don’t have any issues with my ring at work, so I don’t have any alternate ring. I can totally see doing it if I did have any sort of issue like that, though.

I will be a police officer soon and my wedding band will have to be contoured to fit my e-ring. So, I am going to have to get a plain band that I can wear to work. I found one on etsy that I LOVE! But I am going to get the inside teal or turquoise to match our wedding colors. And I am going to get the inside engraved to say ‘family’ inside because as a police officer, my #1 goal at the end of the day it to get home safely to my family.

Like one of the PPs, my Fiance made sure to take out insurance on my ring (I tend to break things. A lot.) But I don’t have a job that puts my ring in jeopardy (like constantly catching it on gloves all day). I know how much of a pain that is, since I use to work in a lab.

One girl I used to work with had to wear two pairs of gloves each time for the same reason you mentioned. Her e-ring would rip through the thin latex. She could have benefitted from an “alternate” ring.

@KaitlinHudson: I too put on a bajillion gloves a day. I have taken to just wearing my wedding band when I have to work cause it is SOOOOO frustrating when you rip your glove. Plus I also wash my hands a bajillion times and it’s kind of a nuisance.

@KaitlinHudson:I would have to wear latex occasionally for my job, and it helped just to turn the stone around to palm before putting it on. 

I can understand needing to take it off, but because of the religious symbolism our wedding bands have, my husband and I rarely take ours off. My wedding band doesn’t have stones on it or anything though.

@MapleMoose: That kind of reminds me of someone “doubling” up on a condom, like it makes it any better lol?

I wear old rings I received from Fiance when we were dating when I hit the gym or do other actvities where I don’t want to risk damaging my ring. And @missfireslayer: I totally had the same thought! Haha.

I have a “stunt” ring for when I went to Mexico for my Honeymoon.  I really did it so it wouldn’t accidently slip off my finger and get lost.  I felt better knowing it was at home.

I highly recommend getting one because you get to go through the process of ring shopping…

Also, I do have insurance on my ring but I would still be devastated if I did lose it.

@KaitlinHudson: I have a diamond band that I’ve worn on my right hand for years. Whenever I need to take off my Engagement Ring (traveling, repairs, etc.) I just switch my right-hand ring over to the other side.

I am getting an elaborate (but flat) wedding band that I will wear daily instead of my e-ring (future nurse). Right now I often wear a stainless steel/diamond eternity band instead, because I’m just not good about wearing rings as it turns out.

We will be getting one when we go out of the country for our honeymoon. Even though it’s covered, I would feel better knowing it’s in a safety deposit box. I do know that the insurance company and Kay’s made my friend jump through hoops to get her ring replaced when she lost it. I don’t want to have to go through all that paperwork.
