The worst part? It was cold. I was cutting open a cow leg that I was keeping in the fridge for a few hours so it wouldn’t decompose. This is what researchers do for you guys!! So if you ever get arthritis I don’t want any complaining about “no one cares about me.” or “my medicine is too expensive.” LOL jk.

@MissMarple:  The post prongs are THE WORST for breaking through gloves. Avoid post prongs at all costs – claw prongs or bezels are the best for gloves. Brand helps too. The Knight brand of gloves is *the best* … plus they come in black, so you pretty much look like a badass all day at work and other researchers are jealous of how cool your gloves are.

I have a 1.75ct princess solitaire and diamond wedding band and I wear it to work everyday.  In fact, DH gets upset when I don’t wear them!  I’m a high school science teacher so it’s not like I have a job working construction. Wink

I feel safer having them on me then leaving them at home.

@MrsBluth:  I don’t know if mine is large, but I wear it to work. 🙂 I’ve tried not, but then I just miss it. I get compliments, but they make me smile. WEAR THAT ROCK GIRL!!!

Hell ya I wear mine to work!  I always figure if people don’t like it they don’t have to look at it.  Wink

I’m not engaged quite yet but I will absolutely wear mine to work! The only time I wouldn’t is if I worked in a field that would be hard on the ring. Mine’s really not THAT big but it’s decent IMO just big enough (and colorful enough!) to be noticed =)

I wear my ring to work every single day, and my dentist did comment once that he has no idea how I get my gloves over it without ripping them. 😀 It isn’t terribly large, around 7.5mm, in a low set 6 prong solitaire.

Now, when I have my 5 stone ring with a 2.5ct center, *that* might be a “not at work” ring. Maybe. We’ll see. 😉

Nope.  Unless I’m guaranteed to not be seeing any clients or stepping into a courthouse I am only going to wear a plain band and possibly a very modest eternity band.

I work in insurance and financial services so I have no reason to hide my ring. In fact appearing prosperous is a GOOD thing I’d say. But if I were in a field wearing gloves, working at a non profit or something along those lines I’d just wear a band.
