Random question ahead. 🙂 We live in Williamsburg, VA so we spend majority of our Summer at BG and Water Country. Since the season is almost upon us and I just got engaged this month I’ve been thinking about my ring going with us to the water park. My ring is a full eternity band and it’s a size 6.5. I could probably use a smaller size but I have fat knuckles (thanks dad) and I need it to be a little bigger to fit over them. Whenever my hands get really wet my ring gets really loose. The head of it can even go all the way around to my palm sometimes. When my hands are soaked I pull it and it doesn’t slip off my finger, it still takes a decent pull. However it just has me so worried about going to the water park and losing it. Should I leave it off or do you think it will be fine? Thanks!

Not only will you risk losing it, if it is a white gold ring the chlorine in the water can erode the rhodium plating. In general, the pool chemicals are really bad for jewelry.

I wouldn’t chance it. If a friend told me she lost her ring at a water park my first question would be, “why the hell did you wear your ring to a water park?!”

Just leave it at home. I’m sure you’re fiance will understand.

I say leave it at home if your worried about it… No sense in having to stress about it all day…
I say head to walmart or target or something and invest in a cheap stand in… It won’t last forever but then your finger won’t feel naked and you won’t have to worry about losing your real one!

I never wear my e-ring when I swim, go to the beach, etc. I have a little box I keep it in while we travel so I don’t lose it, but I usually leave it behind for things like that.

I was going to say the same thing about chlorine. I don’t wear my ring around any sort of chemicals, so I definitely wouldn’t wear it in the pool.
